Food Stamp Enrollments Top 46 Million for 35 Months in a Row

Food Stamp Enrollments Top 46 Million for 35 Months in a Row

The government’s newly released food stamp enrollment figures reveal that the number of individuals in America on food stamps has topped 46 million for 35 consecutive months.

According to the Department of Agriculture, the number of individuals in July (the most recent month figures are available) who received food stamps was 46,486,434. The last time food stamp enrollments fell below 46 million was July 2011.

The new food stamp figures come on the heels of comments last week by President Barack Obama touting the revival of the American economy under his leadership.

“By every economic measure, we are better off now than when I took office,” Obama told an audience at Northwestern University on Thursday.

The number of individuals on food stamps has soared under Obama. Obama’scategorical eligibility changes, the administration’s aggressive food stamp marketing, and the abysmal Obama economy have all helped skyrocket food stamp enrollments. 

In 2009, 31.9 million people were on food stamps.
