The United States’ economic recovery continues to put more Americans onto public assistance, instead of back to work. A report by CNS News provides some eye-opening statistics about just how much things have “changed” from four years ago:

During President Obama’s first term, the number of persons taking federal food stamps, formally known as the Supplemental Assistance Nutrition Program (SNAP), increased by approximately 11,133 persons per day.

When Obama was inaugurated in January 2009, the number of SNAP recipients was 31,939,110. By October 2012, the latest month reported, they had jumped to 47,525,329.

That means the food stamp program grew by an of approximately 11,133 recipients per day from January 2009 to October 2012.

A number of recent articles involving the food stamp or SNAP assistance program shows that millions of Americans are being lured onto the government dole, instead of being allowed to get back to work:

With recoveries like these, who needs the good times? The sad part is that with a Congress that refuses to consider entitlement reform as a part of any debt restructuring, expect to see more scintillating economic numbers like these until progressives are removed from office.
