Somehow not discussed at the beltway cocktail parties

Funny that this:

A new report from the hunger relief charity Feeding America throws the nation’s struggle with hunger into an even starker light. The report, titled “Map the Meal Gap 2014,” broke the USDA’s data down county by county, giving a more nuanced picture of food insecurity. The report reveals that there are 16 counties in the U.S. with more than 100,000 “food insecure” children — a number you might expect to see in a developing country rather than the world’s wealthiest nation.

Is never seemingly thought of, as having any relation to this:

In the past 10 years, student debt has tripled in the United States, from $364 billion to more than $1.2 trillion. That’s more than Americans owe on credit cards or auto lines.

Elizabeth Warren would like to try to alleviate some of this unspoken correlation.

But obviously she’s not a “serious person” [i.e. wants reform that would help people], so there’s that.
