Food stamps and welfare are what is keeping some families fed and clothed. When the unemployment ran out they used up savings if they had some. Then they dropped off the radar so to speak. Most people are only hearing about the gov unemployment figures. When that runs out most gov agencies are not being loud and clear about how many people are getting some form of aid. Never mind the families who are being taken care of by relatives and friends....who's counting them ? Like Obama some people only know about their well to do friends and family.

Nope, but have you been lately on the 1st or 2nd of the month?
Looked at all of the garbage food loaded in the cart that is paid for with an EBT card? God forbid we make them actually use an identifiable FOOD STAMP like of old.
PAcks of single size chips etc. Meat more expensive than I would buy.
Bring back standing in a line for a loaf of bread and bag of rice! If you want to scrounge from the taxpayers it should be public!

I might add..........we are sure feeding more people with taxpayer money of course since we have a lot more people in this country than back then.

You know, it's all subjective.
My Mom & Dad lived through "The Depression."
They had jobs, but no food.
There wasn't any.
Meat was all but impossible to get.
(as they told it)
Today our poor who are suffering and on subsistance have;
Cable TV, smart phones, high speed internet and dress pretty damned well.
Maybe just time to "CUT SPENDING!!"
At least around here that is what I see.
If anyone here is "starving," please let me know, I have a freezer full of venison, I will give you some.

Did you really think a change in the Presidency would halt the slide immediately no matter who won the election????????????????? The Bush administration increased spending the last 2 years he was in office, and never included the cost of the 2 wars into the budget. did you expect Obama to come in and cut out all the programs Bush put into motion????????????? Get real.
