43 Million American People on Food Stamps and Rising

With a 9.8% unemployment, Americans are feeling the pinch. The media tried to paint a rosy picture that America is on a road to recovery, but that is completely false. High unemployment, a deepen recession, and food stamp recipients are the only indicators a layman need to see we are heading in the wrong direction.

(Wall Street Journal) Some 42.9 million people collected food stamps last month, up 1.2% from the prior month and 16.2% higher than the same time a year ago, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Nationwide 14% of the population relied on food stamps as of September but in some states the percentage was much higher. In Washington, D.C., Mississippi and Tennessee – the states with the largest share of citizens receiving benefits – more than a fifth of the population in each was collecting food stamps
