One of my loyal readers forwarded me a story about a subject that I wrote about some time ago that generated some steam. It appears Rep Phil Roe has proposed a bill that would require only healthy food purchases with food stamps or EBT.
It is a great read and I will not take away from it’s content but one statistic I read must be talked about. The story references a study done in 2012 that showed food stamp recipients spent 2 billion, yes that was billion, on junk food. Wow that’s a lot of money. There is no way food stamps should be used for this amount of money for people to purchase junk food.
It will be interesting to hear how others feel about this proposed bill.
Representative Phil Roe you have my support.
