Everyone knows the numbers are … “inaccurate”, (to say the least) but now, the first actual estimate from a credible source ….
With 47,000,000 Americans on food stamps, even the rate of 37.2% unemployed, shocks even the most vehement of Obama-supporters.
“Marotta, who recently advised those worried about an imploding economy to get a gun, said that the government isn’t being honest in how it calculates those out of the workforce or inflation, the two numbers used to get the Misery Index figure.”
Tie that to the rapid increase in federal assistance programs and one has a comprehensive picture of the failure of and havoc brought on by this subversive president!
“Another dose of reality has trumped the Obama administration’s economic happy talk. According to data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), one-in-five Americans were on the food stamp program in 2013. A staggering 23,052,388 households needed supplemental food assistance in FY2013, an increase of 722,675 households compared to FY2012.
The cost of the program, known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), has also reached an all-time high. For fiscal year 2013, the SNAP program cost American taxpayers $79.6 billion. That represents a 36.8 percent increase in expenditures over the last five years.”
