Democratic Representative from Florida Frederica Wilson railed against the food stamp omission and claimed that some of her constituents must eat dog food when their food stamps run out.
Further, CNS News reported,
“Today, July 15, at a Bravo Supermarket in Miramar, Florida, for example, a can of Alpo Prime Cuts dog food is on sale for 89 cents. Conversely, Bravo Brand vegetables are on sale for 68 cents a can; 16 oz. packages of Goya pasta are 78 cents; and bananas are 33 cents a pound.Perhaps these alleged constituents should put down the Alpo and hit up Sam’s Club.
Looking at wholesale prices at a Sam’s Club in Miramar, Florida, a 24-pack of 13.2 oz. Alpo Prime Cuts dog food is $14.98 and Pedigree Choice Cuts dog food is $16.60. At the same Sam’s Club, an 8-pack of 15 oz. cans of peas and corn is $5.88.”
Of course CNS is just being silly there. Sam's requires ID.
