The Great Food Stamp Binge


Saturday August 10th, 2013   •   Posted by Craig Eyermann at 6:49am PDT   •  

According to a poll commissioned by Fox News, 74% of Americans think Americans rely too much on government programs for assistance, such as food stamps, and not enough on themselves.

And speaking of food stamps, the poll also indicates 57% of Americans believe that most of the people on food stamps, or rather, the federal government’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), are exploiting the system.

That 57% won’t be happy with at least one of the individuals profiled in a Fox News documentary, The Great Food Stamp Binge, which aired for the first time last night and will be rebroadcast this Sunday at 9:00 PM Eastern Time (6:00 PM Pacific). Townhall’s Greg Hengler has an excerpt from the documentary:

What a life.
