Do you think the over 100 million people on welfare are Obama supporters?

The numbers keep going up. With a dismal economy and Barack Obama's encouragement of people to keep on programs like food stamps, the increase in welfare recipients has been dramatic. According to the Census Bureau, there are over 100 million people on welfare.
about 12 million new people were added to the welfare rolls in just the two years from 2009 to 2011. AND... the total number of 108,000,000 does NOT include those receiving Social Security or Medicare.

Food stamps and Medicaid make up a large--and growing--chunk of the more than 100 million recipients. "Among the major means tested welfare programs, since 2000 Medicaid has increased from 34 million people to 54 million in 2011 and the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, or food stamps) from 17 million to 45 million in 2011," says the Senate Budget Committee. "Spending on food stamps alone is projected to reach $800 billion over the next decade."

    You betcha. And if you disagree I think you're kidding yourself. In fact, Obama even threw them a bone by ending the Welfare to Work program, replacing it with plain old get a check and do nothing welfare.

    bama is the food stamp king. Supporting people on welfare is not taking care of them. Its not getting them a job.
    I'd support more government jobs if they would give it to welfare folks. Give them a job and they take it or not get money.
    That would prove how many are on it because they can't find a job or don't want one.

    They even give away food stamps to the illegal aliens. That is one reason they don't want Voter ID laws. If they required ID to vote, the illegal aliens would not be able to vote.

    Wrong click, I think there are many people who are on some sort of government assistance that wish they could find work somewhere. As long as we have Obama there aren't going to be ant new jobs.

    That would depend on how long they have been there, or in other terms is it their way of life.

    1 in 6 Americans are on welfare, its illogical to believe they are all Democrats and completely impossible, take my state for instance 20 percent of people here get foodstamps and thats not counting those taking advantage of other welfare programs. Do you seriously think in a heavily Republican state that all 20 percent are Democrats? I can think of at least 4 people that I know are Republicans who get benefits and If I know that many Im sure there are at least thousands of more out there.

    Anyone that believes only Dems get welfare is out of touch with reality.

    Never mentioned Republicans or Democrats----the question was would the people on assistance support Obama
  • lucky CAPISCE 2012/08/12 14:10:49

    Logically if someone supports Obama they are more likely to be Democrat, my comment stands as is.
  • Hotcho lucky 2012/08/12 15:11:21

    my comment stands as is...Now that's out of touch with reality and a true Obama supporter..never listen to what anybody says..your own opinion is just more important..Obama the food stamp president..help people..don't continue to enslave them with a draconian principal

    Nothing you have said in your comment makes any sense in relation to mine, Im not an Obama supporter and its not just my opinion that the majority of people who support Obama are Democrats, its a fact. Im also very much against our current welfare system.

    So climb down off your high horse and get your facts straight before attempting to lecture someone you know nothing about.

    You make the assumption all welfare people are Democrats---interesting

    I didnt make that assumption at all, I know that to be false, most Obama supporters are Democrats, never said anything about most people on welfare being Democrats.

    But who's worried? If you don't have the gumption to get up off your rear and work, you probably aren't gonna bother to register and vote, either. Theoretically speaking. Who knows? Maybe they covet their "free ride" so much that they will in fact get up and vote.

    **Disclaimer: I DO understand that some people actually NEED the help and eventually get off it, but NOT the vast majority. I live and work where A LOT of people are on it and it is quite obvious that they have NO plans of stopping unless they are forced off.

    “A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world's greatest civilizations has been 200 years.”

    My family & I were on Welfare almost half my life & not a single 1 of us are Obama supporters. -_-
    When U sign up for Welfare, since when does the President cross ur mind? Has nothing to do with it, when ur desperate ur desperate. That's the end of that. My gosh humans are so judgmental/assuming, as if I'm shocked.

    So we should blame Obama for the sh*** state of the worlds economy - yet exclude the Bush economic poilicies - also Britian, Germany, Greece, Russia, China, Vietnam, S.Korea, etc. Blame consumers for NOT buying enough, Banks lending out/not lending out, greedy real estate peeps, energy producers, etc, etc, ad nausium?



    Because believe it or not Jay - and I don't know how much u follow global economics; Obama's & Bush's economic policies not only effect us - but the rest of the world as well, as can be said for the rest of the whole she-bang.



    In short; can we say; "Welcome to the vast Global Economy, where when France sneezes - even Equador gets the flu!??!??!?!?!?

    When you`re in between a rock and a hard place, You`ll do whatever it takes to take care of your family, Lot of people have been thrust into this situation by no fault of their own , The people they worked for was either forcibly shut down from policies of this regime or their own businesses were shutdown threw unnessary regulations and their life savings has dwindled out . There are no jobs, Intentionally so, This is the plan of the democrat party ,When we get them down ,We will hold them down till our goal is met. Dont look for any job increases under the Obama regime But all of those on food-stamps dont want to be there , Theyv`e just been given no other choice

    most of them are on welfare because they have no job and have children to feed including themselves.I'm sure that most would rather have a job to go to and they can think the president for that .I also think that most will not be voting for obama.

    Everything that "OBAMA" has done over the last few months is to get "VOTES". 1. He broke the law and omitted the work clause, 2, He backed "GAY" marriage, 3. He gave "AMNESITY" to millions, and all of these "OBAMA" broke the law by going around congress,,, ALL ARE TO GET "VOTES"
    KEEP IN MIND THAT "OBAMA" AND HIS CHICAGO CREW WILL DO ANYTHING TO REGAIN CONTROL OVER THE WHITE HOUSE, AND IF WE THE PEOPLE GAVE "OBAMA" ANOTHER FOUR YEARS, WE WILL LOOSE OUR "CONSTITUTION" "OBAMA" WILL PUT US UNDER THE CONTROL OF THE UNITIED NATION,,, (READ UP TREATIES THAT HE CAN SIGN) SOCIALIST

    After he gets re-elected, you may want to move to another country since we will loose our constitution! I might even pay the air fare for you.
