Let's see Gingrich called Obama the Food Stamp President to which the media slammed him and said it wasn't so but out today was a report that said

Friday, January 27th, 2012 | Posted by admin Welfare, food stamp rolls soar under Obama
If the Republican primaries are any indication, one big debate in the upcoming election will be whether President Obama is pushing the country toward a European-style welfare culture.

While it’s true that the country has been headed in this direction for many years — with the explosion in entitlements since the 1960s and the aging of the population — Obama has, in fact, greatly accelerated the trend.

According to the Census Bureau 49% now live in homes where at least one person gets a federal benefit — Social Security, workers comp, unemployment, subsidized housing, and the like. … That’s up from 44% the year before Obama took office, and way up from 1983, when fewer than a third were government beneficiaries.

This year, more than 46 million (15% of all Americans) will get food stamps. … That’s 45% higher than when Obama took office, and twice as high as the average for the previous 40 years.

But how can there be 45% more on Food Stamps under Obama when Pelosi said this in May.

"In the first year of the Obama administration, more jobs were created in the private sector than in the eight years of the Bush administration."
Nancy Pelosi on Monday, May 16th, 2011 in an interview with Bloomberg television
And Debbie Wasserman Schultz said

“On the pace that we’re on with job creation in the last four months — if we continue on that pace — all the leading economists say it is likely that we will — we will have created more jobs in this year than in the entire Bush Presidency,”


According to Pelosi, Wasserman Schultz and Obama the stimulus created millions of jobs BUT there are 45% more on Food Stamps than there was when he took office. They claimed they have created jobs BUT

•Jobless rate in January 2009: 7.8%. Jobless rate in November 2011: 8.6%.
•Number of employed in January 2009, in thousands: 133,563. In November 2011: 131,708
•Civilian participation rate in January 2009: 65.7%. In November 2011: 64.0%
•Unemployment level in January 2009, in thousands: 11,984. In November 2011: 13,303
•Number of people not in labor force, January 2009, in thousands: 80,554. In November 2011: 86,558
The number of jobs has declined almost 2 million during Obama’s term even without accounting for the 3 million-plus working-age adults who joined the population while Obama has been President, while the number of people not in the labor force has risen by six million. To give some perspective to that number, it took this measure six years to add six million people (Feb 2003 to Jan 2009), while it took Obama less than three years to achieve it

National debt when he took office was $10,626 Trillion. He just asked to have the debt limit increased to $16.1 trillion and what did the taxpayers get for his $5.5 Trillion in the last three years, 45% more on food stamps, 6 million more without jobs, and a whole lots of lies about how they are doing such a great job at fixing the economy. Can the US afford another 4 years of Obama? Can the US tax payers afford to pay back any more Obama donors with grants, guaranteed loans to bankrupt green energy companies, and cushy administration jobs? :x
