As you write that painful check to the U.S. Treasury this year, keep in mind that there are more people receiving food stamps than the number of women working full time. Why do people who work more, pay more, while those who work less, get more? I understand that we sometimes need to extend a hand to hard-working people who require some temporary help, but this Obama economy has become a miserable way of life, both for taxpayers and the growing numbers who are for all intents and purposes permanently on the dole. If all these welfare recipients are not just sponging off people who work–and I grant that many aren’t–then we must indict the president and his party for this sorry economy.
