    Republican aide fails to live on food stamps after mocking Dems for it




    .5 hrs ago
    Donny Ferguson, an aide for Rep. Steve Stockman of Texas, failed the "SNAP Challenge" last week after mocking Democrats for their inability to adhere to the $31.50 weekly budget afforded by the food stamp program. Ferguson's initial release bragged he was able to buy red beans and rice, peanut butter and even popsicles (but no vegetables), before adding, "Reality has a way of mocking liberalism." Of course, days later, he had to take an unexpected trip, and ended up going about 14 percent over budget. Now, while most food stamp recipients aren't making unexpected flights, the situation underscores how little breathing room there is for people in the program. [Source]
