More Americans get food stamps than jobs

22 Sep
Here’s today’s COMMENT FROM AN OLD FART: Moi is an independent and frankly doesn’t like either of the choices for president. This is the Honey Boo Boo election. As an indie, moi finds the neither party is addressing the concerns of the peeps which are how in this depression do people feed their families and keep a roof over their heads. Citizens United has insured that both parties are cash gluttons which leaves the people who are living in a ‘cashless society’ out. For the out-of-touch rich folks, they are living in a ‘cashless society’ because they have NO cash. Here’s the latest outrage which will continue to be ignored until Citizens United is overturned and we have tougher ethical standards for elections and officeholders:
More Americans Added to Food Stamps Than Find Jobs
‘As the chart shows, between April-June 2012 (the most recent three month block for which government data is available), only 200,000 jobs have been created while 265,000 individuals have been added to the food stamp rolls. Additionally, in that time period, 246,000 workers were awarded disability.’
