Over a million Americans officially became poor in two months
The number of Americans enrolled in the government’s food stamp program has risen to surpass the previous month’s record. With 607,544 new Americans becoming eligible for food stamps in September, the total has reached yet another all-time record.

The monthly increase in those enrolled in the government’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) was the highest since May 2011 and topped off numbers that were already dire. In August 421 thousand more Americans became eligible for food stamps and together with September's numbers more than a million Americans officially became poor. In total, there were more than three times as many new food stamp recipients than new jobs.

The increase in food stamp eligible Americans came at a time when a campaigning Obama administration proudly reiterated the Bureau of Labor Statistics' report that private companies hired 201,000 new workers in August and the service sector added 185,000 workers.

But at an average cost of $134.29 per month per food stamp recipient, the federal government is increasingly spending more to tackle poverty.

“It is unclear just which atmospheric phenomenon will get the blame for this unprecedented surge in poverty, which comes at a time when the pre-election economic data euphoria was adamant that the US economy was on an escape velocity to utopia,” Tyler Durden wrote for Zero Hedge.

Rising from 47.1 million food stamp-eligible Americans in August to 47.7 million in September, it is possible that the US the number of recipients will reach 50 million before the end of the year.

34% of Puerto Rico is on Food Stamps
[link to www.trivisonno.com]

"So, in addition to the 46.7 million Americans on food stamps, we can add another 1.35 million Puerto Ricans, pushing the grand total to 48 million. For more details, see the “Puerto Rico” section on my food-stamps page."..a slight accounting error..

So snap is a debit card like? do you get this and a food stamp card? or you just get the snap card? What all do they give you? I never really understand how it all works, just know its income based, and that you get assistance at the beginning of each month.

I get nothing.. the LEECHES on the other hand get their debit cards recharged monthly to buy what they want.. i watched some leeches pull the old "Ill buy your groceries" shit the other day.

Followed some guy to the check out, paid for his shit with the card and then he gave them money.. which they promptly spent on booze and cigarettes. it was all i could do not to shoot them in the face.

Its not INCOME based.. it is NO income based.

From what I have seen there is SNAP.. the food card.
Then WIC which is more cash for food for kids
Then housing assistance, section 8 and full paid.
then they get a free cellphone, gas vouchers and even fuckin diapers.

all of it on our dime. fuckin parasites.

Officially poor? Does that mean they moved into a home with A/C, washer and dryer, two color TVs with cable or satellite service and an XBOX?

"Data from the Department of Energy and other agencies show that the average poor family, as defined by Census officials:

- Lives in a home that is in good repair, not crowded, and equipped with air conditioning, clothes washer and dryer, and cable or satellite TV service.

- Prepares meals in a kitchen with a refrigerator, coffee maker and microwave as well as oven and stove.

- Enjoys two color TVs, a DVD player, VCR and — if children are there — an Xbox, PlayStation, or other video game system.

- Had enough money in the past year to meet essential needs, including adequate food and medical care."

Hell, I'm not even poor and I still live in a rented apartment (by choice, housing in my city is very overpriced and I'd never pay what they want for a condo here) with a communal laundry room. What is described above would be a step UP in standard of living for me in many ways.
