In response to a tweeter saying that nutrition isn't the government's responsibility

Newark Mayor Cory Booker is set to live at least a week on food stamps after he challenged a self-described Army wife and veteran to join him in the test.

Booker tweeted on Monday that investing in "schools, nutrition, etc" would save money in the long run instead of paying only for "huge back-end" government programs like prisons and police.
