Government Bailout

I was reading MorningNewsBeat and saw Kevin’s blurb on the Washington Post report that the number of Food Stamp users is poised to set a record, surpassing 30 million. We (as in the government on behalf of taxpayers) have recently doled out industry bailouts to the tune of $5 trillion+. A commonly heard personal refrain is “Where’s my bailout?”… If you look hard enough, it’s probably already out there waiting for you. You probably already qualify for some kind of government remuneration. If auto industry execs can head to Congress with at in hand to ask for billions and billions, while flying their private corporate jet to the begging, why can’t you spend a little time with Google to see what you qualify for. You’d probably be surprised.
