Blunt cuts medicaid, head start, and oh yeah...fresh produce!

This one didn’t get much publicity, but one of the many programs cut recently was the farmers market voucher system. The program gave senior citizens $30 vouchers to spend at farmers markets. It was an important way for poor seniors to supplement their diets with fresh, high quality food - especially in urban areas where groceries are limited and more expensive.

This seems to be getting a bit ridiculous don't you think?
