usda eliminates hunger

by fritzg · No Comments ·

Earlier this month, before the election, Democrats accused the Bush administration of playing politics with the Agriculture Department’s report on the status of hunger in the United States by delaying its release until after the election. The recent history is that the report is released in October about two-thirds of the time and in November the other third.

Well, a week before Thanksgiving, the report was finally released. And guess what? Hunger does not exist in America anymore. Only “very low food security”.

The USDA and the Bush Administration may have eliminated the word “hunger” from their vocabulary, but there are still many hungry people in the USA.
