"In 2008, the department issued $2.8 million in food stamps, she said.In 2009, nearly $3.4 million was issued.And in 2010, we`re projecting over $4 million," Fairbairn said.The increase is just for food stamps, she said, although they are seeing an increase in Medicaid applications and the TANF caseload doubled."

My guess is from the large increase of illegals from Mexico. Why not, Prowers County has always been the land of milk and honey for the lazy and illegals!

I don't see the problem. It's increased government spending. That plus higher taxes across the board will solve all our problems. Right PP?
