The president is in hot water after it was discovered that $2.6 billion went missing on his watch, and where it was found will have you seething.
MRC Blog reported that the United Sates Department of Agriculture (USDA) inspector general just caught those responsible for the missing money, and they revealed that Obama enabled them to steal $2.6 billion in goods using the National Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), commonly known as food stamps.
The food stamps were allegedly used by 1,819 people who are known to be deceased, according to the Social Security “Death Master File.”
The inspector general’s office said in a statement:
“We found that 3,394 authorized SNAP retailers (retailers) used Social Security Numbers (SSN) that matched SSNs of deceased people. Additionally, 193 retailers listed owners who were not at least 18 years of age. While FNS did have some controls to edit or verify SNAP retail owner information, these controls were not adequate to ensure owner information accuracy.”
Just think of all the ways that $2.6 billion could have been better spent! That is fraud carried out with OUR hard-earned tax dollars! No wonder the Democrats want to tax us into oblivion – they’re using the money to make other Democrats rich!
Under the Obama administration, the number of Americans on welfare has ballooned to record levels. There are now 46 million people on food stamps, or 15% of the entire country’s population. As you can imagine, this rampant abuse of the system has opened the door for fraud on a massive scale.
The media doesn’t like to report legitimate news stories such as this one about government fraud, so please SHARE this information. Obama must be held accountable!
