Food Stamps Up 70% Since 2007

The Congressional Budget Office said Thursday that 45 million people in 2011 received Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program benefits, a 70% increase from 2007. It said the number of people receiving the benefits, commonly known as food stamps, would continue growing until 2014.

Spending for the program, not including administrative costs, rose to $72 billion in 2011, up from $30 billion four years earlier. The CBO projected that one in seven U.S. residents received food stamps last year.
More and more dependent Americans - Obama's dream.

So from 2007 to 2012, the rolls increased 70%, but the cost to the taxpayer increased 140%?
