If you really do need foodstamps or any other social service, then by all means take it, and don't be ashamed of it. If you were ever a part of the workforce, you paid for it and then some. The problem arises when people who could be working and supporting themselves decide to depend on the governement when they don't need to.

My mom is a widow who was a housewife most of her life, so she lives off of my dad's social security check. The powers that be (I don't even know who they are to be honest) continually try to get her to sign up for foodstamps in addition to the ss benefit she already receives, although she really doesn't need them. Several other older folks, espescially church members seem to be targeted.

Supermarkets are happy with the increase-more money out there to buy their goods. Farmers are happy with the increase, too---more supermarkets will buy their goods, and the price doesn't matter. Agribusiness probably has lobbyists in DC to best massage this news--that is why it was released "quietly." And good luck in finding the news item in any newspaper or even on the internet.

Remember, more people on government aide, more Union workers have to administrate the program, a win win for the administration.

NGO Poverty Plutocrats must be rejoicing. I can only conclude that the gov't *wants* more people on Food Stamps (or more accurately, SNAP EBT Cards), for grant money is available to NGOs for convincing more “poor” people of their eligibility:
www.fns.usda.gov/snap/outreach/grants.htm

BTW, your friends at Rome (or at least, their Baltimore branch) are all for it, like many counterfeit “Protestants”:
