Welcome to Obamaland: Food Stamp Recipients Outnumber Women Who Work Full-Time, Barack Obama … The Food Stamp President

Welcome to Barack Obama’s ‘Hope & Change’… welfare instead of jobs.

What happened to the country I grew up in, the Food Stamp edition. Since 1969 there has been a 1,552% increase in food stamp recipients. ARE YOU KIDDING!!! There were only 2,878,000 people on food stamps in 1969 as compared to the current 44,758,000. That is simply astonishing and unsustainable. The number of food stamp recipients has increased so much, that for 2012, the number of people participating in the food stamp program outnumbered the women who worked full-time, year-round in the United States.

Check out in the chart below the vertical red line increase of food stamp recipients since Obama took office in 2009. They don’t call Barack Obama the Food Stamp president for nothing. His moniker has been well earned. Also check out on the same chart the stagnate blue line of woman who work full time under Obama’s administration. This is Obamanomics and the real war on woman. Obama has been nothing more than an EPIC FAILURE!!! America, we better right this ship before it is too late.

FOOD STAMP BENEFICIARIES AND FULL-TIME FEMALE WORKERS-CHART 1

CNS News:

People participating in the food stamp program outnumbered the women who worked full-time, year-round in the United States in 2012, according to data from the Department of Agriculture and the Census Bureau.

In the average month of 2012, according to the Department of Agriculture, there were 46,609,000 people participating in the food stamp program (formally known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program). That contrasts with the 44,059,000 women who worked full-time, year-round in 2012, according to the Census Bureau’s report on Income, Poverty and Health Insurance Coverage in the United States.

For each woman who worked full-time, year-round in 2012, there was slightly more than 1 other person collecting food stamps.

In 2013, the average number of people on food stamps increased to 47,636,000. The Census Bureau will not publish its report on Income, Poverty and Health Insurance Coverage for 2013, which includes the data on women working full-time, until September.

The Department of Agriculture’s website lists the annual average number of food stamps participants going back to 1969. That year, there were only 2,878,000 people on food stamps. Since then, food stamps participants have increased by 44,758,000—or about 1,552 percent.

Protein Wisdom opines on some not so good coincidences between the Carter and Obama presidencies. Why exactly did you reelect this disaster?

For those into trivia, those three years (and 2013 is likely to join them as the fourth) took place under the Carter and Obama Administrations.

As did the ruthless arrogance of Muslim extremists and Communist Russians.

Again, probably just a coincidence — and even if it’s not, Obama’s reelection proves that women and minorities love them some other people’s shit, and don’t much care if that turns them, effectively, into slaves of the state.  Because they’ve been empowered by “self-esteem,” which allows them to justify and rationalize away their own near-permanent state of being.

Contrary to what Americans were Told … The CBO Says Obamacare Is Slowing Growth & Will Kill the Equivalent 2.5 Million Jobs in America Over the Next Decade

OBAMACARE IS THE GREATEST HOAX AND FRAUD THAT HAS EVER BEEN PERPETRATED UPON THE AMERICAN PEOPLE …

Not only is the Affordable Healthcare Act not affordable, it is also not the job creator that it was promised to be. As reported at The Hill, according to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) said today that Obamacare is likely to kill 2.5 million jobs, while slowing overall economic growth over the next decade. This colossal fiasco is a nightmare for Americans and for America. The CBO also projected that “as a result of the ACA, between 6 million and 7 million fewer people will have employment-based insurance coverage each year from 2016 through 2024 than would be the case in the absence of the ACA.” This from the government’s own bean counters. Folks, you might want to remember this during the 2014 midterm elects as O-care was passed 100% by Democrats with 0% GOP support.

Obama_laughing2

Those gullible fools believed that it was affordable, they believed it was a job creator, hahahahaha …

The new healthcare law will cost the nation the equivalent of 2.5 million workers in the next decade, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) estimated in a report released Tuesday.

The nonpartisan agency found the reform law’s negative effects on employment would be “substantially larger” than what it had previously anticipated.

It said the equivalent of 2.3 million workers would be lost by 2021, compared to its previous estimate of 800,000, and that 2.5 million workers would be lost by 2024. It also projected that labor force compensation would be reduced by 1 percent from 2017 to 2024 — twice its previous estimate.

Although the CBO projects that total employment and compensation will increase over the coming decade, that increase will be smaller than it would have been in the absence of the healthcare law.

The findings immediately roiled the debate over the healthcare law on Capitol Hill ahead of this year’s midterm elections.

Full CBO Report.

Remember when then Speaker of the House Nanacy Pelosi (CA-D) told us that Obamacare was not just about health security but it was also about jobs? She stated that Obamacare  was a job creator and would create 4 million jobs and 400,000 jobs immediately? LIAR!!! You can watch the longer version of Pelosi’s lies on Obamacare HERE. What a pack of lies these people told to the American people and it was this fraud, along with other that got Barack Obama, the worst president in modern times, reelected.

CBO Delivers Sends Death Blow to Obamacare … you live by the CBO and you die by it as well.

Is Barack Obama Really Make Income Inequality a Main Topic at SOTU Address When it Has Increased Under his Presidency? Income Gap Widened Under Obama

Like everything Barack Obama has touched or claims he wants to make better, has become worse under his presidency …

The Divider in Chief Barack Obama is back to his old games of blaming the rich for the evils of society. What else is Obama going to do when he is an abject failure who has only made matters worse since he has been in office? Obama rails about income inequality and that it is the worse problem of out time, yet he is responsible for making the gap wider. From the president who makes class warfare part of his daily agenda and who claims he is for the common man, while demonizing the rich, Barack Obama has widened the income gap during his presidency turning the gap into a canyon.

Obama_income_inequality_Fox News

Click on pic to watch VIDEO of the income gap under Obama

Income inequality — the gap between the rich and poor — is an issue U.S. presidents of both parties have spoken of for years.

President Clinton touted, toward the end of his term, that wages were rising “at all income levels” for the first time in decades. President George W. Bush, toward the end of his, pondered the best way to respond to income inequality, noting some policies “lift people up” and some “tear others down.”

But perhaps no president has hammered the issue as emphatically as President Obama.

In his 2012 State of the Union address, Obama said: “The defining issue of our time is how to keep that promise alive. No challenge is more urgent. No debate is more important. We can either settle for a country where a shrinking number of people do really well, while a growing number of Americans barely get by, or we can restore an economy where everyone gets a fair shot, and everyone does their fair share, and everyone plays by the same set of rules.”

But a look back shows that income inequality has grown, not shrunk, under the current president.

“All told, income inequality has tended to get worse under President Obama,” American Enterprise Institute President Arthur Brooks said.

Obama_income_inequality_Fox News2

According to a recent FOX News poll, Barack Obama polls miserably on doing his job on the issue of income inequality. 52% disapprove with how Obama has handled income inequality and only 39% approve. So with Obama failing at an issue he claims to care about, how does he even have the audacity to bring the issue up at the State of the Union Address? Obama’s economic policies have made things worse for those lower income earners, while he has made the Wall Street fat cats richer. Hmm, but I thought Obama hated the rich? Obama has falsely propped up the stock markets thanks to the fed’s quantitative easing which only made the top 5% and 1% more and more money. It is those folks who can afford to take risks in the markets. However, for the average people who Obama claims to care about and tries to talk a good game, according to the recent Fox poll, 74% still feel like the country is in a recession. But don’t worry America, Obama has the answer to fixing income inequality … raising the minimum wage. Good grief, really! With so many people unemployed or underemployed, with so many Americans on food stamps and with so many people having just given up and not even in the labor force, why wouldn’t the gap be larger? When a Democrat party sets out to create a government dependent class of people, why is it that much of a surprise that the gap widens? Recessions affect the middle and lower classes the most.

U.S. income inequality, on rise for decades, is now highest since 1928.

Using tax-return data from the IRS, Saez has built extensive income-distribution datasets going back 100 years. He defines “income” as pre-tax cash market income — wages and salaries; dividends, interest, rent and other returns on invested capital; business profits; and realized capital gains. He excludes Social Security payments, unemployment benefits and other government transfer payments, which are more substantial today than before the Great Depression.

In 1928, the top 1% of families received 23.9% of all pretax income, while the bottom 90% received 50.7%. But the Depression and World War II dramatically reshaped the nation’s income distribution: By 1944 the top 1%’s share was down to 11.3%, while the bottom 90% were receiving 67.5%, levels that would remain more or less constant for the next three decades.

But starting in the mid- to late 1970s, the uppermost tier’s income share began rising dramatically, while that of the bottom 90% started to fall. The top 1% took heavy hits from the dot-com crash and the Great Recession but recovered fairly quickly: Saez’s preliminary estimates for 2012 (which will be updated next month) have that group receiving nearly 22.5% of all pretax income, while the bottom 90%’s share is below 50% for the first time ever (49.6%, to be precise).

Snarf’s Sub Shop in Chicago That Was Target of Union Thugs Demanding $15 an Hour Shuts Down & Fires Its Employees Via Email Just Days Before Christmas

Question to the ‘Fight for 15′ crowd … which is better $9.50 an hour or $0.00?

Snarf’s Sub Shop in Chicago has closed it’s doors and fired all of their staff just days before Christmas via email. Snarf’s was the target of the SEIU and was closed for four days, from December 5 until December 8, as employees went on striking demanding $15 an hour and better benefits. Now they are all out of work just before the holidays. From the files of, don’t ask for things they might just come true.  So hows that strike and forcing your employer to shut down working out for you now?

You want to be paid $15/hr to make a sandwich, are you kidding?

Union_fight for 15

Wonder how the guy with the FF15 Victory … Snarf’s Shut Down sign feels about now?

A Chicago sandwich shop has fired all of its 20 staff over email just two days before Christmas.

Staff at Snarf’s Sub Shop in River North received the bad news on Sunday night in a group email notifying them that the drastic action was effective immediately.

The company blamed ‘increased competition and losses’ for the firings.

Director of operations Doug Besant said in the email the restaurant will likely close for a month as they remodel and reconcept the business into a burger joint.

But the move comes less than a month after Snarf’s workers rallied for higher wages.

The email, obtained by ChicagoGrid.com, read: ‘Due to increased competition and losses, ownership has decided to consider remodeling and reconcepting the store at 600 West Chicago Ave.

The sandwich shop claims that the firings were not a retaliation for their strike. So what if they were? Chicago fast-food, retail workers join in nationwide protest over wages. Honestly, if my business was hanging on by a thread and individuals picketed by business forcing me to shut down for days, they all would have been fired then. Sorry, making sandwiches is not a $15 a hr. job. Hmm, Chicago is a union town eh, so was Detroit, how are they doing these days?

Clustered around a giant, bright green “Grinch,” the protesters — part of a “100-city strike wave”— are demanding a $15-an-hour wage and the right to form a union without retaliation.

“Chicago is a union town!” they chanted outside Snarf’s Sandwiches, 600 W. Chicago, one of several stops during a planned daylong demonstration in the city.

The group was expected to include workers from McDonald’s, Subway, CVS Pharmacy, Sears — among other companies.

CNN Poll: What Obama Job Revovery … Only 24% Believe That an Economic Recovery is Under Way

Remember when President Barack Obama spoke of the job recovery that was under way … Neither do most Americans!

During Barack Obama first State of the Union Address in 2009 he stated the following: “It’s an agenda that begins with jobs. As soon… As soon as I took office.” Instead he focused 100% on passing Obamacare against the will of the people.

According to the most recent CNN poll, not only is Barack Obama struggling with low job approval numbers and trust issues on Onamacare, with regards to the #1 issue facing Americas today, the economy, 59% things are going badly, only a mere 24% believe the economic recovery is under way. Exactly how long has Obama been making that promise? And instead of making jobs the number one issue, he goes out of his way to destroy jobs with over-regulation and  his healthcare and energy agenda. Obamacare has caused business to fire individuals or reduce the jobs from full-time to part-time. An his energy policies are doing their best to destroy the coal industry in the United States.

Obama_Failure

Americans views on the state of the nation are turning increasingly sour, according to a new national poll.

And a CNN/ORC International survey released Friday also indicates that less than a quarter of the public says that economic conditions are improving, while nearly four in ten say the nation’s economy is getting worse.

Forty-one percent of those questioned in the poll say things are going well in the country today, down nine percentage points from April, and the lowest that number has been in CNN polling since February 2012.Fifty-nine percent say things are going badly, up nine points from April.

Besides an obvious partisan divide, which contributes to a urban-rural gap, the survey also indicates a difference of opinion between younger and older Americans.

So its not just Obamacare that Americans are dissatisfied with Barack Obama. It is coming from all directions and at some point it will reach the point of no return, if it already hasn’t.

The 2012 State of the Union:

Yea, imagine if we actually did what Obama promised and did oil exploration in the US and made dependency on Middle East oil a thing of the past. Imagine if we regulated less and allowed the American industrial machine to take off. Imagine if we allowed for increases in nuclear, clean coal, oil, natural gas and the dreaded fracking

Imagine what we could accomplish if we followed their example. Think about the America within our reach: A country that leads the world in educating its people. An America that attracts a new generation of high-tech manufacturing and high-paying jobs. A future where we’re in control of our own energy, and our security and prosperity aren’t so tied to unstable parts of the world. An economy built to last, where hard work pays off, and responsibility is rewarded.

