    More bad news, but will it be mentioned in the mainstream media?

    People getting benefits. According to the Census Bureau 49% now live in homes where at least one person gets a federal benefit — Social Security, workers comp, unemployment, subsidized housing, and the like. That's up from 44% the year before Obama took office, and way up from 1983, when fewer than a third were government beneficiaries.

    The increase is due to obama's changing policy by allowing more people on the government dependency programs.

    The rise in numbers is due to obamas lowering the standards for allowing people onto the government programs.

    Bullshit!
    It's due to Boomers retiring after paying into SS all their lives and maimed veterans from Bush's unnecessary war in Iraq.

    Bullshit as usual.

    If the dishonest right-wing extremist Investors Business Daily, who have absolutely no credibility whatsoever, could have gotten such a dramatic increase without using retirees and disabled vets they would have.

    There are probably in the neighborhood of 50,000 new disabled vets as a result of the Bush/Cheney war for oil.

    Plus thousands more from the Reagan/Bush war for oil number 1.

    Disabled vets are expensive big time so be it. They did not ask to be disabled therefore we take care of them and give them no shit.

    The Bush/Cheney home loan fraud scam sent 11 million out of jobs. Then some of their employers skipped the country yet still receive USA tax benefits.

    Because the highly exalted job creators sent all the jobs that those people could do to China in search of cheap labor and ever greater profits.

    Perhaps you should do some homework on food stamp requirements. Being unemployed is one good reason to get food stamps. Bush/Cheney put 11 million out of work. Now it is the governments responsibility to keep food on table by bringing tax dollars home.

    Taxpayers deserve assistance after all it is their money!
