    Santorum: We Don't Need Food Stamps Because Obesity Rates Are So High | ThinkProgress

    He doesn't get it and never will. Fact is, if you don't have much money for food but you DO have some mouths to feed, you will choose the biggest bang for your buck. IOW, its expensive to eat well but very cheap to eat poorly.

    The very poor eat shit like McDonald's because they don't have enough money to buy fresh produce and whole foods.

    DUH.

    Meanwhile, he ignore his very sick daughter in favor of his losing "race" for the White House. This man is just plain vile, a one man hate group.

    Well except that's not actually true. If you shop right, you can probably buy for a week at a grocery for what you can buy for a day at McDonalds and probably healthier. The simple fact is, these people are too lazy to do the research it takes to figure that out.

    Well let's see TS, Santorum has earned a MBA as well as a JD (and he didn't even have to use affirmative action or his alumni daddy). Mind telling us about your resume or what qualifies you to call him dumb?

    btw start more threads

    This is idiocy given the fact food stamps are used as a nutritional supplement mostly by the working poor, having nothing to do with the type of food purchased or the amount consumed. Indeed, for many low income working families, food stamps ensure basic nutritional levels are met, particularly for children.

    Santorum’s ignorance is exceeded only by his hate.

    Santorum gives stumps a bad name. Apparently he'll be the only one debating Newt at Trump's debate. That should be real interesting...

    I think he is VERY sound and capable. I just wish I liked him. His tone is sharp and he makes me anxious, when I listen to him, so I have quit. Mute!
