2011: 45 million received them

UP 70% from 2007

Cost of program UP $72 billion

UP $30 billion from 4 years ago

Under other presidents
Bush41 (1990,recession) 27 million on program

Ford (mid70s) 18.5 million

Carter (1980) 21 million

It was a stat that was thrown out by a radio host during a morning talk show ... Take it for what it's worth
