CNS | Obamanomics: 11,269 more people on food stamps every day





Since taking office in 2009, food stamp rolls  under President Barack Obama have risen to more than 47 million people  in America, exceeding the population of Spain.

“Now is the time to act boldly and wisely – to not only revive this  economy, but to build a new foundation for lasting prosperity,” said Obama during his first joint session address to Congress on Feb. 24, 2009.

Since then, the number of participants enrolled in food  stamps, known as the Supplemental Assistance Nutrition Program (SNAP),  has risen substantially.

When Obama entered office in January 2009 there were 31,939,110 Americans receiving food stamps.  As of November 2012—the most recent data available—there were 47,692,896Americans enrolled, an increase of 49.3 percent.

According tothe 2011 census, Spain had a population of 46,815,916.

Furthermore, between January 2009 and November 2012 the food stamp program added approximately an average 11,269 recipients per day.
