TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! CRITICS ARGUE WITH CONGRESSMAN CLEAVER'S FED SEQUESTER TALK TODAY AT CITY HALL!!!
Just now Congressman Cleaver addressed the Mayor and City Council during the biz session . . .
He briefed our elected officials regarding the Fed Sequester and basically everybody in the room complained that City Hall and government both big and small more cash.
Talk drifted toward the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and the Farm Bill . . .
As always, Congressman Cleaver was good for a money line . . .
"You can't use SNAP to buy a Lexus . . ." was my fave.
However . . . Insiders note that SNAP/EBT program abuses are rampant and connection to the Farm Bill was more politics than substance . . .
A KC Insider says: "You can't buy a Lexus with SNAP but you can buy sushi and lobster and a great many other things that most working people can't afford."
