Hats off to Congressperson Omar, who's introducing a bill that allows SNAP recipients to order online groceries and have them delivered.   Helping to make them safer, and help deflect unintended and potentially significant medical costs if people do end up ill from trying to get food in stores. 

 

"We shouldn't be picking and choosing which families can and cannot get to order food online," she said.

Great post as usual, Manic!  Good for the Congresswoman from Minnesota.  This will benefit many of her constituents, as well as those across this great land.

Her typical left wing thinking. Just like the New Green Deal dream.  Very Democratic thinking indeed!  Thinking about the needs of the disadvantaged, very much unlike the party of wealthy white men.  

My understand (sic) is that many that are low income families (?) do not have access to the internet...that's quite presumptious of you....but not surprising!  do you think Omar is smart enough to understand that? I think she has a far better understanding of her constituents AND the FACT that many have Bush provided cell phones that can text or call for the service.  Are Republicans smart enough to understand that?  Apparently some are not!  I say she is not.
