1* In recent years, there has been a large increase in the number of people receiving food stamps. Is that primarily because of tough economic times or primarily because government rules have made it easier to get food stamps?

2* Are food stamps too hard to get in this country, too easy to get or is the level of eligibility about right? 

3* Do you favor or oppose government efforts to encourage more people to get on food stamps?
