Food Stamp Spending Has More Than Doubled Since 2008

Food Stamp Spending Has More Than Doubled Since 2008

In 2008, taxpayers spent $38 billion on food stamps.  In 2013, that figure will be $82 billion.

Since 2007, the number of Americans on food stamps has skyrocketed 70 percent to 45 million people–or one out of every seven people living in America.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the U.S. is experiencing a “food stamp crime wave,” as the program is now rife with fraud, abuse, and waste.

As Rev. Jesse Jackson has stated, President Barack Obama should consider it “an honor to be a food stamp president.”
