  • Most States Wave Work Requiremnt For Food Stamps

    We're creating a dependent generation, thanks to Ali Obama.

    Most states still are waiving work requirements for those on food stamps, raising concerns that despite an improving job market the Obama administration is feeding government dependency -- and all at the expense of taxpayers.

    Forty-four of the 50 states have to some degree eased work requirements for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), also known as food stamps: 30 states grant waivers state-wide, while another 14 issue partial waivers in areas of high unemployment.
    "The explosion of enrollment on SNAP of able-bodied adults without requiring work is a recipe for long-term dependency, and is hurting the country's economic recovery," said Senior Fellow at the Foundation for Government Accountability (FGA) Josh Archambault, whose group obtained the numbers.


    Supporters of waiving work requirements counter that there still aren't enough jobs out there.

    Jobs continue to "disappear" ...

    US job layoffs reach highest level in 4 years

    EXCERPT:
    Challenger, Gray & Christmas has released its monthly job cuts for July, and it is ugly. The 105,696 job cuts was the highest number since 2011. To put this in perspective, the July job cuts total is a whopping 136% higher than the 44,842 job cuts reported in June, as well as 125% higher than the in same report a year ago.

    The July report showed that the last time more than 100,000 job cuts were announced was back in September 2011, when there were some 115,730 layoffs.

    Another bad trend is that July's surge now brings the year-to-date job cuts up to a total of 393,368. That is 34% higher than the run rate for the same period in 2014. Also, this is the highest seven-month total since 2009, and that was effectively before the jobs recovery started in the recession.

      Well, if you want voters to vote Progressive the surest way to get them is put them on the government dole and make them renters...

      Self sufficient owners won't normally vote Progressive because it is not in their best interest to have a government that wants to raise their taxes and take away what they earned.

        Welcome to welfare world. Soon we will be like Britain, now into it's third or fourth generation of people on the dole who have never worked, nor did their fathers, nor their fathers and in some cases not even their fathers.

        And the idiot-in-chief wonders why all of the social unrest...
