Rhonda Storms, is a republican state senator, who believes that "unhealthy" foods should not be covered by food stamps.

That sense of unfairness, plus a concern about the health of needy children, is the motivation behind a bill Storms sponsored that would prohibit people from purchasing "nonstaple, unhealthy foods" with funds provided by the federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP. Unhealthy foods in her mind are cookies, soda and potato chips.

The Government has no business telling people what they can eat especially people who are in need of government assistance in this dreadful economy.
