    The Obama policies sets a new record for food stamps

    Do you want 4 more years of this?

    Record High Enrollment for Food Stamps: 46,681,833
    Food stamps enrollment has hit a new record high. 46,681,833 are now enrolled in the social welfare program, according to the United States Department of Agriculture, the federal department that runs the program.
    Food Stamp enrollment went from 31.98 million in Jan 2009 to 39.43m in Jan 2010, to 44.19m in Jan 2011, to 46.45m in Jan 2012 to present 46.68m. A 46% increase from when Obama took off. And if you notice it has been a steady increase. His policies have not helped people but put more people on the food stamp rolls.
    Total spending on food stamps is projected to reach nearly $800 billion over the next 10 years, with no fewer than 1 in 9 people on the program at any given time. Neither food stamp participation nor spending on the program are ever projected to return to pre-recession levels at any point in the next 10 years.

      We all know why those statistics are result of the Great Recession which could easily fell into The Great Depression II without government spending to support the private businesses. Now that jobs are being create monthly on automobile manufacturing and housing, again, thanks to stimulus money, all those numbers should get better over time.

      Meanwhile, chew on this:
      Romney's outburst that "government does not create jobs" seems to reveal his cognitive dissonance: how can he as president create 12 million jobs then, hmm? Which is it, Mr. Romney?
