Tyler, Texas (KETK) — In a story I had to read two times Monday to make sure I had it right, The Wall Street Journal is reporting one in six American get food stamps.
CNS reported this week, "The number of Americans receiving subsidized food assistance from the federal government has risen to 101-million, representing roughly a third of the U.S. Population."
That is astounding.
But to the uber left, that is not enough.
Their cry is we are not spending enough.
And by not spending more money, that is why the U.S. economy is still in the tank and the unemployment level is still, after 54 months, at seven and a half percent.
CNS reported Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said last week, that insufficient government spending, caused by Republican "austerity policies" is hurting the U.S. economy and preventing a quicker recovery.
He says we are not spending enough.
$17-trillion in the hole and we are not spending enough?
He says we can't cut our way to prosperity.
I say we can't spend our way to it either.
You know that tax breaks and cuts would loosen this economy up.
If we could drill for more energy.
But, I really don't think this Washington leadership wants that.
They just want control.
And control is having more people on the dole.
That's my point of view, what's yours?
