said once again Monday’s he’s worried about excessive spending for food stamps.
The Inspector General at USDA said there has not been an evaluation of $45 billion in food stamp spending as part of the stimulus.
“As we begin to mark-up a new farm bill, the debate should include reasonable reforms to food stamps,” Roberts’ release said. He’s proposed cutting $36 billion from food stamps over the next ten years.
Roberts’ campaign committee recently filed its first-quarter fundraising and spending report, which included the following purchases from campaign funds for meals:
Johnny’s Half Shell $649.61
La Lucia $654.05
Yard House Kansas City $160.72
Capital Grille $104
The Source Wolfgang Puck $76
Red Hot and Blue $100.75
The meals were for staff members. It isn’t clear if Roberts was among the diners.
