    Cat food is more expensive than people food.

    Is she serious or is that all a joke?

    Here's the real skinny on MY situation: I've got a wife and 3 stepkids. I live in Hawaii, one of the most expensive states to live in. Over the last 5 years since I've been married, our standard of living has raised tremendously. We're now able to afford 2 new-ish vehicles, a house, tutoring for my stepson(has learning issues) and 2...count them....2 college frickin tuitions. That's right, both my stepdaughters are already in college. Try putting twins through school if you want to feel some economic crunch in your pocketbook.

    And this woman claims it's "either healthcare or food"? Is she smoking crack? If I, a high school graduate can afford to take care of a ready-made family, put 2 kids through college & STILL manage to contribute to my Roth IRA, TSP & savings while having heath coverage & food in the fridge....her family is doing something wrong.

    News flash lady: GWB didn't stop you from furthering your education or looking for a better paying job. Maybe it should be internet vs. food, not healthcare vs. food. Left wing idiocy strikes again. Cry me a river sweetheart.

    Even the Dry cat food.

    You can buy a whole lot of potatoes and beans etc for the price of a bag of cat food.

    Pet food ain't cheap. Our dog is on a super-premium kibble, our cat is on a veterinary diet kibble and super-premium, holistic canned food. DH and I frequently joke that the pets eat better food than we do!

    We found that our food budget went up substantially when we started doing Dream Dinners. I love the convenience, but it's foolish to spend so much money on a food prep place. I got the cookbook and can do it at home for less money.

    But cat food is much tastier than regular food. Price is a secondary consideration.

    I understand her complaints and her unhappiness but how in the world is her inability to support her family George Bush's fault?

    I guess it's easier to blame someone else for your problems rather than look inwardly.

    Who stays at a job that you're not able to earn a raise at for four years?
