Barack Obama … The Food Stamp & Disability President … The Total Number of people in US Receiving Federal Disability Benefits Hits a Record High in December, 2013

 

Not only is Barack Obama the Food Stamp president, he is the Disability president as well … So this is what “Hope & Change ” looks like.

More records for Barack Obama not to be proud of.  CNS is reporting that the total number of Americans receiving federal disability benefits hits a record high of 10,988,269 in December, 2013. That was up from the previous record set in November of this year. Also, the average monthly benefit paid to a disabled worker also hit a record of $1,146.43 in December. What else are individuals going to do except go on food stamps and disability when the economy stinks. Thus, the real reason the the unemployment number is decreasing. It has nothing to do with people getting jobs, but everything to do with people no longer looking for employment.

Disability v Jobs

The total number of people in the United States now receiving federal disability benefits hit a record 10,988,269 in December, up from the previous record of 10,982,920 set in November, according to newly released data from the Social Security Administration.

The average monthly benefit paid to a disabled worker also hit a record of $1,146.43 in December, up from a previous high of $1,130.34 in December of last year.

Spouses of disabled workers also got a record average monthly benefit of $308.13 in December, up from a previous high of $304.31 in August. Children of disabled workers also received a record average monthly benefit of $341.42 in December, up from a previous high of $337.13 in May.

As CNSNews.com reported earlier this month, the number of Americans getting disability benefits now exceeds the entire population of Greece, which is 10,772,967, according to the CIA World Factbook.

But wait, how can record number of Americans still be increasing on disability and food stamps … I thought the recession was over? Barack Obama is killing this country.

      Mostly an accounting move by states. Social services are paid at state and county level, disability at Fed level. I’d bet red states lead the way as usual, as they tend to rake in more Fed dough than they contribute. As for economy: wealthy should be kissing Obama’s ring, as stock market has recovered all Bush era losses and hit new highs.

      SM: Yep, thanks to QE the rich got richer and the divide in income has become greater. This from the President who claims to be for the middle class.

      And I thought it was the Republicans who cozied up to to rich. At least that is what Obama and Democrats say.

      In real dollars (1937) the Stock Market is less than $1,000. All the rest is created by inflation.

      The Democrats are all about getting people dependent on the state for income. It is just another vote buying scheme. All unconstitutional.
