Gov. Kasich waives food stamp time limit for rural whites, forces urban minorities to go hungry

"As governor of Ohio, Kasich has taken advantage of those time-limit waivers himself. While hypocritical—it was his idea to limit food stamps, after all—his use of the waivers is not the problem.

The problem is how his administration distributes them. According to Mother Jones:
