Feeding the 60 Million
Who will feed the 60 millions should government go belly up?

Guest:  Rachel Sheffield, Policy Analyst, DeVos Center for Religion and Civil Society at The Heritage Foundation

According to Jack Kerouac, the Naked Lunch title he suggested for a William Burrough’s novel, “means exactly what the words say: a frozen moment when everyone sees what is on the end of the fork.”

Here’s some naked lunch…

According to the USDA, one in five now receive food stamps from the federal government.   What we can all see on the end of this fork is 60 million people who now rely on a government $150 trillion (give or take) in debt for their food.

Here’s more naked lunch…

The number of people on food stamps, and the size of the federal government’s debt, are both rapidly escalating.  In fact, the number of people on food stamps (SNAP) has nearly doubled in the last 5 years, while the size of the government’s current account deficit, which does not include its unfunded liabilities, has increased by over 70%.   What we can all see at the end of this fork is the simple fact that the numbers cannot continue to grow as they are growing without something giving way.

Who will feed the 60 million should government go belly up?
