It's an unassailable fact that in January 2007, when Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid took over Congress, unemployment was 4.6% and food stamp usage was around 26.5 million Americans. Today, the actual unemployment rate is 9.6% and over fifty million Americans are now on food stamps.Waxman, "The point is Food Stamp usage has doubled and is has. Stop beating around the bush, dumbfk." You nailed John Galt, Waxey-eared , Galt claimed "44.7 million Americans now on food stamps, compared to 28.2 million in 2008."--All of them signed up for Food Stamps ON George W Bush's watch BEFORE Obama was inaugurated in 2009. I wonder why that was? Maybe, the deep recession and rising unemployment at the end of Bush's term in office? Duhhhhhh! You don't 'beat around the bush,now dumbfk'!:-D
Nancy Pelosi: Quickest way to create jobs is to provide more funding for food stamps.
