Newark, N.J., Mayor Cory Booker plans to live off food stamps for one week. Booker’s decision came by way of a challenge after Twitter user "Twitwit" told him that "nutrition is not a responsibility of the government." 

Booker made the announcement on Twitter after an exchange with a self-described "Daughter of the American Revolution (DAR), fighting against any and all forms of socialism/communism."

Booker responded to "Twitwit" and challenged her to see if they could both live off food stamps for a week. "Lets you and I try to live on food stamps in New Jersey (high cost of living) and feed a family for a week or month. U game?"
