I wonder why the media has not covered this? ?It's from the government not some wacko website

Think about what you just said for a minute. ¿You're surprised the media - The guys who got Obama elected - won't report a misuse of government money.

clearly you realize there's some thing wrong here? Either a typing error or as noted afore more to it.

Ummm...perhaps you should delve into the details a little more closely before you post something like this. The $1.191 million figure cited was for 760,000 pounds of ham, not two. That works out to around $1.50 per pound. The "two pounds" refers to the size of the packaging, and the food was purchased for food banks and soup kitchens...

Just goes to show people believe what they wish and twist the truth to serve their ends.

Good Job!

Just goes to show the government can't create a clear website and that they still paid too much.

Glad to see it addressed.

Where is the truth twisted? ¿The page is unclear at best. It's their website, nothing twisted at all.

Maybe you should also read the details

"But there's a problem with that, too -- the comparison is apples to oranges. Or, in this case, unsliced ham, the kind you might serve at Thanksgiving or Easter, to sliced deli ham, which always tends to be more expensive."

it's not bulk ham, it's sliced.

Also, it's perfectly clear, it says it paid that sum for '2 pound sliced ham', just as it shall list that it paid that sum for 'tennis balls' and not '1 000 000 tennis balls' or some thing. It always lists the product, the quantity of it is listed at another point. The product just has a '2' in it.
