Altogether, there are now almost 46 million people in the United States on food stamps, roughly 15 percent of the population. That's an increase of 74 percent since 2007, just before the financial crisis and a deep recession led to mass job losses.

Despite the bipartisan support for the program in the past, some of the recent political rhetoric has food stamp advocates worried.

Presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich last year derided Democrats as "the party of food stamps". And Republican leaders in the House of Representatives propose changing the program so that the funding is through a "block grant" to the states, rather than allowing it to grow automatically when needed due to an emergency, such as a natural disaster or economic crisis.

We wouldn't NEED food stamps if it wasn't for Congress' inability to congregate and come up with the solutions that are needed to combat the disaster that lead us into poverty.

Most of us were NOT living in poverty before we lost our livelihood. We had houses, cars, PAYCHECKS, savings, retirement funds... Now its ALL GONE because of THEM and their greed. Are they forgetting WHY there are so many people needing food stamps to begin with????? !@#$%^&*()
