Since President Barack Obama took office, 15.2 million people have been added to the food stamp program. Thirty-seven percent of the present national debt has been accrued during his administration. Middle class income is down 5 percent. Under him we now have 9 million fewer jobs available in this country.
Forty percent of all newborn babies are on Medicaid. National home ownership is at a 20-year low. The national poverty rate for all previous administrations was about 15 percent; under Obama the rate has increased to a little over 17 percent. We have 101 million people receiving some sort of government aid, and only 97 million people working to support them.
Seventy-seven percent of all the jobs created since Obama has been president are part-time jobs. Today, 28.2 million people work in part-time jobs, the highest number of part-time jobs in our history. And now the Obama health care fiasco.
