Angelica Hernandez (left) and her mother, Gloria Nunez, struggle to make ends meet on a very limited budget.
This is just too precious after my post on the poor yesterday where I said, "Our poor are fat, they are coddled and they have too much free time. No more. I will make being poor in America so miserable that no sane person would long accept living here anymore."
NPR aired a sad piece on the Nunez family in Ohio who can no longer afford meat.
It's a good thing they're a radio channel.
Gloria Nunez has never worked. She says that since her car broke down (imagine that?) her daughter can't look for a job either.
And, they're scrimping on food:
The rising cost of food means their money gets them about a third fewer bags of groceries — $100 used to buy about 12 bags of groceries, but now it's more like seven or eight.
They could probably do just fine with a few bags less of groceries, but that's just me.
A little walking probably wouldn't hurt either.
Looks like they've been "scrimping" 24/7 for their entire lives, to me. These are the people that Scott Martin will be soaking when he's President. The woman on the right has never worked. Think about that. Just sick.