2011 State of the Union:

The very small business jobs that Obama is touting are the very one’s that Obamacare is destroying.

But we have never measured progress by these yardsticks alone. We measure progress by the success of our people. By the jobs they can find and the quality of life those jobs offer. By the prospects of a small business owner who dreams of turning a good idea into a thriving enterprise. By the opportunities for a better life that we pass on to our children.

2010 State of the Union:

This recession has also compounded the burdens that America’s families have been dealing with for decades – the burden of working harder and longer for less; of being unable to save enough to retire or help kids with college. [Save enough? How are Americans supposed to save with the increase in energy costs, the price at the pump and high premium costs of Obamacare? Let along college ids can't get jobs.]

The plan that has made all of this possible, from the tax cuts to the jobs, is the Recovery Act. That’s right – the Recovery Act, also known as the Stimulus Bill. Economists on the left and the right say that this bill has helped saved jobs and avert disaster. But you don’t have to take their word for it. [Yea, how did that "Hopey-Changey" stimulus waste of tax payers money work out for you America?]

That is why jobs must be our number one focus in 2010, and that is why I am calling for a new jobs bill tonight.[What was his #1 focus, jobs or Obamacare?]

2009 State of the Union:

You don’t need to hear another list of statistics to know that our economy is in crisis, because you live it every day. It’s the worry you wake up with and the source of sleepless nights. It’s the job you thought you’d retire from but now have lost, the business you built your dreams upon that’s now hanging by a thread, the college acceptance letter your child had to put back in the envelope.

The impact of this recession is real, and it is everywhere. [Hmm, doesn't it sound like Barack is talking about the affects of Obamacare on families and businesses?]

CNBC’s Maria Bartiromo Says ObamaCare Forcing America to Become a Part-Time Employment Country as Businesses Shift to Part-Time Workers

The heck with the Obamacare website glitches, Obamacare has much worse consequences on America and Americans … Obamacare is a full-time job killer.

CNBC’s Maria Bartiromo said on ‘Meet the Press’ on Sunday that “ObamaCare is forcing businesses to shift to part-time workers.” She went on to say that America was “becoming something of a part-time employment country.” However, no one in the MSM wants to address the fact that Obama’s signature piece of legislation is causing American workers to lose their full-time jobs. Isn’t that special, in order for a small minority of people to have access to insurance, all Americans are forced to buy insurance or else pay a tax, and workers are losing money in their pay checks as businesses shift to a part-time work model. Thanks Barack Obama.

Intentional or irony … Obama’s signature piece of legislation kills FT jobs and affects the middle class, the very people he claims to be for? Is it any wonder why Obama is the worst jobs president in modern times.

Maria Bartiromo is sadly100% correct. Check out Zero Hedge, where of the 953,000 jobs created in 2013, 77%, or 731,000 are part-time ones. Many businesses are are now only hiring PT employees in order to avoid Obamacare or are shifting those that were full-time to part-time. Who didn’t see that coming?

Obamanomics: People in Poverty Up 6,667,000 … Record 46,496,000 Now Poor … Median Income Down Nearly 5% to $2,627

Hey America, hoes that “Hopey-Changey” stuff working out for you?

Thanks to President Barack Obama and his disastrous economic policy, median income is down 4.89% or $2627 and poverty is up to a record 46,496,000. But Barack Obama will tell you he is for the little guy and the middle class. Sure he is. What a disaster this man has been to the United States and its people. It is going to take decades for this country to undo the damage he and Democrats have done. It is mind boggling how he was ever reelected with such a totally epic failure of the economy, jobs and, unemployment.

Obama_Epic_Fail

During the four years that marked President Barack Obama’s first term in office, the real median income of American households dropped by $2,627 and the number of people in poverty increased by approximately 6,667,000, according to data released today by the Census Bureau.

The record total of approximately 46,496,000 people in the United States who are now in poverty, according to the Census Bureau, is more than twice the population of Syria, which, according to the CIA, has 22,457,336 people.

In 2008, the year Obama was elected, real median household income in the United States was $53,644 according to the Census Bureau. In 2012, the last full year of Obama’s first term, median household income was $51,017. Thus, real median household income dropped $2,627—or 4.89 percent—from 2008 to 2012.

