Rep. Ryan’s Food Stam Challenge

For some reason, blogger won’t let me paste the URL as a link, so you’ll have to copy and paste:

Anyway, Rep. Tim Ryan, who was one of the signers of the rebellious letter discussed in my last post, is doing a “Food Stamp Challenge,” living off of food stamps. That sounds great, and is something all elected officials in DC should be required to do: live off of the minimum applicable government program.

However, his “experiment” began with shopping at hugely overpriced yuppie supermarket Safeway. I think I might have actually gone there once in an emergency.
