Solution: convince all the hungry SNAPers that politicians taste like chicken.
The end result ranges from slower infant development, increased child illness, lower graduation rates, fewer students entering college and more Connecticut residents in low-paying jobs.

I can't think that if a hungry SNAPer had a good-paying job he'd go out and get a lower-paying one just because he was hungry...
