Las Vegas Mayor Living On Food Stamps

video platformvideo managementvideo solutionsvideo player`

Carolyn Goodman may be the only mayor in the United States on food stamps, but it’s only temporary. Goodman is taking part in a Las Vegas food bank’s challenge to live on $4.06 per day– the amount a single person who qualifies for food stamps...

There is also a certain fat ass Republican we would also like to see on this diet: Newt Gingrich.

Newt called Obama as the “food stamp” president.

President Obama's response to Diane Sawyer: 

First of all, I don’t put people on food stamps. People become eligible for food stamps. Second of all, the initial expansion of food-stamp eligibility happened under my Republican predecessor, not under me. Number three, when you have a disastrous economic crash that results in 8 million people losing their jobs, more people are going to need more support from government.

Rightardia has pointed out before that Food Stamps or the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) is the most effective of government programs according to Moody's Analytics. For every dollar spend, SNAP has a multiplier of $1.73 that benefits the economy.

As a historian, Newt should also know that food riots caused the French Revolution and the communist revolution in China. The Arab Spring started with food riots in Tunisia and Algeria.
