My mother and her friend were on the phone. As soon as my mother hung up Iheard what her friend said.
Her friend (obviously a Fox News watcher) Do you know why we pay so much in groceries?
My mother: No.
Her friend: Food stamps. Groceries can charge more knowing people will pay with food stamps.
My mother: Never thought of it.
Now my mother thinks her friend has a point. I said that make no sense. That there are many variables that go into food prices and I doubt food stamps is even remotely a factor.
Is this a new right wing attack on food stamp receivers? Blaming them for cost of food.
I never heard this before. I assume its new. It comes across as something Drunk Uncle would say. Except neither drink.
