    Food stamp list soars past 35 million: USDA | U.S. | Reuters

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - More than 35 million Americans received food stamps in June, up 22 percent from June 2008 and a new record as the country continued to grapple with the worst recession since the Great Depression of the 1930s.

    The food stamp program, which helps cover the cost of groceries for one in nine Americans, has grown in step with the U.S. unemployment rate which stood at 9.4 percent in July.

    So, what is the Republican answer? Let them eat "cake"?

    Funny, I saw this "actor" on Glenn Beck. He was telling Glenn that even when he was down, he didn't rely on anyone else. He helped himself and worked hard and dug himself out of a terrible hole. Even when he was living on welfare and food stamps, he didn't get help from anyone. He did it all on his own.
