BO-Land: More and more of us dependent on a government check

We've heard Newt Gingrich say that Pres BO is the "food stamps president".  Unfortunately, he is also the president who is expanding the number of people who are dependent on government.

IBD has a great column about this topic

"The American public's dependence on the federal government shot up 23% in just two years under President Obama, with 67 million now relying on some federal program, according to a newly released study by the Heritage Foundation.
The conservative think tank's annual Index of Dependence on Government tracks money spent on housing, health, welfare, education subsidies and other federal programs that were "traditionally provided to needy people by local organizations and families."
The two-year increase under Obama is the biggest two-year jump since Jimmy Carter was president, the data show."

Some would say that this dependency is directly related to the bad recession.  There is some truth to that.

However, some of us believe that this strategy of dependency is intended to create voters, or people who vote for the Dems to guarantee their benefits.

This dependency has created all of this structural spending that continues to grow year after after.  It did not start with Pres BO but he has clearly taken it to unsustainable levels. 

Last, but not least, dependency is bad for the soul because it destroys human beings. It's time to tell people that the check will stop and they are now responsible for taking care of themselves and their children.
