Phoenix Mayor Loses 4 Pounds In One Week On 'Food Stamp Budget'

September 28th, 2012   If you’re dependent on the
government to support your weekly sustenance, the money you receive is no longer
sufficient to maintain a healthy and nutritious diet – so says Phoenix Mayor
Greg Stanton:



Last week, Stanton, a Democrat, took part in a
community challenge to live on a food stamp budget – just $4.16 to buy food per
day, or about $29 per week for one person.



Stanton said he was
barely able to meet nutritional needs and lost four pounds, according to Fox 10
News Phoenix. He skipped meals and relied on ramen noodles, pasta and coffee,
according to KTAR.



“I’m facing a long, hungry day and an even
longer night getting dinner on the table, which requires making EVERYTHING from
scratch on this budget,” Stanton wrote on Facebook. “It’s only for a week, so
I’ve got a decent attitude. If I were doing this with no end in sight, I
probably wouldn’t be so pleasant.”



Stanton concluded on Facebook
at the end of the challenge: “The best ‘program’ for any struggling family is a
job that pays a living wage.”

According to Stanton, he lost four pounds in a single week
on his $29 per week food budget:





A record number of
Americans – 46.7 million – used food stamps in the month of June, and tens of
millions more are directly in the sights of an economy spiraling uncontrollably
into collapse.



Food prices have risen 175% since they year 2000
and analysts estimate that this past summer’s drought will force them even
higher – as high as 30% by the middle of next year. On top of that we’ve got the
Federal Reserve committing some $80 billion a month in continued monetary easing
(printing). There is only one direction for food prices to go, and that’s
up.



There is no way out, despite what politicians and experts
tell us or what many Americans want to believe. This ends with millions of
Americans starving in the streets. There can be no other result. Either the
nutritional assistance programs come to a screeching halt because there is no
credit funding left for the county as a whole, or prices rise exponentially to
the point that $29 will buy maybe a gallon of milk or less.



This
is our future. You can bet on it.



And the way to ‘bet’ on it is
to stock up on essential commodities like rice, beans, wheat, dry milk, and corn
now , before things get so bad that they are no longer manageable.
