Food Stamps At Record High in February

For those who still believe we are in a recovery, which by the way is supposed to be very strong — I'll publish more proof of the "recovery" soon.
(Bloomberg) The number of Americans receiving food stamps rose to a record 44.199 million in February, up from 44.188 million in the previous month, the government said.

Recipients of Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program subsidies for food purchases jumped 12 percent from a year earlier, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said today in a statement on its website. Participation has set records every month since December 2008. Increases have slowed in recent months as unemployment levels declined.
