    Re: Still not even close

     

    Look again genius. A great many of those states are Blue. And BTW West Virginia voted for Obama, and is far poorer than either state you mention.

      Family assistance, Military Bases, Highway construction, you name it!

      NOBODY sucks on the Federal Tit like the drooling primates who voted for Disaster Boy Bush! What's more they haven't even said thay they are sorry for the $10 Trillion screwjob they created voting for the drunk-driving pindick coward too?

      Collecting their Food Stamps in the very same Mailbox that the Crop Subsidy checks arrive at is now a lifetime goal for all these Fox News Ret@ds!

    • Five minutes ago you were saying that none of the unproductive white trash he!!hole states collected any welfare at all?

      So tell us all about how unemployment must have gone up 300 percent in Idaho, (because Food Stamp Usage sure did since 2009 you sub-human rube!)

      The only kind of WELFARE that unproductive Red State APES object to is the kind that they don't get to monopolize!

      **********************
      When Idaho first made the switch to single-day distribution, it wasn’t a big concern for grocers because not many Idahoans were on food stamps. In 2008, just 95,433 Idahoans received the federally funded benefit that helps low-income people pay for food. But the numbers have exploded; in fiscal year 2011, 223,730 people got food stamps in Idaho, and the projection for the current year is 237,874.

      “It has grown exponentially,” Armstrong said, as the economic downturn and unemployment forced more people to sign up – most for the first time.

      Gilliam said the Nampa, Idaho, area has been particularly hard-hit; there, people have been flocking to a local 24-hour Winco grocery store at 3 a.m. on the first of the month to fill their carts and be ready to pay when their food stamp benefits kick in at 4 a.m.

      “It’s really caused a huge bottleneck for consumers,” he said. Making matters worse, the food stamp recipients are converging on stores at the same time as many others who get paid on the first. “This causes stocking issues, inventory problems,” Gilliam said.
