SNAP Judgment

December 5, 2012
Posted by Jay Livingston

Mayor Booker’s decision to go on the SNAP diet has gotten a lot of coverage in the press.  His hometown paper, the Star-Ledger, had him on the front page.

If this is really what the mayor bought with his food stamps, there’s one stereotype he’s not putting to rest – the Coastal elitist.  Yes, he’s got the Goya garbanzos and frijoles, and he’s got the yams.

But organic extra virgin olive oil?  Really, Cory.

Or Bush 41 never having seen a price scanner. But Obama was right -- Whole Foods does charge outrageous prices for arugula.

Maybe he was trying to indicate that you can actually do a lot within the food stamp allowance?
