Rancho Mirage Ca they have a program funded by the state–this is food delivered to low income people in the city above 60yrs and vulnerable to the virus-----about 200 people are getting this service—three meals a day delivered from some very upscale restaurants----but here is the thing-----in Rancho Mirage low income is under $70,000----I don’t think anyone could live there under $30,000—

Republican politicians: The finest civil servants to walk this great land.

15% increase is not enough when stores are raising their prices by a lot more. Example: local store charges $9+ for a gallon of OJ while 32 miles away same OJ is selling for $6+.

About $160 for each american if 100 million need food assistance. August first, we may witness senate refuse to extend assistance to families.

And still win in November. Imagine that.

Food stamp money buying power is going down while food prices are going up. Stop foreign aid, make it American aid first. Stop free handouts; esp. to those coming across the Mexican border, then they won’t come over.
