How Liberals Argue: Food Stamps Stimulate the Economy

Gentle Readers, Most Food Stamp recipients are children, the disabled, or the infirm elderly. There are some who are able-bodied adults, who, sorry to say, have never worked a single day in their life, and there is some fraud, but overall, the program recipients are the intended beneficiaries. The question we could ask is this: If spending on Food Stamps is an ' economic stimulus ', then why not spend money on Defense? Wouldn't Defense Spending do the same? Democrats demand Defense Cuts and increased Welfare claiming increased Welfare is a ' stimulus '. This is a contradictory position. Sincerely, John Lepant Brighton CO

Please provide your souce. 47,000,000 on food stamps does not seem to me to align with your comment.

Every Thursday morning I go on the Jon Justice show in Southern Arizona. Today, I made a comment about the glorification of food stamps and apparently that sparked a deluge of calls like the one below in which the caller argues welfare stimulates the economy.

Considering Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi thinks the same way, I'm not surprised.

"It's the biggest bang for the buck."
