Record number of Americans get government help

Post by Sunrise on Wed Apr 13, 2011 1:40 pm

One in six Americans is receiving help from the government, just as fiscal austerity threatens to reduce some of that aid.

Unemployment insurance: More than 8.4 million people are
collecting either state or federal jobless benefits. While enrollment is
down from its peak of 12 million early last year, it is still more than
double the number it was when the recession began in late 2007.

12.0 million people
- 8.4 million people

= 3.6 million people



That are NOT being counted and most probably have exhausted all of their benefits!

Record numbers of unemployed, record number of people getting help from the government and record foreclosures.

Now why would anyone think this is the time to cut funding to programs that are a lifeline for many, including many children.

This is one time that I am not supporting the President's actions! I think that he has his eyes focused too much on 2012 and is trying to appeal to a broader base.

This is NOT the time to stop spending - just about every economist whose article I've read agrees.

There are some that believe that people enjoy being poor enough to qualify for these programs and that being hungry is a great motivator. There is a reason these programs were put into place and it wasn't so people would "live large" on the benefits.
