Barack Obama, the Disability President … Disabled Workers Hit New Record in December: 8,827,795
It’s an Obamanation … No wonder he is against right to work states, he seems to be adverse to jobs.
More records set by President Barack Obama. Disability benefits hit a record 8,827,795 in December 2012, up from 8,805,353 in November. Not only is Obama the Food Stamp president, he can now also be considered the Disability one as well. The problem is he cannot call himself the job growth president. How bad is it? In August 2012, only 16.2 people working for each person collecting disability. As compared in August 1967 when 65 Americans working for each worker collecting disability.
