Do you realize how many grocery stores will go under and more take a hit if this does come about?

You do know about the retirees all over this country and that some towns are predominately elderly now? Also it would be more expensive to ship this stuff than the system we have now. Also consideration for strict diets must be met. There are other things but ill just give you those few to consider.

More hyperbole. Highly unlikely groceries stores will go under. There will be foods that aren't included in the packages, such as perishables and personal necessities. Particular diets have many ways to be addressed, to numerous to list at this point.

While some areas may be high in retiree count, not all of them are on assistance, and there will always be non-retirees in each area.

Do you honestly believe there will be one shipping point and one only? Ship the packages by USPS? How do you think grocery stores get their groceries? Distribution points. And jobs likely created because of them.

As with the PPACA, perhaps we need to wait and see what's in it before you deride it.

Certainly, there are abuses by the upper class, too.

But--oddly--you do not address both; rather, you simply suggest that we continue to turn a blind eye.

Its pure bull ****. Most people who get fs just want to eat. Their stamps have been cut a couple of times by rs. So they supliment with food banks which are strapped and mostly go e out peanut butter-if their lucky- and rice and canned milk. The same food groups the proposal wants to file out. The food banks do it in an economic way but sending these through mail or whatever would be costly and end up with vitamin deficiencies.

Do you actually know how they will be shipped? If so, please share.

Produce, unless locally and carefully grown, has virtually none of the nutrients they should have, a combination of fast growing to get it to market, picking it early to get it to market in good cosmetic shape, and assorted chemical fertilizers and pest control, on top of waxing to maintain an extended shelf life. And you are worried about a couple of days delivery time????

As a side note, current government laws prevent grocery stores and restaurants from providing 'day old' groceries to any source. They must be disposed of in a dumpster. If that's not food waste, then I don't know what is.
