Making America GREAT Again! 1.5 Million American off Food Stamps
Since leaving office, former president Barack Obama has been busy securing his legacy.
But here’s one way he will be remembered as the 44th American president:
Under his watch, people forced to live on food stamp soared 32%.
When he took office in 2009, there were 33.5 million people on food stamp.
Just a few month before he left office, that number had skyrocketed to 44.2 million.
That’s a massive jump of 10.7 million people.
Tax payers cost went from $50.3 billion to $66.6 billion.
While the Obama administration pushed the idea that the economy was booming while it wasn’t, the unemployment rate dropped (mainly because the Obama officials reducing the number of people considered in the “work force”), millions were forced onto food stamps.
So “hope and change” has been replaced by “Make America Great Again.”
New stats from the U.S. Department of Agriculture show that since President Trump took office in January 2017 nearly 1.5 million Americans have gotten off food stamp.
That’s 3.5% drop in less than a year.
Here are the monthly numbers.
January to February – 408,956
February to March – 95,152
March to April – 521,295
April to May- 176,527
May to June – 178,648
June to July – 236,417
