CNSNews.com )– Since taking office in 2009, food stamp rolls under President Barack Obama have risen to more than 47 million people in America, exceeding the population of Spain.

“Now is the time to act boldly and wisely – to not only revive this economy, but to build a new foundation for lasting prosperity,” said Obama during his first joint session address to Congress on Feb. 24, 2009.

Since then, the number of participants enrolled in food stamps, known as the Supplemental Assistance Nutrition Program (SNAP), has risen substantially.

When Obama entered office in January 2009 there were 31,939,110 Americans receiving food stamps. As of November 2012—the most recent data available—there were 47,692,896 Americans enrolled, an increase of 49.3 percent.

According to the 2011 census, Spain had a population of 46,815,916.
Furthermore, between January 2009 and November 2012 the food stamp program added approximately an average 11,269 recipients per day.

President Obama will deliver his fourth State of the Union address Tuesday evening. Obama is expected to focus on jobs and the economy.

Never let it be said, Obama doesn't know how to buy votes. He's a real pro at it, as long as it's your money.

Actually more people signed up for food stamps under Bush than has under Obama. Bush was the true food stamp President with his failed economic policies that sent the nation into a recession that still hasn't fully recovered.
I do however agree that people need to get a job and get off government assistance. Obama's economy has added millions of jobs. Time to go out and get one.

P.S. I think its also time to vote for some politicians that will stop giving the rich welfare too. Oil companies and farmers are doing just fine without our tax dollars. Build some roads or bridges with that money.

Under Bush Food stamps increased by 17.3 million people VS. Obama's 16.5 million. And the number is starting to decrease now that the economy is improving.
But think of it this way. If the Government cut out food stamps it would make the economy crumble. Farmers would go broke because commodity prices would nose dive. We either give the money to feed the hungry or we give it to farmers to subsidize low prices. Either way our tax dollars are going to be spent.

dont know where you get your Facts Lazer Brain!

Since President Obama became President in January 2009, nearly 14 million additional Americans were receiving food stamps as of May 2011. This number represents a 43% increase over the period, and includes nearly 15% of the total U.S. population.

In fact, the number of people receiving assistance from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), is increasing at a rate of 475,000 people a month, nearly 1.6x the rate at which the level of assistance increased for President Bush from October 2007 to December 2008, the earliest monthly data available on the USDA

President Obama’s policies have allowed more people than ever to qualify for food stamps, including those outside the traditional low-income demographic. The program used to be limited to 3 months in a 3-year period for able-bodied adults without dependents (ABAWDs)“who were not working, participating in, and complying with the requirements of a work program for 20 hours or more each week, or a workfare program.”

However, President Obama, and the then-Democratically controlled Congress expanded the program under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, more popularly known as the “Stimulus Bill” The Stimulus Bill WHAT A joke that was!! Just like The Cash for Clunkers Bill Another go nowhere spend Our money Stupidity by the Libtards!!! when are you Democrats going to Realize you can not buy your way out of an economic disaster? it didn't work back in the 20's during the Great depression and it wont work now!!!! Also The More Free Handouts you give the People The Lazier they get!! WHY work for your needs when The Guvment gives it to you for free????Geez..

Are you even able to comprehend your cut and paste? Your paste numbers making Obama look better than the ones I posted. Lol

Bottom line is more people went on food stamps under Bush than has under Obama. Now your reading some right wing nut job site that is trying to twist the facts and leave out important information to convince you that Obama is somehow worse than Bush was. IMPOSSIBLE.
You should consider a new hobby rather than talking politics. I'm guessing you voted for Bush twice and disqualifies you from talking about politics in my book.

Jerry, your trying to reason with an idiot.

He's one of those rare birds that over looks Paying twice the price to fill up his gas tank. He won't complain about paying twice as much for food, jacked up healthcare costs and stagnant wages. If you ask him, he'll try to convince you the economy is fine and all's well on the world scene.

Obama supporters refuse to see that the real unemployment rate is closer to 16% than the 6+% the government reports. He will parrot any lie that shifts our 6 year president from any blame for anything. He more than likely is living off the taxpayers and thinks Obama will keep the good times rolling for the spunge class.

He's been the worst president in history. If he were white, he'd be lucky not to be in jail. Obama's stupidity is cancelled out by misplaced white guilt and black worshippers.

Everything is always someone else's fault. 2016 can't get here soon enough.
