THE REGULATOR-IN-CHIEF:

Trump pitches plan to replace food stamps with food boxes (HELENA BOTTEMILLER EVICH, 02/12/2018, Politico)

The Trump administration is proposing to save billions in the coming years by giving low-income families a box of government-picked, nonperishable foods every month instead of food stamps. [...]

The proposal, buried in the White House's fiscal 2019 budget, would replace about half of the money most families receive via the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, also known as food stamps, with what the Department of Agriculture is calling "America's Harvest Box." That package would be made up of "100 percent U.S. grown and produced food" and would include items like shelf-stable milk, peanut butter, canned fruits and meats, and cereal.

We're agnostic on the idea, but glory in the thought of the Right's reaction if Michelle proposed doing shopping for Americans.
