There were a couple of "grocery" stores in Minneapolis and St Paul last year busted for giving out 50% of the foodstamps value in cash to the "customers".

NYC Mayor Mike Bloomberg: The Best Thing To Happen To Republicans Since Citizens United
After losing two back-to-back national elections, there is nearly complete disarray in the party. Rejected twice after running national campaigns focused on the issue which voters said they cared most about – an issue which, in the abstract, should have been in their wheelhouse – political and opinion leaders are recommending sweeping reforms to ensure past mistakes will never be made again. This is the Republican Party in 2013, but it was also the Democratic Party of 40 years ago. In the early 1970s, after losing two straight presidential elections, Democrats pursued a series of reforms dedicated to reducing the likelihood that the party would nominate unelectable candidates. Today, the lessons Democrats learned from those elections are being forgotten and New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg is funding the effort.

Bloomberg’s activism is the best thing to happen to Republicans since the Supreme Court’s ruling in Citizens United for three reasons. First, and most obviously, Bloomberg’s unashamed efforts to ban or curtail those pleasures his unelected bureaucrats deem harmful is unvarnished progressivism’s oldest and most distasteful impulse.

Second, Bloomberg is the physical embodiment of the hypocrisy the Democratic Party and the media display on campaign finance reform issues. Combined with the news that the liberal Tides Foundation had contributed five times more to elect Democratic candidates to office in 2012 than the oft-maligned libertarian Koch Brothers contributed to Republicans, Bloomberg’s financial contributions to liberal candidates demonstrates that progressives and the media establishment are only concerned about campaign finance issues when Democratic candidates are endanger of losing elections.

Finally, from a Republican’s perspective, Bloomberg is also having a much more beneficial effect on the political landscape than any reform the GOP could institute on its own. Bloomberg is singlehandedly helping the Democratic Party unlearn the lessons which led to the 1974 campaign reforms.

Empowered by the public desire for major reforms in the wake of the Watergate Scandal, the 1974 amendments to the 1971 Federal Election Campaign Act were embraced by Democratic lawmakers because, in concert with the primary election reforms recommended by the McGovern-Fraser Commission, the disclosure requirements now mandated by law would make it far more difficult for a handful of donors to bankroll candidates unrepresentative of the broader electorate.

Today, Bloomberg is actively fomenting a liberal, issue-oriented insurgency from within the Democratic Party. Undeterred by Sen. Harry Reid’s (D-NV) efforts to shield his vulnerable members from a damaging vote, Bloomberg leads a coalition of progressive voters forcing the party’s officials to the left of the electorate.

a mother should buy her children or which is cheaper 2% or whole !
What if I were to tell you that 58% of all beverages purchased under SNAP are "sugary beverages"? This isn't about the type or brand of milk (all types are the same price a Cub); it is people buying pop instead of milk.

Eating habits are hard to break,but I doubt that michelle Obama would be looking or monitoring what some senior or young mother
would outlaw what a person buyys with food stamps.

She has done exactly that with school lunches, why would she not care about what parents on SNAP are buying for their kids?

Water, OJ, Milk, ect; it doesn't matter, those all make up only 42% of the beverages purchased under SNAP.

Why would you think unhealthy eating is especially in "red southern states"? Also she specifically target one partially federal funded program (student lunches), why would she not want a fully federal funded program to be treated the same?

Kooky, the same folks that argue Obamacare will ultimately reduce and control costs want to provide people on government healthcare access to unhealthy food on the taxpayers' dime so they can ultimately spend even more on government healthcare.

I guess if you are busy establishing a permanent underclass to keep yourself in power, you have to be willing to break a few eggs.

Cross reference that article you read with poverty levels and food stamp recipients. MS and AL are some of the most obese states in the country, but also some of the poorest states in the country. Notice how poverty and bad food go together. If you ran an obesity by income level graph, it would likely correlate with the income and smoking percentage graph.

While you are berating others about their spelling abilities, you may want to look up "reorganize". I am sure you could be dumber, but not so sure you could have less class. I think the classification "loser" would be quite a step up for you.
