Encouraging the dole

News that our nanny government wants even more people on the public dole.
Over the last three years, the number of Americans on food stamps has skyrocketed by two-thirds and stands at a record-high 46 million citizens, or one out of every seven people in the United States. Despite the historic rise in food stamp use, however, the Obama Administration believes not enough people are receiving food stamps who should be and is offering $75,000 grants to groups who devise “effective strategies” to “increase program participation” among those who have yet to sign up.
So, lets' get this straight.  Our government, which can't pay it's bills without borrowing even more and more money, is paying groups to find even more people to put into subsidized programs.  Rather than encouraging the citizenry to be productive members of society, it wants to put more and more of the population into dependency on Washington.  With the resultant election behavior of rewarding their benefactors.
