OH GREAT! Food Stamp Recipients at Record 41.8 Million Americans in July, U.S. Says. Pelosi: Food Stamps 'Biggest Bang For Our Buck!' WTF?!?

Is the Cloward and Piven strategy working?

The number of Americans receiving food stamps rose to a record 41.8 million in July as the jobless rate hovered near a 27-year high, the government said.

Recipients of Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program subsidies for food purchases jumped 18 percent from a year earlier and increased 1.4 percent from June, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said today in a statement on its website. Participation has set records for 20 straight months.

Unemployment in September may have reached 9.7 percent, according to a Bloomberg News survey of analysts in advance of the release of last month’s rate on Oct. 8. Unemployment was 9.6 percent in July, near levels last seen in 1983.

An average of 43.3 million people, more than an eighth of the population, will get food stamps each month in the year that began Oct. 1, according to White House estimates.

This woman is 100% nuts! So we have a community organizer as president, a moron as vice president, and a mental patient as speaker of the house. Why in the world do people vote democrat? Are they TRYING to destroy America?

  1. In Washington State you can get $600 in food stamps for your family of 4. You can then take those stamps and sell them for 50 cents on the dollar. You can then take that $300 and buy prescription drugs to feed your habit. What a racket. Seems the only person hurt is the taxpayer and the CHILDREN!!! If you can't pass a urine test, you don't get a check! Shame on the state of Washington or as we call it up here, San Francisco North. Idiots!
