Speaking of mayhem! NY1’s NY1: Top Story about Queens Councilman Eric Gioia trying to live on food stamps really exposes the chaotic way our welfare-related policies are structured. The story basically says that Gioia couldn’t live on the $28 worth of food stamps, which is the average amount alloted (although it doesn’t say where this average is for, I would hope NYC is different than Kansas).

While this is a blog about food and not politics, I won’t go on for too long, but personally I think the entire program needs to be re-worked. It’s not too late to go back to the drawing board.
