Sean Hannity says poor can survive on rice and beans

And here is another bonehead bashing the poor. And this latest out of touch statement of the poor comes from Sean Hannity. "Regular guy" Hannity told a caller to his radio show:

I never went to bed hungry in my life... Most Americans haven't. ... I have friends of mine that eat rice and beans all the time. Beans - protein - rice. Inexpensive. You can make a big pot of this for a week for relatively negligible amounts of money for your whole family and feed your family. Look, you should have vegetables and fruit in there as well, but, you know, if you need to survive, you can survive off it. It's not ideal - you know, you can get some cheap meat and throw in there as well for protein. There are ways to live really, really cheaply.

According to Feeding America, a non-profit devoted to problems of hunger in this country:
Right now, millions of Americans are struggling with hunger. These are often hard-working adults, children and seniors who simply cannot make ends meet and are forced to go without food for several meals, or even days.

Sean certainly need his paycheck and assets revoked for a year and live off of rice and beans.
