June Foodstamp Recipients Hit All Time High As Three Times As Many Americans Enter Poverty As Find Jobs


Following a brief period in which it seemed that US foodstamp recipients may have peaked, with those living in poverty maxing out at 46.514 million in December 2011, and then declining modestly for the next few months, June saw a new surge in those Americans living in poverty and thus eligible for foodstamps, with 173,600 new entrants into the system, bringing the total to a new all time high of 46.670 million and once again rising fast. Furthermore, with subsequent emergency events affecting the heartland due to the drought, the administration has made sure even more Americans will be eligible going forward. As a result expect the July and August numbers to promptly surpass 47 million on their way to the psychological resistance level of 50 million. Indicatively, the 173,600 increase in Foodstamps recipients in June was three times greater than Americans finding jobs (64,000, most of which part-time) according to the BLS. Finally, a new record was also breached for American households on foodstamps, which now hit 22.4 million, an increase of 106,298 households. The average benefit per household decline once more, this time to $276.5. Not an all time low, but just above it.

But yet the right-wingers are still in depression-denial mode and still want lazy Americans to get off their @$$e$ and get back to work.

They'll be the first ones to get theirs come another civil-war.

They also can not do the math.

Because more people looking for a job than actual jobs are available.

Coming back home from downtown Detroit I took a main drag (Grand River Avenue) because the expressway seemed to be backed up.Plus the fact I wanted to take a fresh look. I don`t think I`ve ever seen it so bad.Closed up or burned out store fronts the whole 15 mile stretch back to the suburbs.It seemed there used to be pockets of prosperity.Not anymore.The biggest business looked to be people selling second hand items on the sidewalks.Pretty much all desperate black neighborhoods.

Exactly you can't even convince them of that.

They just live the Limbaugh-Life-Lie and act on it throughout their own lives.

I have many like this just in my own family.

I don't mind conservo-libertarians who are pretty educated about economics, even tho I am lefty-libertarian but some of these economically ignorant right-wingers just make me peod to no end.

  So sad.   Those rat bastards sent all those good-paying auto jobs to Mexico, Brazil and the Orient.

Not to worry, because when it stops being someone else and starts being oh-so-precious them, their tune will immediately change from self-righteous posturing to infantile whining.

Reality itself has a way of bitch-slapping blame-the-victim-firsters out of their delusions of superiority like that.

Doesn't seem like it from where I'm standing. How dare I be out of formal employment for more than 12 weeks in the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression  ::)
