    What is left out in this equation.

    Under Bush the increase occurred over 9 (NINE) years, not 3 (THREE) years assuming the numbers are correct. The (D)'s controlled Congress where budgets are written (and ignored) from 2007-2009.


    assuming numbers correct ds controlled congress budget written 2007-2009 source

    The rest of the data appears to be flawed and without proper citation. According to President Obama’s own FY 2011 budget request, total welfare spending would go to $953 billion, a 42% increase over welfare spending in FY 2008.

    Looks like a copy and paste.

    Here let me show you.


    The answer is: no time in US history, given the same interval has there been a higher number of Americans move into government dependency.

    Your uncited numbers don't speak to this fact.

    I understood Newt Gingrich, did you?

    Newt Gingrich is labeling Barack Obama as the "food stamp president."

    NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- A record 44.7 million people -- or 1 in 7 Americans -- were on food stamps last year. But does that make Barack Obama the "food stamp president?a a
    it states that
    a record of 44 million were on welfare it does not say that 44 million went on welfare under obama comprende!

    Yes I believe Newt is right and yes I understand in English and Spanish.

    Barack Obama has moved Americans to dependency more than any other president.

    Compare any other president at the 3 year mark and you will see it is true.
