A record 23,116,928 American households were enrolled in the federal government’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)—AKA food stamps—during the month of June, according to data released this month by the Department of Agriculture.

That outnumbers the 20,618,000 households that the Census Bureau estimated were in the entire Northeastern United States as of the second quarter of 2013.

According to the Census Bureau, the Northeast region includes Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. Thus, in June, the households receiving food stamps exceeded the total combined households in all of these states.

The 23,116,928 million households on food stamps in June also outnumbered the 15,030,000 home-owning households in the entire Western United States in the second quarter of the year and the 18,018,000 home-owning households in the entire Midwest.

The West, as delineated by the Census Bureau, includes Washington, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Oregon, California, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Arizona, New Mexico, Alaska and Hawaii. So, the number of households taking food stamps in June outnumbered all of the home-owning households in all of these stated combined.

The Midwest includes North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan, Indiana and Ohio. So, the number of households on food stamps in June also outnumbered all the home-owning households in this set of states.

(According to the Census Bureau, in the second quarter of 2013, there were 20,618,000 households in the Northeast United States, including 13,021 households that owned their residence and 7,597 that rented. In the Midwest, there were 25,944,000 households, including 18,108 that owned and 7,926,000 that rented. In the West, there 25,322,000 households, including 15,030,000 that owned and 10,293 that rented. And, in the South, there 42,794,000 households, including 28,475,000 that owned and 14,318,000 that rented.)

The record 23,116,928 households on food stamps in June also equaled 20.16 percent—or more than one-fifth--of all 114,663,000 households nationwide in the United States as of June, according to the Census Bureau.

The 23,116,928 household on food stamps in June was an increase of 45,908 from the 23,071,020 household on food stamps in May.

In fiscal 2009, the year President Barack Obama was inaugurated, there was a monthly average of 15,161,469 American households on food stamps, according to the Department of Agriculture. The 23,116,928 households on food stamps in June exceeded that 2009 monthly average by 7,955,459 households—or 52 percent.

Thus, in America in June, there were 52 percent more households on Food Stamps than there were in the average month of the first year President Obama took office.
Thank you for your charity Obama.This must be how the Democrats keep their voters.

That is the results of the recession that Obama inherited from Bush when he took office. If the recession didn't happen in 2007, maybe those numbers would be smaller.

No matter what you may think, Obama inherited a recession left to him thanks to Bush. Remember, it all falls on the president, he is the top gun, he is the reason anything and everything happens. Or is that only when a democrat is president? If it is a republican as president, you can blame someone else, right?

No we needed a president not a slight of hand magician,which is what we have now.

Obama ran on fixing the economy,transparency and reach across the isle to solve problems,he has done none of the above.

If you were a fireman and went to put out a fire, do you pour water on it or do you add more fuel to the fire.

The Obummer and his pals have added more fuel to the fire. To the tune of trillions upon trillions of dollars taking advantage of a crisis in epic proportions.

That was and is his plan. To "transform" America. That, he has done.

yeah they are and Obama doubled this nations debt in his first term what took 43 other presidents to reach.

He is a magician,he magically double it in one term when he was saying as a senator from illinois that it was irresponsible to reasie the debt ceiling and increase this nations debt.

Your right, he couldn't fix it and should have not been re-elected. Hopefully the GOP will bring a better candidate to the table that can keep his mouth shut when he talks about stuff that will hurt his chances of getting more votes.

No, Romney found out if you put down voters, you will not get elected. He shot himself in the foot. He loss be cause he didn't know what to say and when not to say something. The guy was an idiot for making some of the comments he made. But then again, like any politician, they don't know when to shut up and keep certain things to themselves.

Those people were not gonna vote for him anyways.That is what he was talking about when he was secretly recorded.

So you would rather have a bullsh!ter in office than someone that can speak the truth.I guess that is why we have Barry Soetero.This guy wont even release his school records and isnt even a natural born citizen.(due to his father not being a citizen.)

STALIN did the Exact same thing as he shaped the Soviet Union into Nationalism then became a socialist country

The population will do what ever you want with enough hunger and pain.
IRONIC really for the United State's with Ocean's of food. Grown for others. It's Embezzlement. Check the price on a loaf of bread or if you go to dinner to nite.

Check the ala-cart price on the menu for { 1 } Egg. About $2.50

The food stamp or EBT is nothing more than re- issuing script

bottom line is that the far right evangelicals (that have invaded the Tea Party) scare off the middle of the roaders. The Reps lose mostly because of their stance on social issues. I have heartburn on their social stance as well, but they're by far the lessor of 2 evils. I'd love to see Paul run as a Libertarian, but we all know that instantly gets us 4 more years of somebody like Hildabeast.

Now that is funny. Back to the old voter fraud excuse. The republicans lost because they are out of touch with today's people. They are still stuck in the 50's and 60's and can't see that things have changed again.

That is what Dems said happened in the recall election in Colorado recently.so it may be rampant.

Its hard to believe that in some precincts with several hundred thousand voters that Romney didnt get one single vote which is nearly impossible.

its even harder to believe that the libtard voters were so happy with the way things were going that they voted this liar back in office.He was,and is the worst president in US history.look back.

You are on the mark there. And they show no inclination to change anytime soon. The party is doomed unless they bring in some fresh blood.
