This translates to 17,194,000 individuals. That's from The Poverty Newsblog. Today McClatchy reports that:In 2000 the average number of households each month on food stamps was 52,785.
In June[2008, ed.], the figure was 28.6 million, according to the government.
So, since that asshole compassionate conservative Bu$hCo illegally entered the Office of the Presidency, 11,406,000 more people became eligible for food stamps. Now there is another huge item for the spoiled brat's legacy. Of course, I'm sure he eats cedar stew down on his ranch.
