My goodness, and that's reported on Arch-Liberal Medium MSNBC?

Guess they're not so "in the tank" as so many had been told, er, concluded for themselves.

It is too bad the states are in such a shambles, though.

Haha, complaining about food stamps?
Unemployment Insurance?

Those are two of (actually, top 2) the most stimulative things that can be done.
Its really funny to hear someone complain about it, as if its a bad thing.
