Members of Congress are living off food stamps for a week to protest Republican cuts. It’s a challenge for them, but GOP cuts would hurt millions of everyday Americans

Why does this not have more publicity. This needs it!

I want a reality tv show where politicians have to live in poverty for a month. They have to live in Government housing, shop with food stamps, and get only a limited amount of money for clothes. Because here, they still have all their trappings, lilke nice cars and thousand dollar suits. I want them in Walmart jeans trying to determine if they can afford a carton of milk. 

If we had that, just watch how quickly things would change

No.
Give them nothing but minimum wage.
Because it’s ‘obviously' enough to live on.

But don’t let them go back after a week/month.. Tell them to rise up and make something of themselves living on government assistance and minimum wage ….
