42 million people on food stamps. Is this the power of the roaring Trump economy?

  • No, this is power & policy of the democrats. The former fist lady came to our capitol and stated if you want to continue to receive your welfare & food stamps, get out & vote for the democratic governor. The democratic candidate received 93% of the votes in that city and was re-elected.

  • No, that is the improvement over the "roaring" Obozo economy under which the number of foodstamp recipients skyrocketed from 28 million to 46 million.

    "In 2008, the year before Obama took over the Presidency, there were 28 million Americans on food stamps and it was costing the country $37.6 billion. In 2015 under Obama, the number of individuals had increased to 46 million Americans with a total cost of $74.0 billion."

  • That's down substantially from the 47.6 million on food stamps in 2013 and the 44.2 million on food stamps in 2016..

    You're welcome!
