The Federal Government Robbed 19 Million Meals From Senior Citizens

As the sequester kicks in today, poor US seniors will lose 19 million meals.

Across-the-board budget cuts scheduled to kick in today will eliminate 19 million meals for low-income seniors, according to the Meals on Wheels Association of America. In other words, the federal government’s incompetence will come at the cost of senior citizens nutritional wellbeing.

The immediate cuts to Meals on Wheels adds to a long list of programs helping the poor that will get squeezed by the sequester, including public rent assistance, emergency housing and farm loans.
