    Rhode Island-Food Stamps-17% of the state population-State population is declining by 3 people every day-People flee for a better life


    Rhode Island has several cities that have now filed for bankruptcy. The people are in lines to collect food stamps. The gain over the past month was .9% one of the nation's highest rates. The yearly gain of 5.5% remains a leader in the nation for people wanting food stamps. The handout is important for many with 178,630 now on food stamps. Many are wanting more federal handouts and are reluctant to become self sufficient with means of work. The census bureau is reporting that many people are leaving the state---population has declined by over 2,000 in the past two years. Birth still out number deaths but the out movement away from the state eclipses the birth rate. People want a better life; and they believe that they can find it elsewhere.

    Sentiment: Hold
