Food Stamp Nation [video]

food stamp nation

“We haven’t had a quadrupling of the number of people that are hungry in the country; that’s what the food stamp program was meant to be. What we have [is] a political ideology in power in Washington of liberalism which believes that a measure of success of government is how many people it quote-unquote ‘helps.’ Or, to look at it another way, how many people it makes dependent on its ministrations. And therefore for them this is a great success. They want to see this sort of natural American aversion to taking a handout… whittled down.”
