    Costco should accept food stamps -- Queens NY councilman

    A Queens councilman, Eric Gloia, is waging a battle against Costco because the warehouse club stores don't accept food stamps.

    He also says the $50 membership fee is a bar to entry by low income folks and wants it abolished.

    The justification (if you can call it that) for this line of reasoning is that more affluent people shop at Costco rather than neighborhood stores, and this is (supposedly) driving those stores out of business just when poor folks need them most.

    Would love to hear your comments.
