As President Obama gets ready to vacate the White House, people are thinking about what he has done in 8 years.

One milestone is a 32% increase in food stamp recipients !!

Actually with the population increase it might be a little less.

Very significant.

More than 13% of the population.

What went wrong?

Why not a decrease?

Under Obama, 10.7 Million More Use Food Stamps—A 32 Percent Jump

As President Obama prepares to leave office, his legacy will include an increase in the number of Americans using food stamps.

The number of food stamps recipients went up by 10.7 million people, a 32 percent jump, since President Obama took office in 2009, according to data released by the Department of Agriculture (USDA).

In 2009, 33,490,000 people received food stamp benefits. As of October 2016, the last month reported for FY 2016, 44,219,123 people received food stamp benefits, an increase of about 10,729,000.

The U.S. population as of October 1, 2016 was 324,607,826, according to U.S. Census Bureau estimates. Therefore, the 44,219,123 people on food stamps represented 13.6 percent of the population.

You know, the irony is that Obama is probably proud of this.

So this is why US national debt doubled over 8 years. Too much welfare.

Very possible.

Some would say he helped millions of people stay unemployed and underemployed !!

Obama's puppetmasters are certainly proud. The end game for them is to have all of us on food stamps and section 8. Turn us all into serfs who wouldn't dare bite the hand.

They are getting ready to dismantle everything he did.

Should of happened 4 years ago when he cheated.

He weaponized every single agency in the government.

He is the single worst President of all time.

At least the dude the drank the milk and died right away.

Didn't intentionally try to destroy America...

Since Obama came to office, there have been more people looking for jobs, than there are jobs.

Wait a minute... how does this work? Most news services say there are far, far more jobs now than when he took office.
Well, it is like this... there are more people today, unemployed, than ever before. However, the issue is that most have given up on job search and fallen back on government welfare.

I have two relatives who had well paying jobs in 2008. Today? They get paid less.
Seriously.
Just a wanna-be king who can't admit failure.

Gotta love the way his administration has screwed numbers.

Claiming to help unemployment by many full timers switching to part time or an extra part time and then needing federal assistance.

Yeah I love how any talk of Obama failures is non existent on the Democrat side and in the media. They really believe he's a sort of man god or something.

You know possibly... just possibly... there are millions of people who just turned 18 that cannot find a place of work. With the population exploding and the job market remaining stagnant it's a no brainer why this is happening.

They have no choice. Vote Democratic to continue getting welfare or starve to death on the streets.

More people on welfare is a reflection of how many are unemployed, not, "too much welfare".

Yeah, that is liberal logic. More people on food stamps is a success. Just like war on poverty. Trillions spent is the measuring stick, not the poverty rate which hasnt declined.

Yea, that's why they are creating robots to make burgers. Let's hope the robots are better at making your sandwich without onions better than those demanding $15 an hour?
