Obama Ag Secretary: More People on Food Stamps Means More Jobs (Video)

They’re all nuts!
First it was Pelosi. Now it’s the Ag Secretary.

Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack also agrees that more people on food stamps means more jobs.

Vilsack must be very proud then because a record number of Americans are on food stamps today.

How do these crackpots ever get into office? That’s the real question.

    Time to fire all these socialists and RATs (DemocRATs) and have them join the unemplyment line and maybe even qualify for Foodstamps. . then they can tell us how many jobs were created. . .

    They are a pox on the country – -Incompetent, Inept, and Into themselves.

    Time to Restore AMERICA to Greatness!!!

    Perry/Palin or Perry/Christie or even Palin/Perry or Palin/Christie

    Mr. Vilsack, go take a look in Europe. They go from one benefit to another and it doesn’t help anyone, let alone the local economy. It just COSTS money.

    Good grief.

    Please…… PLEASE stop saying they’re nuts.

    They’re not nuts ; they’re not incompetent ; they’re not inexperienced.

    They know exactly what they’re doing.

    They’re changing the narrative across the board and 99.9% of the media is part of the equation.

    They’re re-writing current, recent and past history one ‘nudge‘ at a time.

    It’s “The Big Lie” being promulgated on every single aspect of American life, individual freedom and Rights.

    They said they were going to fundamentally transform America.

    They got funded and elected by extreme leftists to do it.

    They’re doing it.

    Wake up, because they’re just beginning the ramp up to “it”.

    Want some proof ?

    BATF promoted the three gents in charge of Fast & Furious.

    Yeah, promoted.

    I think the real point is that no other President has been so desperate to hike their jobs building resume, that they had to claim those receiving unemployment and food stamps are actually help to create jobs because they spend money right away, locally.

    Those jobs are already built into the economic system, there is no way to estimate how many jobs the two programs saves, or how many are added when the systems have more using them, like 9% unemployment, and 20% on Foodstamps, both up 50% under Obama.

    No other president has been so desperate to need to pad their jobs record, and this needs to be relayed to the people through ads.

    Now, lets say Obama wants to have 200 million on food stamps, 120 million unemployed, he will then have created some 100 million jobs. Of course those jobs would cost the Governments $100 billion a month, but he would of created jobs.

    Wait, isn’t that socialism?

    I’m dying to know how more Americans living on a sub-standard, bare bones subsistence diet that originated in the concentration camps (see Hunger in America, published in the late 70s by Harvard School of Public Health) can in ANY way “create more jobs.”! If anything, people spending less on groceries will create FEWER jobs, since stores will sell less.

  • Tjexcite

    Why do they need the middle man and not just pay the farms and stores to give free food the the people. They can set up state-owned farm and state owned grocery stores and then pay people to work at them and when you need food you stand in the bread line to get what you want are allowed. Why pay people to pay people to work at the farms.

    Or they can just launch a hot air balloon and dump money on the crowd below and that would give more jobs or something.

    the only industry that i can see benefitting would be the poverty industry.
    [[There is little doubt that they benefit financially and create jobs based on dealing with the poor. John Stossel says that since the poverty industry is reliant on the existence of a substantial poor class, such organizations spend more time giving handouts and defending the poor, rather than helping them move up in society.[4]]]

    Presto, $1.00 becomes $1.84.

    They have to be evil, because they can’t possibly be THAT STUPID.

    Record number of marxist idiots in government.

    More people on food stamps
    means London style rioting in USA

    Kenny Solomon,

    Thank you for stating the obvious, its been said before but needs to be repeated daily. We are facing a force that wish’s the destruction of our country. These cretins are not fools but the tools of a force that see’s our country as an obstacle to their One World Government dream. Why Americans continue to ignore the truth is frustrating and dangerous. It can and is happening, America wake up.

    Move government out of the way.

    Recovery happens.

    Every time.

    I simply do not know what to do about these people who think big government and government dependency are good things. Basically there is no hope for them. As Savage says, Liberalism is a Mental Disorder.

    But we don’t have to suffer them. They MUST be voted out of office. To do that is where we come in. We MUST, we HAVE TO, educate friends and family that limited government means freedom and economic progress. Big government just the opposite.

    The solution is in the hands of the voters. Which explains why the left is constantly after the goal of a dumbed down, dependent electorate.

    Vilsack mentioned things that are done to magically turn $1.00 in food stamps to $1.84 in stimulus funds. The things he mentioned are “stock it”, “pack it”, & “ship it”. He forgot to mention that you also have to “PAY FOR IT.

    #3, KS is right, they do know what they are doing, but it’s hard when you have to work with “messy things like democracy”.

    The thing they over look is that all groceries have to be stocked, packed & shipped. People on food stamps eat less groceries because they cannot buy as much food and they use FAR less in the way of consumables like TP, cleaners and such – food stamps don’t cover that and you have to be pretty darned poor to get food stamps. That means LESS packing, LESS shipping and LESS stocking of shelves . . .


    “How do these crackpots ever get into office? That’s the real question.”


    the real question is who are the fukken morons that will continue to vote for them

  • dwd

    Why isn’t everyone in America on food stamps all the time, then? Let’s do that, if it’s so productive.

    Question asked: How do these crackpots ever get into office?

    Answer: Crackpots send them.

    Government is just a mirror image unfortunately.
