Obama Has Added Two Food-Stamp Recipients For Each Job Created – Investors.com
Welfare: SNAP, the U.S. food stamp program, has become a conduit for redistributing wealth and fundamentally transforming America, as welfare recipients now send food overseas and the White House markets to illegals.
While the administration laments the distraction of “phony” scandals like Benghazi and Fast and Furious that leave real Americans dead, it trots out phony statistics about how well the economy is doing.
“And what is absolutely true is that we have come a long way since the depths of the Great Recession,” White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said at a recent press briefing. “We’ve created over 7.2 million private-sector jobs.” How many of those jobs are part-time is one of the many things Carney left out.
Since February 2009, the first full month of Obama’s presidency, 9.5 million Americans have dropped out of the labor force. Nearly 90 million working-age Americans are not working today. Doing the math, 1.3 Americans have dropped out of the labor force for every job the administration claims to have created.
At the end of January 2009, 32.2 million Americans received Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) aid. As of April 2013, there were 47.5 million Americans on food stamps. Using the White House’s job growth number, the 15 million increase in recipients means more than two people went on food stamps for each job the administration says it has created.
