The real problem is that people do not know how to handle the money in their pocket. As Bill Clinton said, the government could give you more, but "you'd probably waste it". No, the solution is for government to have more say in how money is spent. Specifically on food. Government control would cut our grocery bills, and help us to be healthier and less obese. Yay!
That's the ticket. Let's keep the focus on the silly consumer who spends too much!! Bad consumer! Bad! Bad! Bad!
She could have made this whole point without ever bringing up her grocery bill and we all would have said, "She's right. Obama is killing the U.S."
0bama’s policies ARE a serious problem. But you are not going to get much sympathy that someone has “cut back” to spending $1,000 per month at the grocery store for a family of 3, even if it includes all of the non-food incidentals. Using this example takes any credibility away from the point of the article.
We have 3 adults in our household, rarely eat out even lunches, and we do not spend more than $500 in a bad month at the grocery store. IMHO it is not a good article to condemn 0bama’s policies and the inflation, which is very REAL, that we are enduring.
