Washington Post:
Governor’s threat could end food stamps in Maine: Recipients on ‘a steady diet of Mars Bars and Mountain Dew’

Gov. Paul LePage had wanted to bar Maine residents from using food stamps to buy unhealthy food. When federal officials rejected his proposal to institute such a rule statewide, LePage reacted angrily.
Here is an idea.  Limit food stamp purchases to the same things Michelle Obama permits on the school lunch program.  That would be some political jujitsu that would put the bureaucrats in a bind.
