Study: Nearly half of U.S. kids will receive food stamps

A newly released study says that nearly half of U.S. children and 90 percent of black children will be on food stamps at some point during their childhood.

Can these numbers actually be close to correct? If so, what would that say about the state of our economy and the difficulties faced by average families? What would it say about the growth in income disparity between the haves and the have-nots that in a country where some people have so much that almost half of the children in the country – and 90 percent of black children! – would live in families eligible for food stamps at some point?
