While it is already known that personnel from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) met with Mexican embassy officials this year to discuss nutrition assistance outreach efforts to immigrants, the agency is “slow-walking” a U.S. Senate effort to obtain information about the USDA’s partnership with Mexico to get more people enrolled in nutrition assistance programs.

According to both the USDA and the Mexican embassy, USDA personnel meet “periodically” with officials from the Mexican embassy to discuss nutrition “assistance and education” pertaining to 15 domestic nutrition assistance programs, including the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), or food stamps.

The most recent meeting was in February, according to Mexican embassy spokesman Ricardo Alday.

Neither the Mexican embassy nor the USDA have revealed the content of these meetings.

    Why hasn’t anyone brought up about the cost for Medicare in 2014?
    In 2014 the cost will increase about 150% It is around 95.00 dollars per month in 2012 and will go up to about 105.00 dollars in 2013. But, in 2014 after Obama would be re-elected it will jump to over145.00 dollars per month. That is a change of about 1,200.00 dollars per year to 1,740.00 per year for single and 3,480.00 per year for married couples.
    For seniors on a fix income this is unbelievable increase in taxes.
    We must stop Obamacare – vote straight Republican

    • Really moron and the vouchers republicans want will force seniors into an even WORSE prospect. It will FREEZE their benefits and turn more money over to health insurance companies. Right now Medicare runs at about a 2% operating overhead and seniors have a fairly carte blanche option for most medical procedures. They will lose ALL that under the rethuglican plan, You are a FOOL for thinking otherwise, but I’m sure you wouldn’t understand no matter how hard soemone tried to explain it to you because you lack CRITICAL thinking skills
