If we add in the principal discretionary programs that help people meet basic needs (low-income housing, WIC, and LIHEAP) and examine both them and the entitlement and other mandatory programs, the 91 percent figure drops to 90 percent.
This analysis uses a narrow definition of disability that misses individuals who become disabled so young that they haven’t amassed enough work history to qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance or Medicare, and whose countable household income or assets are over the very low SSI eligibility limits, which are below the poverty line. If we broaden the definition to include other adults who report work-limiting disabilities in the Census survey data, the percentage of benefits going to people who are elderly or disabled or members of working households rises from 91 percent to 92 percent

These moochers are breaking the bank !!!

Myth 4: SNAP spending is out-of-control.

Reality 4: SNAP has only responded to increased need given the current economic state.

Since the number of SNAP beneficiaries is at a historic high, critics have called President Obama the “Food Stamp President.” In reality, these high enrollment numbers merely reflect the counter-cyclical nature of the SNAP program. The program acts as a safety-net, allowing anyone who is eligible to enroll. Because of the economic recession, more Americans are eligible for SNAP and, as a result, have become SNAP beneficiaries. When the economy recovers, the number of the SNAP beneficiaries should drop, and there is already some evidence suggesting that is the case.

Senators get automatic $2,900 pay boost after MP’s vote to increase their own salaries
When MPs quietly gave themselves a pay increase late last month — ending a three-year salary freeze — they not only gave a gift to themselves, but to the legislative body down the hall.
The base salary for senators went up to $135,200 from $132,300 — an increase of $2,900 — on April 1,2013 the same day salary increases kicked in for MPs, whose base salary rose to $160,200 from just under $158,000, for an increase of about $2,500.
While MPs gave themselves a 1.6 per cent increase, that decision for senators translated into an approximately 2.3 per cent wage increase for everyone in the upper chamber, including Sen. Patrick Brazeau who is on a forced leave of absence. Senate administrative rules allow the upper chamber to reduce a suspended senator’s salary. Brazeau, however, is not suspended, meaning he retains his salary and only has spending limits imposed on his office budget.

On a more interesting note:

Over the past month, Congress has been working to re-authorize the farm bill, which funds and sets the country’s food and agricultural policy every five years. Both the Senate and House had planned to make significant cuts to SNAP, which accounts for approximately 76 percent of the farm bill’s budget. The Senate proposed and passed a bill, which would make cuts of $4.1 billion in SNAP funding over the next ten years, meaning an estimated 500,000 families will lose $90 per month in benefits. The House failed to pass a bill that would make even more aggressive cuts, reducing SNAP funding by $20 billion over the next ten years, cuts that would impact almost 2 million people. But that is not the only debate surrounding the farm bill. Despite serving nearly one in seven Americans, SNAP is widely misunderstood with countless myths mischaracterizing the program.

NICE!!!

Patrick Brazeau (born November 11, 1974) is a suspended. Canadian senator, who until February 7, 2013, was sitting with the Conservative Party. At the age of 38, he is the youngest current Senator. From February 2006 until January 2009 he held the position of national chief of the Congress of Aboriginal Peoples. Brazeau was expelled from the Conservative caucus following his February 7, 2013, arrest for domestic assault and sexual assault.??????? LOL!

Patrick Brazeau gets a pay raise and is suspened? WTF? LMAO! OMG! LOL!

Not only is SNAP an economic driver, the entire welfare program is the greatest profit generator this country has. The safety net it represents gives entrepreneurs the chance to take bigger risks. We've always said that small business is what employs people and drives our economy. I wonder how many of those small business owners would've even tried their ventures if failure meant starvation for their families. It counters risk and free people to take chances they wouldn't ordinarily take. But I don't expect these dumb tea baggers to make that connection.

And to idiot that said they could feed themselves for 4.20 a day - you can't. And keep your anecdotal bullshit to yourselves. Why do dumb tea baggers always use anecdotal evidence over fact? Sure, in 1970 5 bucks mean you could live. In 2013, don't even pretend you can. But it is funny how one dumb tea bagger earlier said that food stamps are a driver for obesity then this dumb tea bagger says the money provides only low quality foods. No shit. That's why poverty can create obesity. Food stamps will buy bread and potatoes. They won't buy fresh fruits and vegetables. Then these dumbasses wonder why people in poverty suffer from poor diet and obesity.

