I wonder if Obama realizes the American people aren’t as dumb as he thinks they are?
“We should measure welfare’s success by how many people leave welfare, not by how many are added.”- Ronald Reagan
President Obama promised “hope” and “change” at every campaign stop in 2008. Like a broken record, the made-for-primetime candidate repeated the same mantra over and over again and urged people not to question how he would deliver on his promises, but to just purely accept his promises as gospel and in the voting booth, allow their feelings guide their decisions more than their thoughts.
Thus, America started down a perilous path previously trodden by Greece and Spain as we spent and spent and borrowed and borrowed and augmented the size and role of government at a feverish pace.
A new report illustrates the kind of “hope and change” we received as a nation- for 35 straight months now, more than 46 million Americans have been on food stamps.
