Fed Up with Food Stamp Stories

I am sick and tired of the "try living on a food stamp budget for a week/month" stories. Yes, it's nice to see that we can get by on much less than we spend, but:

Food stamps are meant to be supplemental! They are not intended to be used alone to purchase food for an individual or family.

That's why it's called the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program.
