Creating a pauper debtor nation

With the latest jobs report, it is now the case that “Under Obama, Food Stamp Growth Is 75 Times Greater Than Job Creation,” according to statistics compiled by the Republican side of the Senate Budget Committee. “For Every Person Added to Jobs Rolls Since January 2009, 75 People Added To Food Stamp Rolls.”

Here’s a chart detailing the growth:

Obama Food Stamps

In January 2009, there were 133.56 million Americans with jobs and 31.98 million on food stamps. Today, there are 133.76 million Americans with jobs and 46.68 million on food stamps.

Since January 2009, as the chart shows, a net of 194,000 new jobs have been created. During that same time, 14.7 million have been added to the food stamp rolls.

“Simply put, the President’s policies have not produced jobs. During his time in office, 14.7 million people were added to the food stamp rolls. Over that same time, only 194,000 jobs were created—thus 76 people went on food stamps for every one that found a job,” says Senator Jeff Sessions, ranking member of the Senate Budget Committee. “This is a product of low growth. Post-recession economic growth in 2010 was 2.4%, and dropped in 2011 to 1.8%. This year it has dropped again to 1.77%. Few, if any, net jobs will be created with growth of less than 2%.”

The Republicans on the Senate Budget Committee put the job growth into perspective:

In January 2009, there were 133.56 million Americans with jobs and 31.98 million on food stamps. Today, there are 133.76 million Americans with jobs and 46.68 million on food stamps. The employment rolls have thus grown by 0.15 percent and the food stamp rolls have grown by 46 percent, meaning that for every one American who found a job, 75 Americans signed up for food stamps.  Meanwhile, during that time, our nation’s debt has risen $5.63 trillion. Total spending on food stamps is now more than $80 billion annually, a fourfold increase from 2001. Total spending on federal means-tested welfare—food stamps, public housing, social services, cash aid, etc.—is now approximately $1 trillion. That amount is enough, if converted to cash, to send every household beneath the federal poverty line an annual check for $60,000.

Welfare spending is projected to remain permanently elevated; for instance, at no point in the next 10 years will fewer than 1 in 9 Americans be on food stamps. In fact, the Administration has actively sought to boost food stamp spending and enrollment, including through a partnership with the Mexican government to advertise benefits to foreign nationals, as well as materials that teach outreach workers how to “overcome the word ‘No.’” USDA even goes so far as to argue that the program is “the most direct stimulus you can get.”

Overall, in the last four years, the United States’ gross federal debt has increased 53 percent, food stamp enrollment has increased 46 percent, and the number of employed persons has increased just 0.15 percent. This picture, however, is even more ominous than it looks. While only 194,000 net jobs have been created since 2009, the working age population has increased by approximately 5 million—almost 25 times that amount. In other words, a shrinking share of working age adults have or are even looking for a job. The real unemployment number (U-6), therefore, is 14.6 percent.

To put this month’s job creation in historical perspective, in October of 1984, 286,000 jobs were created—67 percent more—at a time when the U.S. working age population was 26 percent smaller than it is today.

Over time, these trends, if not reversed, spell economic disaster for the United States and its citizens. source- Weekly Standard

  • NOBAMA !!!!

  • The intent of obama’s policies is to collapse the system.
    (Not to create jobs and prosperity for more people).

    Then, rebuild it as a Socialist-Collectivist State,(Communism and a One World Government).

    Hopefully we can overthrow this Coup forced on America!

    Last day for early voting–GO VOTE Americans! We need everyone to save the Constitution!

    • … from christians

      • No, my friend, “””FOR the Christians””” egads, man, break down the meaning of your own given name. You are beating up on yourself, with your errored word, ”from.”
        Salvation is but a plea away,
        Ask Him quickly, simply say,
        ‘Please Forgive, I’m truly Yours,’
        Watch what happens to Heavens doors.
        For you, they open.

  • ‘Half-Fast’ information, seems to continue to be just that, ‘Half-Fast.’ Of course the number of Food-Stamp eligible has increased, the Recession has caused many, NOT, to have an income, sufficient to feed the family; thus a tremendous increase in eligible people. This exact situation is what “””Welfare””” was supposed to be designed to accomplish, “”A Hand “UP,” not a Hand “OUT.”””
    As a staunch Conservative, I resent those of my ilk offering a ‘Half-truth,’ just for some Press coverage. Shame on us.
    I’m hoping, and praying, that enough legal members of “We the People,” wake up to what BHO is trying to do, IMO, and vote his hatreds, and Socialistic Dictatorial Agenda, to the ‘Circular-File’ marked “””Failed Attempts to Destroy.””” but I don’t want to rant, so will only say one more thing:
    (Without words, my thought: Ah, that feels much better, I pray to be able to say, Tuesday Evening). Loud thought, huh? (^8

  • I have a whole page on Obama’s atrocities in Libya. They are slamming us with the election television coverage diversion and the east coast storm, ignoring this all important issue. The Libya information has to get out and be told, it has to go viral. Even those who are for him have to use their heads after knowing about this and realize he’s destroying our country, and anything else he deems necessary, even human beings. Romney isn’t a prize, but anything’s better then this monster. Wake up America. Smell the coffee already. Visit my blog for very important information at http://endtimealerts.blogspot.com/2012/11/obama-sacrificed-them-like-sheep.html
