Food stamp recipients pinched by high food prices

You aren't going to convince me that pop and chips are a financially responsible purchase if you are claiming to not have enough money for food. Period.There are hundreds of things more filling, healthier, and cheaper. Ramen, canned foods, bread.... I am fine with people who need a little extra assistance and are responsible, but I have no sympathy for the single mom gets $300/month and then blows it on junk food at midnight at the Liquor-Mart and then complains about not being able to feed her baby.

I can not think of one reason why a person who doesn't have enough money to buy enough food would ever buy soda pop.Just because it is "cheaper than healthier food" doesn't mean you should buy it.

"many in Kladis' store pushing carts laden with soda pop, bags of cookies and chips - much of it cheaper than healthier food - are doing what they can to stretch their shrinking buying power."Are you kidding me? Maybe if these idiots realized that 6 boxes of mac and cheese costs the same as a bag of chips they wouldn't run out of food halfway into the month.
