    Food stamps reach record 47.1 million

    A record 47.1 million Americans received food stamps in August, the government said, as stubborn unemployment levels kept enrollment high.

    your own graph shows food stamp use is leveling out.

    seems to me less people are going on food stamps per year than before. that's a good thing. how do you intend to relate a reduced rate of dependency on food stamps with a failed obama presidency?

    But it is still slightly going up at the end again if you see, and it tends to keep rising according to the graph here. It's still a pretty big issue. Think how much the deficit could be lowered if a real solution was made to make the amount of people receiving food stamps or other welfare programs go down to just those who have disabilities that prevent them from acquiring real income of their own.

    It'll be in the 52M range in 4 years. The guy who knew how to stop the outflow of jobs will now be in the private sector making millions off the outflow of jobs and the guy who has never created a job in his life will be pointing fingers from his Ivory Perch. On the plus side, we will get to see the end of the welfare state in our lifetime when the nation goes bankrupt. Glad I own lots of land to grow food on

    yeah but the population is increasing by millions per year. this graph actually supports president obama. it shows that under his tenure, the rate of increase in food stamp use has fallen tremendously. zimmer doubtlessly didnt realize that when he posted it, though. and yes, it is rising, but it will always rise until we do something concrete about poor people. and by under his tenure, i mean after he stopped the massive bloodletting caused by the bush administration, which took a good 2 years to accomplish.

    Agreed. If you remember in I believe the second political debate, I believe Obama and Romney both basically said that they don't care to bring the low income jobs that a company like Apple offers overseas back to America. Obama said that jobs like this aren't skilled and it's not what America needs.

    Realistically though, we need jobs like that in our country. There will always be people who are qualified, great workers, and those who are not. We need manufacturing low wage jobs for people like this. Although they may pay low, at least this sector of citizens wouldn't need near as much government assistance in their lives.

    whomp they it iz?

    You just are latched onto the concept that all welfare recipients are still black queens with 20 kids in the ghetto, aren't you? you can say "but i didn't say that" but your tone is obvious - that's what you mean.

    Truth is - the majority are white, live in more rural areas, and have lost jobs in industries across the US where 'the average joe' can't find adequate work fast enough.

    You're being a judgmental and racist.

    You know - my husband busts his ass to put food on teh table but because of medical issues - he can't as of yet do the job hunting because he's in the military and they have him stationed at a healthcare facility - and not at home where he can see out employment. So when he's done with treatment he's out . . . and we *might* have to go on foodstamps if neither of us can secure employment fast enough.

    Quite your bull**** - you'd rely on them if you had no other choice just like so many people have been forced to do.

    I'd say 'educate yourself a bit' on people and society before forming such impish opinions - but I think you've already decided you don't want to look at things openly.

    And you're tye type of person who gives conservatism it's bad, foul name and ruin it for the rest of them - who aren't so snotty and judgmental of others.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.
