Over 45 MILLION Americans On Food Stamps For 55TH STRAIGHT MONTH
President Obama truly is the Food Stamp President. Under his leadership, Americans have treated food stamps as a work replacement, instead of a supplement.
The number of individuals receiving benefits from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, otherwise known as food stamps, has exceeded 45 million for 55 straight months, according to data released by the Department of Agriculture.
There were 45,368,265 beneficiaries of the food stamp program in October 2015, the latest month for which data is available. The number increased by over 85,000 from September to October.
Robert Doar, a poverty studies expert at the American Enterprise Institute, said that welfare programs like food stamps are helpful when they supplement the paycheck of working recipients, but they can also discourage recipients from working.
Thanks Obama, great job.
