Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Government dependency spikes under Obama

Or, as Pelosi would say, big time economic “bang for the buck”!  Details:

The American public’s dependence on the federal government shot up 23% in just two years under President Obama, with 67 million now relying on some federal program, according to a newly released study by the Heritage Foundation.

The conservative think tank’s annual Index of Dependence on Government tracks money spent on housing, health, welfare, education subsidies and other federal programs that were “traditionally provided to needy people by local organizations and families.”

The increase under Obama is the biggest two-year jump since Jimmy Carter was president, the data show.

The rise was driven mainly by increases in housing subsidies, an expansion in Medicaid and changes to the welfare system, along with a sharp rise in food stamps, the study found. …

For those of you on the left, government dependence is a bad thing!

Numbers are racist.  Or something.

  1. For those on the left, it is a GOOD thing.The more that depend on gov’t spending to any degree means a greater number of people who may be motivated to vote for the dems that KEEP the money coming! They would utterly reject your premise that it is a bad thing. They want MORE dependents…er…voters…

  2. No surprise here. For the reasons stated by Kevin. More folks on welfare, more voters for the left to keep the bennies coming. Simple.
    Liberalism is a mental disorder.

  3. What I never understand about the welfare voters is that their economic situation NEVER improves, yet they still keep voting for their Liberal slave masters so they can continue to live in government sponsored poverty. Stupid!

  4. Well, if one can’t swim, and is in the ocean, as long as I keep throwing them a little life preserver, they don’t drown. I am amazed that they keep voting for the same ole life preserver rather than to actually get help OUT of the water?!?!?!?
    The democrats offer NO ladder or rope…they just keep tossing the same little foam ring out to their voters.
