The Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program, or SNAP – better known as food stamps – is the fastest growing federal entitlement program, and one of the most abused.
That’s according to Cato Institute scholar Michael Tanner, who just released an exhaustive report studying the issue [http://object.cato.org]. Since 2000, the program has exploded – it has grown from 17 million Americans to more than 48 million, due largely to the Obama administration’s relaxing of qualification standards – so much so that a sizable percentage of those now receiving food stamps are not “poor,” by the government’s own definition.
