Obama had 8 years to get these numbers to drop, and for people to say the last few months in office they started to drop, and now Trump is taking credit, is absurd. Obama did nothing for Americans IMO.


The numbers started dropping in 2013, so not the last few months of his term, but the entirety of his second term...



Yeah - dropping slightly after a massive increase.
The drop has now accelerated 5 fold - since Trump took office.

you do know why foreign investment is so high right now right?

it's because of Trumps policy on the devaluation of the dollar which coincidentally has been ongoing since his election in Nov.

but hey who cares about facts right?

wouldn't exect a Democrat to understand the economy

wait

it WAS Obama !!!

President Obama signs $8.7 billion food stamp cut into law

C-U-T !!





Cutting food stamps and then claiming people are getting off them is technically true, but it's not giving you a full picture of things. There's less money to go around, that just means people are going hungry... it doesn't mean they're self supporting.

Why are you measuring the success of public assistance by how many people use it, rather than how few?


Why do you consider either of those a valid metric? The numbers getting assistance aren't an indicator of how successful it is. The only valid indicator is if the help given is sufficient or not. For the majority of people, it's not.

And how many dropped off SNAP the last 9 months of Obama's administration?

Let's be honest with the numbers here.


and call it what it is - "more people starving in the US".


"Starving". There is SO MUCH help for the hungry in the US. No one is starving.

What if they aren't starving? What if they found some upward mobility and moved passed needing assistance? Isn't that what welfare is for?

Why are you measuring the success of public assistance by how many people use it, rather than how few?


I do wish people would look things up before opening their mouths - sigh.

NOTE this is 2015 before 1.1 million more taken off of assistance:


Hunger in the United States

The estimated percentage of U.S. households that were food insecure declined significantly in 2015 to 12.7 percent of U.S. households (15.8 million households, approximately one in eight). This is down significantly from 2014, when 14.0 percent of households (17.5 million households, approximately one in seven), were food insecure. It continues a downward trend from 14.9 percent food insecure in 2011, the highest percentage ever recorded. However the 2015 prevalence of food insecurity was still above the 2007 pre-recessionary level of 11.1 percent. (Food-insecure households (those with low and very low food security) had difficulty at some time during the year providing enough food for all their members due to a lack of resources.) In 2015, the percentage of households with food insecurity in the severe range—very low food security—also declined significantly. (Coleman-Jensen 2016b)

Hope God blesses all you good Christian folk with abundant and available food when you need help.

My statement stands. Starvation is NOT the same as "Food Insecure" or "Hunger". NO ONE in the United States is starving.

I like to keep myself fairy tale free.
