With nearly 1 in 7 U.S. citizens on food stamps, should the government be spending up to $ 3 million advertising ob how people can qualify for this program? If a person is poor and hungry, isn't it their responsibility to seek out qualifications for social assistance programs?

Believe me, I am not saying I am against food stamps. There is an obvious need in this down economy and with people earning less and less. I just think those in need have a personal responsibility to look for help without advertising for it.
I agree with pagevoice to a certain extent...sometimes people do not know where to begin looking for help. You have to know which Dept.,which agency. A simple website that points people in the right direction, and an ad in the phone book would help.
