Why does this not have more publicity. This needs it!
Signal boosting this A) because it deserves to be seen by more people, and b) because I appreciate some members of Congress are actually willing to see what it’s like living on food stamps in order to make their point about how horrifying cutting food stamps would be.
News flash, regressives: people on food stamps do not load up on Snickers bars and filet mignon. They’re limited in what they can buy, and oftentimes, it’s not enough to get by on. Go on thinking these are entitlements that let minorities live lives of luxury, comfortable in the knowledge that you’ll never go hungry.
You privileged, elitist pricks.
READ THIS, let it make love to your eyes!
and REMEMBER Even finding the challenge difficult, these people don’t have to deal with: 1.) Not having transportation 2.) Not living near a grocery store 3.) Not being exhausted from a day of hard, physical labor 4.) Not having a screaming child in tow 5.) BEING FOLLOWED AROUND THE STORE LIKE A SUSPICIOUS THIEVING CRIMINAL
and last but not least
The hopelessness of knowing that this is what your life will be for the foreseeable future. The hopelessness of no way out.
