Report: Two Americans Enrolled in Food Stamps for Every Job Obama 'Created'
The White House has been touting the success of its economic agenda recently, claiming to have created 7.2 million jobs. But a look at the growing rolls of the federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) shows that for every job the administration says it created, two Americans have been added to the food stamp rolls.
In January of 2009, 32,204,859 Americans received SNAP aid, but as of April 2013, there were 47,548,694 Americans taking food stamps.
"That means that more than two Americans have been added to the food stamp rolls for every one job the administration says it has created," CNSNews reports.
Fifteen million more Americans have gone on food stamps since Obama took office in 2008.
Under Obama, 1.6 million more Americans are now collecting disability insurance, while 9.5 million workers have dropped out of the labor force altogether.
