The number of people on food stamps is up more than 220,000 in the first half of this year and up almost 12 million — or 34% — from June 2009 to June 2012.
The number of people in the labor force has fallen more than half a million in the past two months, with the participation rate down to 63.5%, a rate not seen in the past 30 years, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Almost 83,000 signed up for federal disability benefits in September, and more than 736,000 have joined in the first nine months of this year, according to the Social Security Administration. That's a higher enrollment rate than the first nine months of the Obama presidency.
Analysts say the higher disability enrollment rates are in part a reflection of workers' inability to find jobs.
Just imagine what the nation would be like if these people did not get food stamps. And its not going to get any better. So what is romney going to do, starve them all. He is going to do nothing. Companies will continue to pay lower wages and more and more people will need food stamps to survive. Companies love food stamps, it gives them more sales and instead of giving employees a decent wage they just let them all apply for more government aid. So why should they care.

The Reasons for Change is Obama has Lost the Support and Respect with Women Voters and Others.
People Notice: Most Men and Women are Turned Off Against Barack Obama most everywhere and Across All 50 States,
Here is the the Review of Debate 3 on October 22, 2012
By a Jewish Women Focus Group of 7,890 Women Connecticut Across America
Our Strong Plea for Change in the White House, Why? The following reasons listed bellow.
Note: This review is a agreement amongst a Group of almost 8000 Women watching debates.
During the Debate 3, President Barack Obama was Arrogant, Disrespectfully, Angry, Rude and Condescending to Governor Mitt Romney. Obama did not Act or Look Presidential.
We Feel Governor Mitt Romney Pasted the Presidential Test and is Ready to Lead USA
We Support Mitt Romney, found him to be a Smart, Respectable and Decent Gentleman.
Governor Mitt Romney Looked Much More Presidential, Ready to be Commander-in-Chief.
Mitt Romney said America Needs a Strong Economy in order to have a Strong Military for our National Security right now and the Future. ...... We All Agree.
Women came away from this Debate with a Very Good Impression of Governor Mitt Romney, in that he would be a “ A Safe Pair of Hands.” in Foreign Policy and a Strong Economy. We Trust Him More. Obama lied about Libya on 9 11 ( a 8 hour fire fight, Obama watched did nothing)
In Foreign Policy We feel Mitt Romney is Tough Enough to do what’s necessary, but laid-back enough not to do too much and get us into another war.
Miit Romney Did Not attack President Obama's Policies, he Simply Pointed Out a Few Needed Improvements in a Very Respectable Way.
During the debate Governor Mitt Romney Seemed More Like a Leader, Smart, Respectable, Thoughtful and Considerate. He looked and Acted more Like the New American President that our Nation and the rest of the World Needs so Disparately in These Troubling Economic Times.
Governor Mitt Romney was Calm, Thoughtful, Relaxed, Steady, Looked Like A Smart Gentleman and More Presidential.
Romney Looked and Acted as if he was Ready to Take the Job as Commander-in-Chief ASAP.
President Barack Obama Looked more like a Very Disparate Candidate and Challenger, very Negative, Acted like a Disrespectful Attack Dog Instead of the President of the United States.
Mitt Romney Expressed his Concern about Iran's Nuclear Threat that is 4 Years Closer and the USA Support of Israel, our Good Friend and Middle East Ally. The strained relationship with the Obama Administration.
Tonight Romney Impressed the Ladies Very much, in that a Vote for Him is a Vote for American Security, Peace and Safety, a Strong Economy, a Strong Military, Millions of Higher Paying Jobs, Prosperity for the Middle Class and Others. and a Quiet Peaceful Life for USA and all People.
The World is Much to Scary these days, Americans Aren’t Looking For a Scary Arrogant, Angry. Rude, Disrespectfully and Weak President. Barack Obama is Not the One to Lead us Any Longer
Tonight we Came Away with the Feeling that President Barack Obama is extremely a more Scary Candidate then the President of USA.
We are Concerned about America's Weaken Relationship with Israel, a Nuclear Iran, our Weaken Economy and the Huge 16 Trillion Dollars Debt, that in itself Threatens our National Security.
Americans, Black, White, Latinos, Wake Up, USA Debt is Bigger than our Gross National Product.
We Can Not Afford Four More Years of President Obama's Spending, Borrowing and lies.
We Can Not Afford Another 5 or 6 Trillion Dollars in More Debt From China or Other Countries.
Our Jewish Women's Focus Group of almost 8000 Democrats Therefore Proudly Endorse Governor Mitt Romney as the Next President of the United States of America.
Vote for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan Before It's to Late. Do it Now ....ASAP
Public Notice: We Feel Strongly that President Barack Obama is No Longer Fit to Lead USA.
Obama The Next One Term President Sees Middle Class Tax Increase as a Last Victory
The Largest Tax Hike in US History has just been upheld by the Supreme Court of the United States and President Obama sees this assault on the middle class as a victory.
The already unpopular 2010 health care reform law has been converted by the court into a $1.76 trillion tax increase funded by escalating taxes to be paid the vast majority of taxpayers. The high court’s ruling leaves in place 20 tax increases in the health-care law, of those, 12 tax hikes would affect families earning less than $250,000 per year, including a “Cadillac tax” on high-cost insurance plans, a tax on insurance providers, and an excise tax on medical device manufacturers. By formally converting ‘Obamacare’ into ‘Obamatax,’ the court allows Obama to raise taxes on the middle-class.
The decision is a distressing blow to taxpayers and represents the single largest tax increase on young people in the nation’s history. When it takes full effect, the Internal Revenue Service will have immense new power and authority to persecute and prosecute a whole new group of taxpayers.
If the law takes full effect, it will devastate small businesses and destroy any chance for a sustainable economic recovery. It will add trillions of dollars to the national debt and push the country toward bankruptcy even faster than current projections. Any individual who believes that this decision must be overturned must do everything possible to undo the damage that has been done, especially at the ballot box on November 6.
–Obamacare law contains 20 new or higher taxes on American families and small businesses–
WASHINGTON, DC – Obamacare contains 20 new or higher taxes on American families and small businesses.

2. Codification of the “economic substance doctrine” (Tax hike of $4.5 billion).

Barry's "Kill Your Health" scheme still needs to be deep-sixed with a stake driven through it. And, every Democrat who voted for that scheme needs to be FIRED and those five traitors in the Supreme Court need to resign; and, all of them need to be invited to leave the USA and head for one of their Prog Utopias like the UK or Europe; they really don't belong here.
In 2008, the panthers blocked republicans from voting
