Just How Many Are On Foodstamps

I saw the headline and thought well that helps explain just how well obama has done with the economy. Sometimes I wonder if we are using the right yardstick to measure obama's achievements. I mean what if he's playing jacks while the rest of us are playing checkers. It almost seems like his goal is to add as many to the government teat as he can while the rest of us are rooting for fewer on welfare and more jobs.

And a Food Stamp Nation

An analysis by Breitbart News has found that the number of individuals on food stamps now exceeds the combined populations of 24 states and the District of Columbia.

In November, the U.S. Department of Agriculture reported that a record 47,102,780 individuals receive food stamps.
According to US. Census Bureau data, that figure exceeds the combined populations of: Alaska, Arkansas, Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wyoming.
Since January 2009, the number of individuals on food stamps has skyrocketed from 31.9 million to the current record high 47.1 million. By comparison, in 1969 just 2.8 million Americans received food stamps.
