Welfare spending jumps 32% during Obama presidency

Obama is making everybody poorer in America. In order to control the voters, Obama needs to control them by making these suckers dependent on the government. This is not what our founding fathers wanted.

(WashingtonTimes)Federal welfare spending has grown by 32 percent over the past four years, fattened by President Obama’s stimulus spending and swelled by a growing number of Americans whose recession-depleted incomes now qualify them for public assistance, according to numbers released Thursday.

Federal spending on more than 80 low-income assistance programs reached $746 billion in 2011, and state spending on those programs brought the total to $1.03 trillion, according to figures from the Congressional Research Service and the Senate Budget Committee.

That makes welfare the single biggest chunk of federal spending — topping Social Security and basic defense spending.
