    A profile of food stamp recipients: Grim

    A profile of food stamp recipients: Grim - UPI.com

    I think some of the stats will suprise a few people

    The U.S. Department of Agriculture said Monday that seven of 10 food stamp recipients had no income in 2010.
    For the year, 19 million households relied on food stamps for at least part of the year. A total of 40 million people used food stamps during the year.


    Of those who received food stamps, 35.7 percent were white, while 22 percent were African American and 10 percent were Hispanic.
    The vast majority, 94 percent, were U.S.-born citizens, the newspaper said.

    With the claims of illegal immigrants abusing US social sercives I am suprised that the vast majority of people on food stamps were/are US born citizens

    Probably because illegal immigrants tend to avoid drawing the attention of government entities as much as possible.
    6% were not US citizens. Presumably some of them were legal immigrants. Probably most of them.

    I have a really, really bad feeling about the fate of many people in the next few years.

    I find it humorous anyone would take Obama's Dept of Agriculture study as anything but propaganda. How the heck would they truly know who is legal or illegal?

    In terms of validity as a source:

    Department of Agriculture > Friend of friend that lives in rent trailer that says illegals living next door are on food stamps.

    Department of Agriculture > Talk radio caller that says his sister had her house roofed, and all those illegals that did the work were on food stamps.
