There are more people on food stamps than the total number of working women. Obama and his ilk continue to say the nation is in a recovery but how can that be with record numbers of Americans on govt assistance and unemployed? Entitlements are like a drug too, once people get on the system it’s very hard to get them off. Granted there are many who don’t want to be on assistance but there is a large segment who have actually done the math and realized it is better for them to be on food stamps and unemployment rather than get a job (the few that are available). Keep in mind these people vote and they will vote to keep politicians who enable them in power. Our entitlement system was never designed to sustain such high numbers of people for an extend length of time. All these programs were meant for the short-term it is unsustainable and the system will collapse.
