There is no end in sight to the glory of Hope & Change:

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — Nearly 15% of the U.S. population relied on food stamps in May, according to the United States Department of Agriculture.

The number of Americans using the government’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) — more commonly referred to as food stamps — shot to an all-time high of 45.8 million in May, the USDA reported. That’s up 12% from a year ago, and 34% higher than two years ago.

This might come as good news to the White House, because a dependency class tends to follow those who are tossing them scraps, but Obama’s approval rating is at an all time low among the poor. No worries for Obama though — they were easily misled with false promises and empty “change” rhetoric, and most will fall for it again. This time though the poor won’t be promised the moon to get them to the polls, but rather scared to death with “Republicans will take away your food stamps!”

    I don't get it.

    Americans are too fat and the gubment keeps feeding them.

    And I see commercials all the time about hunger in America.

    It's like there are people that are not quite poor enough to get food stamps who are also fat and hungry.

    San Fran Nan said that "for every dollar of unemployment money put into the economy, two dollars comes back !" (Or words to that effect)

    They`re almost saying, "Poor people create jobs" !
