Seventy percent of counties with the fastest-growth in food-stamp aid during the last four years voted for the Republican presidential candidate in 2008, according to U.S. Department of Agriculture data compiled by Bloomberg. They include Republican strongholds like King County, Texas, which in 2008 backed Republican John McCain by 92.6 percent, his largest share in the nation; and fast-growing Douglas County, Colorado.

Nope they don't want anyone to know their dirty little secret, but we need to bring this up every time they use the words liberal/democrat and handouts in the same sentence.

The increase in food-stamp recipients also was pronounced in Republican bastions such as Collin County, Texas, which registered a 128 percent increase to 47,102 households in 2011, and Gwinnett County, Georgia, where usage climbed 117 percent to 101,815 households. Collin County, a Dallas suburb, gave McCain 62 percent of its 2008 vote. Gwinnett, part of the Atlanta metro area, supported the Republican with 55 percent of its ballots.


Interesting.

Counties and States with Republican dominated leaders generate more poor people.

I've pointed out the welfare gap in red states versus the blue states and it always gets some amusing reactions. Most Republicans don't understand how much of a drag some deep red states are on the union. States like Mississippi don't really do anything that benefits the U.S.

Why is this any surprise. Some of the most fervent right-wing Republicans I know live in mobile homes and are on social security disability.
