I would love to see a platform comparison on food stamp recipient's. How bout it Yardley, you seem to be able to find every other statistic? Oh wait, the government probably doesnt want you to see that. I would bet good money on the fact that is grossly democratic registration. SHOCKER!
That way the comparison is someone who is fully on the taxpayer dime vs what a taxpayer budgets for food.
It shows that those whom we are suporting can spend a lot more money than is required to eat decent meals.
Additionally, if those people have kids in school, they would be getting free lunches for the kids, something the taxpayer has to factor into their food budget.
This doesn't even include WIC benefits.

My biggest problem with the democratic party is their willingness to grow the entitlement mentality that develops among welfare recipients. The base idea of growing government to support the poor IS socialism. The republicans have their fair share of issues, but supporting the socialistic cause of the democrats is something I just cant bring myself to do.
