    WASHINGTON (AP) -- The House took up a bill on Wednesday that funds a 14 percent increase for food stamps as more people become eligible for the program because of rising unemployment.

    The legislation provides $3 billion for the Food and Drug Administration, a 14 percent increase. International food assistance also would get a boost, with increases for emergency humanitarian food needs and aid for poor children around the world.

    US politicians now realize Stimulus hasn't
    worked for the US economy or the rest of the world.
    US jobs are gone for good. Food Stamps is the change Obama really wanted
    anyhow. Redistribution of wealth so to speak.

    Politicians will now siphon more money from the US middle class to pay for his economic policies.

    Obama started smiling once he heard the good news. It's called CHANGE! :)

    We need a funding increase because the way I see it, we will all be on food stamps by December :)
