Not only is Barack Obama giving handouts to people in the form of food stamps, he’s also promoting the same practice abroad. A current omnibus spending bill in Congress is funding U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) advertising programs for food stamps in Mexico. Although the House Appropriations Committee published that the bill “prohibits” these efforts “on advertisement with foreign governments,” Obama has decided to disregard this.
The decision is part of Obama’s general practice of trying to make as many people possible dependent on the U.S. government in order to help his political agenda. However, many people have been found to abuse their welfare privileges and food stamps. A report from earlier this month showed that EBT money from Maine welfare recipients had been used in all 50 U.S. states during 2012, while some of the money was spent on lavish vacations in Florida and Hawaii. Nearly half of the $28 million distributed to Maine welfare recipients was spent outside of the state and neighboring New Hampshire.
However, they aren’t the only state to have this issue. Nearly 15 percent of the welfare money distributed throughout California in 2012 was spent in Las Vegas. EBT cash withdrawals have also been made at strip clubs in Kansas and Washington.
His continuous efforts to help minority groups at the expense of the general population, both at home and abroad, led to recent scathing comments by Tea Party repesentative Allen West. West described Obama as a “vile and disgusting” racist who “abjectly despises” white people, despite the fact that this population is a huge part of the reason he has won two terms in office.
