    Faux News would have you believe that little kids on food stamps are costing the taxpayer a fortune. The fact is that an average taxpayer making$50,000 per year will pay $6. General welfare will cost him/her another $36.

    The link tells us what that same taxpayer is contributing to corporate welfare. It's a whole lot more than $42. It's too bad that people can't be corporations, isn't it.

    The right wing has done a tremendous job of misinforming the general public about these programs. They want us to think that the "takers" who require food assistance are just a bunch of lazy bums who won't get off their asses when in fact the vast majority of people who receive food assistance are actually full time employees who work for minimum wage.
