New Food Stamp Record

44.2 million people are now part of the food stamp program.  The combination of this program with 99 weeks of unemployment checks and the ability of Americans to live in their home for years payment free before foreclosure has kept the fabric of our society together so far.

ABC news is reporting that Congress is planning on making deep cuts to this program due to its explosive growth.

Please see Spanish Riots for a reminder of what happens when a bankrupt country has its entitlement spending removed.
