starving on Food Stamps / SNAP

PSRaT | Apr 11, 201511:38 AM

anyone catch the idiotic CNN reporting of Gwyneth Paltrow and Mario Batali surviving on Food Stamps aka SNAP?

it's here:
http://www.cnn.com/2015/04/11/enterta...

according to the news splash, people on Food Stamps aka SNAP are expected to survive on $29 per week.

well, I suppose if you're a big star making nothing more than $200,000-300,000 per week, your SNAP / Food Stamp benefit may be reduced.

for people who really need assistance, this is what the program provides:

the dollars per week in every event exceed Gwyn's/Mario's "we owe them more" numbers of $29 per week. mostly by double or more.

fine reporting by . . . .
