Obama’s nanny state is growing. And growing fast.
Investor’s Business Daily reports that government dependence under Obama surged 23% in his first two years in office. That is the fastest growth since Jimmy Carter.
- The dependency index has only dropped seven times in the past 50 years. Most were during the Reagan administration!
- "In 2010, for the first time ever, average spending on dependence programs per recipient exceeded the country’s per-capita disposable income."
