16% of Texas households at risk of going hungry

What does this have to do with US political news.

Well, didn't our president promise to do for the US what he'd done for Texas?

A higher percentage of households in Texas were at risk of going hungry over the past three years than in any other state, according to data released Friday by the U.S. Agriculture Department.

Between 2002 and 2004, more than 16 percent of Texas households were food insecure, meaning that at some point they had trouble providing enough food for all their family members, the USDA report said.

In nearly 5 percent of Texas households, at least one family member went hungry at least one time during that period because they couldn't afford enough food.

After 6 years of Bush economic policies and a near clone of a successor, Texas leads the way.

So tell us again how good those trickle down economic tricks are...

Also, most of the paid right wing forum spammers come from Texas (second seems to be Florida). So now we have all that conservative forum spam money and all that trickle down economics as well as the pork being thrown to Bush's base.

And Texas is number one! --In percentage of hungry families.

Are you beginning to see a trend?
