    But his blame of Obama for it has already been proven to be way off

    PolitiFact | Newt Gingrich defends calling Barack Obama "food stamp president"

    You attempt at a red herring has failed, Newt's claim is false, very false. Food stamp cards can't be used for just anything.

    And the reason our economy is in the crapper?

    The Current ReaganBush Debt is:
    $14,182,295,222,725.30
    which means that in a total of 20 years,
    these three presidents have led to the creation of
    93.81%
    of the entire national debt.


    Prove that's wrong. Prove that President Obama is responsible for more than 8%.

    What Newt stupidly bragged about, being part of the tinkle down debacle, was the start of this mess. Sorry pubs and bags but its the truth and you know it.

    The difference between Newt and our president is that Obama is working to improve the lot of all of America while Newt is owned, lock, stock and barrel by the 1%.

    With thanks to the poster who included this in his/her sigs.

    Who sends you libs out with all these stupid talking points? Man, I've hit this topic on a number of boards tonight.

    Politfact should have googled. Maybe they would learn something. And who the heck made them the fact checkers almighty?

    WSJ: Millionaires Collecting Food Stamps

    Thursday, 23 Jun 2011 08:10 AM

    By Forrest Jones


    Millionaires qualify for food stamps these days as long as they can show they have little or no income, author and lecturer James Bovard says.

    Thirty five states have scrapped asset requirements, which means almost anyone can buy groceries under the auspices of the United States Department of Agriculture's program for hungry Americans.

    "The Obama administration is far more enthusiastic about boosting food-stamp enrollment than about preventing fraud," Bovard writes in a Wall Street Journal column.

    "Thanks in part to vigorous federally funded campaigns by nonprofit groups, the government's AmericaCorps service program, and other organizations urging people to accept government handouts, the number of food-stamp recipients has soared to 44 million from 26 million in 2007, and costs have more than doubled to $77 billion from $33 billion."

    Food stamps, known officially as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), have been the target of abuse even before Obama took office; the number of food-stamp recipients on George W. Bush's watch rose by more than 50 percent, Bovard says.


    And here's the author's key point and this should scare the crap out of anyone.

    Plus enforcement is need, as only 40 inspectors oversee almost 200,000 merchants who accept food stamps nationwide.

    40 freaking inspectors? You're begging for abuse.

    What they don't want changed is that income and wealth are taxed differently and wealth is harder to track.

    The system is rigged and the pubs and bags don't know they're just dupes.
