Inflation has gotten so bad that members of the American military are struggling to afford basic items like food.
In response, military leaders are telling soldiers to get on food stamps.
At the same time, the U.S. government is sending billions of dollars to Ukraine. What is wrong with this picture?

‘Disgraceful’: Army Tells Soldiers to Fight Inflation with Food Stamps
The Army’s top senior enlisted leader, Sergeant Major of the Army Michael Grinston, is encouraging soldiers to apply for food stamps, among other measures, as they face difficulties fighting inflation under the Biden administration.
“With inflation affecting everything from gas prices to groceries to rent, some Soldiers and their families are finding it harder to get by on the budgets they’ve set and used before. Soldiers of all ranks can seek guidance, assistance, and advice through the Army’s Financial Readiness Program,” Grinston said in a message to soldiers posted on Army websites at least since last month.
In the message in which he advises soldiers on where they and their families can seek financial help, he wrote, “SNAP is a U.S. government program that provides benefits to eligible low-income individuals and families via an electronic benefits transfer card that can be used like a debit card to purchase eligible food in authorized retail food stores. Service members and their families may be eligible.”
The U.S. is facing historic levels of inflation not seen since the 1980s. The cost of food is up by 13.5 percent, despite the Biden administration celebrating the so-called “Inflation Reduction Act” this week.
This is beyond disgraceful.
I bet Ukraine’s army isn’t on food stamps. https://t.co/EJzYNqYeEQ

This should infuriate every single American.
Soldiers need food stamps while Ukraine and illegals get untold billions.
Let that sink in.

It’s just one more potential reason to impeach Biden.
