Several of these fights are still in the works and are caused by the Trump administration's human wave attacks on SNAP (Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program).
While musing on that subject, I ran across a couple of quotes about hunger and the cruelty and the enormous condescension people show to people who are poor.
Let's start with cruelty:
"It is fatal to look hungry. It makes people want to kick you."
Now cruelty's close relation, condescension:
“It is curious how people take it for granted that they have a right to preach at you and pray over you as soon as your income falls below a certain level.”I'm not sure which is worse.
