We Now Have More Food Stamp Recipients Then Women Who Work Full Time

This is the economy President Obama and the Democrats built – more food stamp recipients than women working full time. Wonderful.

CNS News has the story:

People participating in the food stamp program outnumbered the women who worked full-time, year-round in the United States in 2012, according to data from the Department of Agriculture and the Census Bureau.

In the average month of 2012, according to the Department of Agriculture, there were 46,609,000 people participating in the food stamp program (formally known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program). That contrasts with the 44,059,000 women who worked full-time, year-round in 2012, according to the Census Bureau’s report on Income, Poverty and Health Insurance Coverage in the United States.

For each woman who worked full-time, year-round in 2012, there was slightly more than 1 other person collecting food stamps. (Read More)

The number of Americans on food stamps went up in 2013 to 47,636,000, but we won’t know how many women worked full time in 2013 until September. Recent news that more women are staying home (some due to the economy) suggests the number won’t improve.
