1 In 7 On Food Stamps Up Over 135%

Obama's face is finally on the currency.  Witness the shocking increase in Food Stamps just during Obama's tenure alone.

The numer of people on the program has increased 70% under Obama. Spending on the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) increased 135% or $78 billion last year alone, the CBO reports.  The total cost is well north of $275 billion.

“Nearly 45 million recipients, one out of every seven U.S. residents, received SNAP benefits in an average month in fiscal year 2011,” CBO notes.  The total cost for all entitlements in the 2010 spending just completed was about 60% of the total.  Defense accounts for just 19% and deep cuts are now underway at the DoD.  Clearly, under Obama, the country is sacrificing its defense and putting millions on a government check.

The Food Stamp disaster is a symptom of a larger problem.  Poverty.  To qualify for the program, in general, a family must not have assets, income, or cash exceeding $2000.   And though there are nearly 50 million Americans already on the program, millions more are 'waiting' in an application pipeline.

 The country is imploding in a lack of jobs, and crushing poverty.
