Cory Booker food stamp challenge Days 5 & 6: Burnt yams

December 10th

NEWARK — He’s burned a sweet potato, and with supplies running low, he has openly debated making a meal out of mayonnaise and salsa.

Entering the sixth day of his SNAP challenge to live on the equivalent of a week’s worth of food stamps, Newark Mayor Cory Booker was hitting some roadblocks, today, but he was still holding strong in his mission to raise awareness for the 850,000 New Jerseyans who struggle to survive on food stamps.

On Sunday morning, Booker choked down the blackened sweet potato for his first meal of the day, a brunch that one of his Twitter followers mockingly referred to as "singed with flavor." While the Mayor had some fun with the situation, he acknowledged the burnt-crisp meal was likely a regular hurdle for those who live on food stamps and don’t have the option of making another meal.

"This is hard. But what has me profoundly humbled is that this is a week - just a week - and then I’m done and can (and will) throw out burned food," he wrote in the daily blog on LinkedIn where he’s been documenting the challenge. "But millions of Americans are living with food insecurity, with worry and concern about affording food - healthy, decent food for their families and children."

Booker had a can of black beans and a far-less-incinerated sweet potato for lunch on Sunday afternoon, and said he planned to go through his sixth day of canned vegetables, beans and yams today, according to the blog. He’s also still struggling with a lack of coffee, and admitted he’s been grumpy lately to Twitter user who accused him of "lecturing" him this morning.

So what if the Mayor runs out of food before today Well there’s always mayo, he said in a video blog.

"If I run out of money at the end of the week, I can just mix some salsa, mustard and mayo together," he said. "Have a really nice soup."

With Congress still considering $16 billion in cuts to the federal food stamp program, Booker said he hopes the challenge highlights the need to protect the funds that stave off hunger for millions of Americans each day.

"The SNAP program is at great risk for budget cuts as Washington pares federal spending to avert a year-end fiscal crisis," Booker wrote in his most recent blog. "These cuts to SNAP funding could mean millions of more Americans - families with children, families with elderly and veterans - will live with less food, less options, and less hope."

G.O.P. Freshmen Saddened by Failure to Shut Down Government on First Day

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Just hours after being sworn in at the U.S. Capitol, the freshman class of House Republicans said that they were disappointed that they failed to shut down the government on their first day in office.

“We were all like,‘O.K., we’re sworn in, let’s shut this thing down,’” said freshman Rep. Byron Ernie (R-Kentucky).“We were all pretty bummed that the government just kept running.”

Rep. Ernie acknowledged that it might have been “overly optimistic” of the freshman Republicans to expect to engineer a government shutdown on their very first day,“but bringing the government to a random standstill was the whole reason we became Republicans,” he said

Surveying the cherubic faces of the incoming Republicans, he said,“They’re like kids who want to close down a candy store.”

Many "red states" have larger-than-average black and Native American populations.
Your comments are racist and offensive.
so what those states should do is to turn around some of the free cash they get for having all of those folks and their more numerous white compatriots on the dole, and send it right back to DC.

non-defict spending. you should love it.

Food Stamp Booker? He gained 30 lbs. Surveillance cameras spotted him at strip clubs and porn shows, all financed by public funds, not yours mind you, tax payer's.
You seem outraged at the relief holdup but dismissive of the pork attached to it. I should think a compassionate person, such as yourself, would have more to say about the shameless exploitation of a crisis.
Liar.(about Mayor Booker)

I will concur that I am not aware of all that was in the bill; which is another issue altogether. Let's have clean bills without sneaking other stuff in them.
The amount that was released went to flood insurance companies? I'm not sure I understand that. Why not just directly help the people instead of insurance companies?

SNAP fraud, waste, and abuse....!
'According to the Department, improper payments for these programs in FY 2009 cost taxpayers nearly $2.2 billion for SNAP...'
SNAP has one of the most rigorous quality control systems of any public benefit program, and despite the recent growth in caseloads, the share of total SNAP payments that represent overpayments, underpayments, or payments to ineligible households reached a record low in fiscal year 2011.

i may have cherry picked that one. you better check.

Scumbag muslim murderer Major. Hassan hasn't even been tried, Loughner lounges in some comfy nut house. Liberals are all talk.
Well, I'm a liberal and had hoped that the police would have shot him dead on the spot. Be careful with your labels, they don't fit everyone. Same with Hassan, should have been shot dead. Save the time and trouble of a trial not to mention the stress on the victims and their families.
