Who Says There is No Growth Under Obama?

20 Apr

The number of people on Federal Disability has DOUBLED during his 3 inglorious years.  5.4 Million people have been added to the roles since his presidency, putting the total at 10.8 million.

Yes, that 10.8 million people with a vested interest in growing the size of government.  I suspect many of these people are not so disabled that they won’t be able to hobble to the polls in November to vote to keep themselves a meal ticket.

And don’t get me wrong.  My snark is not directed against those who truly are disabled and are truly deserving.  But I know that some people get disability due to substance dependency, of all things.  So, we should really give them the money to continue their lifestyles.

    The same is true of food stamps, and oh, by the way, the stimulus package also included the repeal fo welfare reform.

    Yeah, I just read that SNAP participation has increased by 70%.

    And I forgot how they snuck in removal of the very successful 1996 welfare reform.

    Funny, how powerless the pres is, when it comes to oil prices, deficit/debt issues, you name it. Almost seems like increasing dependency is the real goal here, or something . . .

    cheers!
