    Once again, Trump is doing the right thing!

    Getting actual food to the people that really need it and reducing the opportunity for fraud and theft in one fell swoop.

    Progressives will, of course, complain about this and find fault

    Why do our friends on the left want poor people to go hungry?

    Did you know that government waste and fraud was $400 billion just in 2016 alone?

    So, tell us again, why inventing a whole new bureaucracy for handling the massive logistics for this, represent a cost savings?

    The USDA got out of the Gubmint Cheese and Peanut Butter bidness ages ago... with good reason.

    Have you even bothered to consider the logistics in doing something like this? Home delivery of food baskets? Who's gonna deliver them, and how often?

    I always said it should go back to the commodities like years ago....rice, beans, cheese, butter, canned meat, honey, etc.

    And resurrect a long-dead bureaucracy and logistics arm of the Gubmint...

    Purchasing, Transportation, Storage, Quality Control, Delivery, Enforcement, etc...

    No... I think not...

    Try again.

    My grandparents got monthly commodities when at home during the depression...you either picked it up at a local location or they delivered it if need be.
