Obama Regime Rewards Oregon for Aggressive Food Stamp Recruitment

In a sane world, use of the coercively financed “safety net” would be strongly discouraged, so that it is used only in cases of extreme necessity. In a world controlled by moonbats, bureaucrats are rewarded for hooking as many as they can on the most pernicious addictive drug known to mankind: government dependence.

In its quest to promote taxpayer-funded entitlement programs, the Obama Administration has actually rewarded one state with a $5 million bonus for its efficiency in adding food-stamp recipients to already bulging rolls.

It’s part of the administration’s campaign to eradicate “food insecure households” by improving access and increasing participation in the government’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). Incidentally, the program was recently changed to SNAP to eliminate the stigma that comes with a name like food stamps. Just a few months ago the federal agency that administers the program, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), launched a multi-million-dollar initiative to recruit more food-stamp participants even though the number of recipients has skyrocketed in the last few years.

The number will continue to skyrocket, and by design:

As if this weren’t bad enough, the feds are also giving the state a two-year grant to test an “innovative approach” to the food-stamp “client eligibility review process.” This will make it even easier for people to get food stamps because it grants state officials a waiver that allows them to grant the benefit without interviewing the candidate.

A “client” is what our bureaucratic overlords call a parasite feeding off the public teat. The more clients are recruited, the more powerful the government becomes.

If you want to see where this is leading, visit a housing project — or a hog farm. In “fundamentally transformed” America, the majority will wallow in their own filth in tiny pens, content to be bred for their votes because someone else pays for all the swill they can devour. Those who still work will do so as their slaves.

    “It’s free to swipe your EBT”?Not if you have a checking account with Bank of America. Because of the Durbin Amendment, they now charge $5 per month to do so.

    If I were ever to run for federal office, I’d love to propose legislation forbidding the feds from using taxpayer dollars to advertise and troll for increased usage of federal programs paid for by more taxpayer dollars. Man, that frosts my cupcakes.

    Nah. It’s part of this treasonous President’s efforts to collapse our country. This “spend-every-dollar-in-the-known-universe-plus-more” is the Progressives’ attempt to destroy up the economy (per the Cloward-Piven strategy). They’ve also been trying to gin up class warfare; they’re promoting racial/ ethnic hostility against whites; they’re demonizing the productive, invalidating rule-of-law, alienating our allies and encouraging our enemies.

    We need to start the trials for treason, then we need to follow those up with firing squads.

    And yes, I *DO* –seriously– believe they are trying to destroy America.

    May as well make gold into lead and spoon feed it. The result ends in STUPID no matter how you dish it out.

    This is just another way for the Marxist-in-Chief to take money from those Americans who earn it, and give it to those who simply want it. By doing that, he will be sure to, once again, get 97% of the black vote. The principle is simple. Addicts will never bite the hand of their supplier, so long as the supply keeps flowing.

    There is no other nation on earth that has anywhere near the number of govt. handout programs that we have. If anyone in this country is going hungry, it (is not) because they can’t buy food. Perhaps, if they spent less money on crack, fancy sneakers, and huge chrome rims, they’d have some leftover for food? We need to return to more simple times and values, as in, YOU DON’T WORK, YOU DON’T EAT! If you “truly” can’t work, we will provide for you.

    NYC has the largest population of Russian immigrants in the country. These are tough, intelligent people who know very well how to “work” our systems. Upon arrival, they are given “every single” govt. handout available, and then some. Medicare, Medicaid, disability, social security, rent subsidies, and of course, food stamps. Have you ever stood behind someone in a supermarket, someone wearing obviously expensive full-length leather of fur, with 3 carts filled with the best foods, (thanks to their food stamp card) who then wheels them out to a new 7-series BMW or Benz? Can you hear them laughing at us?

    Thank you for this post and the video. I had watched it once on youtube and won’t forget it. This is the part of America that I want out of. I don’t want to subsidize these people no matter what their race. That America does this to itself is beyond shameful.
