Tn Grocers Assoc Tactics Are Starving Children

According to news reports, the Tennessee Grocers Association was somehow able to force changes to the Tennessee Food Stamp program this month.

Normally eligible food stamp recipients receive their benefits in the first week of every month. The OVERFED BOARD MEMBERS of the TN Grocers Ass were somehow able to pay-off state government officials to push this date as much as 40 days away from the normal date.

That means that right now, children and elderly and the sick, who depend upon this benefit to eat, are going HUNGRY.

And don't ya know many of them would call themselves 'good christians.'

Below are the names of the people responsible for this horrid action. You can go to this link to see those responsible for this atrocity. Notice that they are all white and many are quite overfed and puffy faced. No hungry faces here.

Thanks for the info.

Based upon the lack of comments it appears that no one cares much about hungry children in the state of TN. Very sad.

Nice racist post. I guess white people are responsible for all of the problems that got those people on food stamps? Funny thing is, they are also responsible for most of the taxes that get paid to provide the food stamps in the first place. Why would grocers want to inhibit food stamps, they are beneficiaries of the program? It seems as though they just want to space out the distribution so as to better manage logistics.