Like I said though, these aren't people that understand difficult concepts. That's why they're now in the powerless margins of society, constantly screaming from the sidelines and wondering why they can't win an election while they offend women, blacks, poor people, young people, homosexuals, immigrants and everyone that graduated college. You can tell them that old white men don't decide elections anymore and that they've lost 5 out of the last 6 national elections going back 20 years, but they'll just shake their bible at you and scream about taxes they don't pay.

According to U.S. President George W. Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair, the coalition mission was "to disarm Iraq of weapons of mass destruction, to end Saddam Hussein's support for terrorism, and to free the Iraqi people."[23] Former chief counter-terrorism adviser on the National Security Council Richard A. Clarke believes Bush took office with a predetermined plan to invade Iraq.[24] General Wesley Clark, the former Supreme NATO Allied Commander and Joint Chiefs of Staff Director of Strategy and Policy, describes in his 2003 book, Winning Modern Wars, his conversation with a military officer in the Pentagon shortly after 9/11 regarding a plan to attack seven Middle Eastern countries in five years: "As I went back through the Pentagon in November 2001, one of the senior military staff officers had time for a chat. Yes, we were still on track for going against Iraq, he said. But there was more. This was being discussed as part of a five-year campaign plan, he said, and there were a total of seven countries, beginning with Iraq, then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Iran, Somalia and Sudan." [25] Others place a much greater emphasis on the impact of the 11 September 2001 attacks, and the role this played in changing U.S. strategic calculations, and the rise of the freedom agenda.[26][27] According to Blair, the trigger was Iraq's failure to take a "final opportunity" to disarm itself of alleged nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons that U.S. and British officials called an immediate and intolerable threat to world peace.[28] In 2005, the Central Intelligence Agency released a report saying that no weapons of mass destruction had been found in Iraq.[29]

In a January 2003 CBS poll 64% of Americans had approved of military action against Iraq, however 63% wanted Bush to find a diplomatic solution rather than go to war, and 62% believed the threat of terrorism directed against the U.S. would increase due to war.[30] The invasion of Iraq was strongly opposed by some long-standing U.S. allies, including the governments of France, Germany, New Zealand, and Canada.[31][32][33] Their leaders argued that there was no evidence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq and that invading the country was not justified in the context of UNMOVIC's 12 February 2003 report. On 15 February 2003, a month before the invasion, there were worldwide protests against the Iraq War, including a rally of three million people in Rome, which is listed in the Guinness Book of Records as the largest ever anti-war rally.[34] According to the French academic Dominique Reynié, between 3 January and 12 April 2003, 36 million people across the globe took part in almost 3,000 protests against the Iraq war.[35]

President Obama played cards during Osama bin Laden raid:

President Obama didn’t spend all the time during the raid that killed Osama bin Laden glued to a video feed in the White House Situation Room.

He took time out to play cards. Obama was “like,‘I can’t watch this entire thing,’” former aide Reggie Love said in a recent speech at UCLA. A video of the July 19 event was posted and then removed from YouTube Wednesday .

I think the point Reggie Love was making was that Obama is always COOL UNDER PRESSURE. Lol....tell us something we don't know. But his entire Presidency probably depended on that RAID so he probably just played cards to release the nervous energy.

Obama is the COOLEST and one of the SMARTEST Presidents of all time.

He was cool under pressure against Hillary in 2008 and then against McCain for the Presidency. But there was probably more pressure last year in the second DEBATE against Romney. Obama clearly didn't show up for the FIRST DEBATE and Romney was SURGING in the polls.

So what happens? President Obama destroys Romney in the second DEBATE and the THIRD DEBATE on foreign policy was a LAUGHER. It was like Obama was debating a child.

At one point Obama turned to the clueless Romney and said ''You mentioned the navy, for example, and that we have fewer ships than we did in 1916. Well, governor, we also have fewer horses and bayonets, because the nature of our military's changed.''

After that Romney was TOAST.

So yes...this President is ALWAYS cool under pressure. That's why he is known as ''NO DRAMA...OBAMA.'' The cooler head always prevails.

Cards anyone? LMAO!

But here is the headline: young black men commit homicides at a rate 10 times greater than whites and Hispanics combined. When presented with damning evidence like that, and like the mini-holocaust in Chicago where hundreds of African-Americans are murdered each year the civil rights industry looks the other way or makes excuses. They blame guns, poor education, lack of jobs, rarely do they define the problem accurately. So here it is. The reason there is so much violence and chaos in the black precincts is the disintegration of the African-American family.- See more at: http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2013/07/bill-...

Overwhelmingly ... and they wonder why they are "profiled".
