40 Million Americans On Food Stamps

Food stamp use hit record 40.8m in May - The Boston Globe
"The number of Americans who are receiving food stamps rose to a record 40.8 million in May as the jobless rate hovered near a 27-year high, the government reported yesterday."

Hmmm, let's see.  That's 13% of Americans on food assistance.  Wow.  It would appear to me that the current system isn't working.  Why aren't these people getting a $10 trillion bailout?
