Food Stamps - The Black Hole You Enter and Never Exit

Based on song "Hotel California" about going on Food Stamps and other Welfare... "You can check in any time you want, but you will never leave."

Have you heard the rumor that the number of food stamp recipients has increased during President Obama’s term from 28.2 million to 46.6 million? Have you heard that in only three years, the annual cost of the program, which was already astronomical at $35 billion, has soared to $76 billion? It certainly has been the talk of the town (if not the campaign), but does anyone really know how we got to this state of affairs? That is what I set out to discover.

Even the most basic details about the program seem surreal. Why in the world is this...
