Food stamp usage rose during the Obama years, for obvious reasons.
It’s a lot easier to get elected when promising people free stuff.
Now, for the first time since October 2009, usage has hit its lowest level.
Overall participation in America’s food stamp program fell to 37 million for the first time since October 2009, according to the latest statistics released by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).
The most recent USDA data revealed that 37,911,631 people received food stamps through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) in December 2018, marking the lowest level of overall participation in the nation’s food stamp program in nearly ten years.
The last time overall participation in food stamps reached this level was in October 2009, when 37,672,818 people were on the government dole, according to USDA data.
How will the left attempt to spin this one? Any thoughts?
One Barack Obama was enough.
One Michelle Obama was enough.
And yet, liberals seem to forget that over 1,000 Democrat legislative seats were lost during the former president’s two terms in office.
Enter Barack, who wants a whole lot more “Barack and Michelles.”
From Washington Examiner:
He told a packed arena at Bell MTS Place how he plans to create a “university for social change” that will serve as a hub for young people in the U.S. and around the world who are skeptical of the “old institutions.”
Obama: “If we train them — if we give them skills, support, financing, media training, spotlights, then they’re the ones that are going to carry forward the solutions that we so desperately need.”
Obama: “If we could form a network of those young leaders, not just in the United States, but around the world, then we got something, if we can train a million Baracks and Michelles who are running around thinking they can change the world.”

Some people out there believe Michelle Obama is the only chance Democrats have to defeat President Trump in 2020 and take back the White House.
Why? Who knows?
Name recognition, maybe?
Opinion: Michelle Obama is the only one who can beat Donald Trump in 2020 – if only she would run https://t.co/1AHKT6pTVH

As Democrats begin their campaign for the party’s 2020 nomination, #Obama is the party’s unrivaled powerbroker. He will be the biggest speaker at the party’s 2020 convention. His wife, #MichelleObama, might be the second biggest. https://t.co/mPhQ7JObDs

Michelle, though, doesn’t care.
She just made clear that she’s not a candidate.
From Daily Mail:
Michelle Obama has ruled out running for president at any point in the future.
