CBO’s estimates indicate that under Obama’s presidency, number of people on food stamps rose to 45 million which is about 1 in every 7 Americans. This is a 70% increase since 2007 and expected to continue to grow until 2014
This rise is adding $72 billion to the deficit up from $30 billion in 2007. Does it still seem like a hyperbole when Newt called him the “Food Stamp President”. Unfortunately, statistically majority of people, who currently are on food stamps would vote for the guy who put them on the food stamps in the first place. With that knowledge, what’s your role in this?
