NPR: Apparently, some Food Stamp recipients in Ohio have to cut back on ice cream

NPR ran a story recently on how the state of the Ohio economy is forcing some people to have to cut back on groceries. Check out excerpts below. Thanks to Moonbattery for highlighting this story. Gloria Nunez and her daughter Angelica Hernandez, featured in this story, are pictured below. You can see this pic and read the full story at the NPR link at the top of this column. Socialist media places failed socialist polices on public display.

Nunez and most of her siblings and their spouses are unemployed and rely on government assistance and food stamps. Some have part-time jobs, but working is made more difficult with no car or public transportation.

Nunez, 40, has never worked and has no high school degree. She says a car accident 17 years ago left her depressed and disabled, incapable of getting a job. Instead, she and her daughter, Angelica Hernandez, survive on a $637 Social Security check and $102 in food stamps.

The rising cost of food means their money gets them about a third fewer bags of groceries — $100 used to buy about 12 bags of groceries, but now it’s more like seven or eight. So they cut back on expensive items like meat, and they don’t buy extras like ice cream anymore. Instead, they eat a lot of starches like potatoes and noodles.

    Well, when you sit around with nothing to do all day, what else is there but to eat and reproduce?

    thank God these people can’t afford meat and ice cream!! I would hate to see how big they would be if they had the extra money to burn (or eat).
