Congressman to Live on Food Stamp Budget
FOX 47 News
How far can you stretch food stamps?
A Congressman from Michigan is going to find out. Democrat Dan Kildee of Genesee County is going to live on the average food stamp budget for a week -- that comes out to $4.50 a day.
He wants to show how badly cuts proposed by House Republicans would hurt 47 and-a-half million Americans.
Republicans argue it's time to cut back on food stamp spending because the economy is getting stronger.
