States Gaming System To Give More Food Stamps

Congress has wisely cut Food Stamps by $8.6 Billion over the next ten years, which actually is a drop in the bucket.   As a result of Socialist President Pinocchio Obama's lousy economy and loose administration, 20 million more Americans are now on Food Stamps, since Obama first took office in 2008. We are currently spending $80 Billion a year on Food Stamps going to almost 50 million Americans.   But that is not enough for New York, Connecticut and Pennsylvania that are gaming the system to provide even more in Food Stamps to their recipients.   Officials in these states have figured out that if they just spend a few million dollars more in state money to provide the poor with Home Heating Oil that it somehow triggers hundreds of millions of dollars more in federal money for Food Stamps.  Bernie Madoff went to jail for his scam that bilked people out of billions of dollars.   Why aren't these politicians and bureaucrats that bilk the taxpayer out of billions of dollars going to jail.   Instead, those in government get promoted for their murky schemes.  

It is time for Congress to act; but don't count on any support from the Obama Justice Department led by liar Attorney General Eric Holder.   If anything, Obamanistas are likely to encourage other states to do the same as the crooks in New York, Pennsylvania and Connecticut to get around the cuts enacted by Congress. THESE CROOKS ARE BANKRUPTING OUR COUNTRY.   The National Debt under Obama has grown to more than a 100% of Gross Domestic Product, currently at $17.3 Trillion and growing with no end in sight.   We cannot keep putting more Americans on the dole.   As it is, even without ObamaCare, there is $127 Trillion of unfunded liability sitting out there related to Social Security and Medicare.  These are promises made to Americans who paid into the system their entire working life's.   The money will not be there to cover the 78 million Baby Boomers that are reaching 65 at a rate of 10,000 a day.   

In addition, we have ObamaCare that will add Trillions to our National Debt and the unfunded liability for all the bloated local, state and federal public employee pensions that will explode on the American people.   There is only $109 Trillion in collective assets in the United States.   If all assets were confiscated, which the Socialists would love to do, it is impossible to pay for all off this.   We cannot tax the "rich" alone to pay for all the promises that have been made.  The fact is that we cannot tax our way out of this mess even if we raise taxes substantially on the Middle Class.   The only way out is to cut spending and reform Entitlements NOW and grow the economy to create more good paying jobs.   

Wake up America.  When you vote in 2014 and 2016, you better vote for Conservatives that support limited government, lower taxes, less regulations and free market capitalism.  Voting for Socialists is a road to the economic collapse of the United States and then all bets are off.   We will have civil strife on our streets and chaos.   We could even see the dissolution of the United States.   For the sake of our children and grandchildren, we just can't let that happen.
