During Monday’s Republican party presidential debate Newt Gingrich remarked "… the fact is that more people have been put on food stamps by Barack Obama than any president in American history. Now, I know among the politically correct you're not supposed to use facts that are uncomfortable."
The real problem is that among Republicans the use of “facts” doesn’t mean speaking the truth. In this case yes there are more people on food stamps than at any time since the program began but then the economy is in worse shape for a longer period of time than at any time since the food stamp program began and guess who’s responsible for that? Why none other than the Republicans and a few Democrats who are essentially owned by the banks and worked so hard to remove all the regulations that protected this country from banking failures that could collapse our economy.
