Re: 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.

SERVICE SECTOR, read minimum wage/low wage jobs. Thats what America has become. They keep talking about the divide in America...and the real divide now is you either can work in the service sector for serf wages, or the professional sector and fare better.

Gone are the days of graduating high school, getting into a trade or manufacturing/industrial job, working your way up the ladder and earning a middle class wage. Those jobs have either been lost to illegals in the trades, or out sourcing to foreign nations.

Thats all that is left unless you have an idea to start your own business that provides a service people want. And of course you could go into that debt ridden and explosively expensive college education route to make it into the "professional class".

Re: Over a million Americans officially became poor in two months
I feel sonbad for the ones who really want to get out of their situation rather than wanting to rely on state benefits.....

I just can't fathom why we cant all get a million bucks each as a sort of global humantitarian aid package of cash which would cost at max 7.x billion in their respective currencies based on the number of people in the world right now....

Wouldn't that somehow balance out the economic problem if haing no cash to buy with or pay bills and it might kickstart the hlobal downturn....

Am I just over simplifying this or might there be some sense behind this idea???...

These people on food stamps are working harder than you in order for you earn your lavish wages. The standard of living will level out. If you deprive people of food they're not going to be able to break their backs for you anymore. You'll then have to pay your workers enough to buy food. Corporations are so corrupt they need this regulation.

Stupid question... But what is SNAP? Is that the real name of food stamps? Or is it another program? Please educate me.

Supplemental nutrition assistance program... the NEW and Improved version of FOODSTAMPS!. it comes on a debit card that gets recharged monthly.

I make roughly 20K a year.... i own my home, own all of my vehicles and don't ask anyone for a fucking thing.

i hunt my meat and grow a garden.

Fuck these useless eaters.

I had a spinal cord injury in 1987.. i am not fuckin whining, crying poormouth. I work as much as i can and have real skills that I supplement with.

Shut that shit off all of it. fuckin parasites will figure out how to eat when they have to.

Re: Over a million Americans officially became poor in two months
Extended unemployment benefits are due to expire Jan 1, 2013. If not renewed, 2 million Americans will no longer receive those benefits immediately, and another million over the following three months. So add another 3 million people onto the food stamp rolls. And since they will no longer be counted as unemployed--the unemployment rate will drop below 7%!!!

Then there all those people whose job hours are being cut below 30 hrs a week, so employers can avoid paying for Obamacare. Many of them will then qualify for food stamps as well.

I don't get them either, I tried to grow a garden this year, it burn up nothing I could do to save it.

I can't hunt. I don't begrudge anyone food that really need it and there are some very needy families now because of the economy. Not everyone live where they can grow a garden or hunt!

I don't like people who just use the system just because they can.

I think I'll ask President Obama for a grant, so I can help people like he did. I really think I could do so, with as little as 10 million.

Re: Over a million Americans officially became poor in two months
Supplemental Nutritional Aid Program???? my ass.

OKAY... if that's the case... they should only allow food staples and basic ingredients that are nutritious and healthy...

fruit loops, funyuns, pepsi, frozen pizza and ribeyes is hardly supplemental nutrition...

it's such a fucked up system the goal MUST be to get everyone on it...

and as far as I can tell the stigma is now removed and it's seen as the same as having a debt card with your own money to spend...

the topic disgusts me and gets my blood pressure up.

Re: Over a million Americans officially became poor in two months
So rather you people get help (even though Im sure are abusing it) or the gov't keep spending money (and OVERspending I might add) on wars that they do not need to fight? I go with the first. Help people as much as possible but cut back on military spending.