Teen Employment Hits Record Lows Under Barack Obama Presidency … Great Depression for Teens

Can’t blame this one on George W. Bush … How can Obama actually says he cares?

How’s that “Hopey-Changey” thing working out for your teens in America? Thanks to Barack Obama, we are witness to a Great Depression for teens. How is it that young people are for Barack Obama when none of them can get a job thanks to is moronic handling of the economy? And they have nothing better to look forward to when they leave their teens as well. Obama has been a disaster for the economy and jobs. He constantly says that he is focused like a laser on creating jobs, but continues to be an epic failure. The teen employment numbers get even worse when you look at race. When comparing June and July 2000 and the same two months of 2013 … in 2000, 61.28% of white teens 16 to 19 held a job, a number that fell to 39.25% this summer. But for African-Americans, the number that was completely pathetic.  In 2000, 33.91% of 16 to 19 year old’s holding a job, fell to a staggering low of 19.25 percent this June and July. Good grief, that should be criminal. If Obama was nit black the NAACP would be marching in the streets. Obama has been a disgrace to the black community, yet they support him like he actually cared.

These job numbers border of child abuse.

Obama_teens

Obama shakes the hands of unemployed teens

For the fourth consecutive summer, teen employment has stayed anchored around record lows, prompting experts to fear that a generation of youth is likely to be economically stunted with lower earnings and opportunities in years ahead.

The trend is all the more striking given that the overall unemployment rate has steadily dropped, to 7.4 percent in August. And employers in recent months have been collectively adding almost 200,000 new jobs a month. It led to hopes that this would be the summer when teen employment improved.

In 1999, slightly more than 52 percent of teens 16 to 19 worked a summer job. By this year, that number had plunged to about 32.25 percent over June and July. It means that slightly more than three in 10 teens actually worked a summer job, out of a universe of roughly 16.8 million U.S. teens.

“We have never had anything this low in our lives. This is a Great Depression for teens, and no time in history have we encountered anything like that,” said Andrew Sum, director of the Center for Labor Market Studies at Northeastern University in Boston. “That’s why it’s such an important story.”

Is is any wonder why Barack Obama wants to start a war with Syria and take the focus off of his dismal domestic policies, record, failures and scandals?

Barack Obama Creates More PT Jobs for Americans … Illinois Pays Workers $9 An Hour To Sign People Up For Obamacare

Illinois pays workers $9/hr. for part time job to enroll people in Obamacare and plan on giving them three days training …

President Barack Obama creates jobs for Americans, however, they they are once again part time ones. Illinois workers are paid $9 an hour to sign people up for Obamacare. That’s correct, more part time jobs as a result of Obamacare. This must be more of those great jobs that Obama promised Americans. Weasel Zippers reminds us that the payment for these temp jobs is just $0.75 above minimum wage. Two things that I find rather comical about this call for job applicants. The story states that those hired will get 3 days if training on health insurance, enrollment and other “complicated aspects” of Obamacare. THREE DAYS!!! Wow, how about three months? To this day nobody has a clue as to what this ridiculous, train-wreck” law is about and the people who are to sign you up and enroll you get a whopping three days of training. What a joke. Better yet, take a look at the position of project coordinator, of which it appears there is only one of those positions. It requires some one  with experience in community organizing and public speaking. In other words, it is what Barack Obama is qualified to do as a job, not President of the United States.

Obama_Jobs

Talk about your double Obama whammie … Obamacare and jobs, two Obama failures

Working on a tight timeframe, Illinois is building an 800-person army of temporary workers to help people sign up for health insurance coverage under the Affordable Care Act.

The “in-person counselor” jobs, located in every corner of the state, range from a $9-an-hour part-time evening job in Clinton County to a $45,000-a-year project coordinator position in Chicago for someone with experience in community organizing and public speaking.

The workers will help consumers apply for coverage, and will answer questions and explain differences between the insurance policies offered on the new online marketplace. They will help consumers figure out if they’re eligible for Medicaid or for new tax credits that will help many people pay for coverage.

Job applications are being collected online and anyone hired will get three days of training about health insurance, enrollment rules and other complicated aspects of the health law. Illinois must act quickly to be ready for Oct. 1, the first day of enrollment for the law’s new insurance opportunities.

Honestly, how well versed and knowledgeable could anyone be getting paid $9 an hour and only receiving 3 days of training for a law to help others and answer questions when politicians have been dealing with this for years and still could not tell you whats in Obamacare?
