Chart of the day: America the Dependent

In April, I reported on the Obama FoodStampCorps’s mission to enroll countless more food-stamp beneficiaries.

Looks like they’re accomplishing their mission of dependency in spectacular fashion.

Kenneth Schortgen Jr at The Examiner reports on fresh SNAP/USDA data:

Food stamp usage by the American people reached a new high last month as more than 44 million people relied upon the government benefit to purchase necessary groceries for their families.

A new chart issued by the Supplimental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) on May 31st showed that just under 14.5% of the American public received food stamp benefits that averaged $133.24 per person.

…In 2010, the total number of people on the SNAP food stamp program was a little over 40 million, and in the first five months of this year, that number has grown over 10%. Continued unemployment, and lack of jobs in the economy have led more people to require food stamps to suppl[e]ment their monthly bills, especially as price inflation continues to grow at a faster pace.

… This growth in a program that cost the government over $64 Billion in 2010, will add to the fiscal burden already being experienced by Washington who needs to find ways to cut spending.

Winning the Future(TM), Obama-style.
