I don't believe we've ever had a more compassionate President than Barack Obama. Why? Well I just learned that the Obama administration has hired hundreds of "food stamp counsellors" to show up at Mexican consulates throughout the U.S. and conduct seminars on how those here illegally can sign up for the U.S. Food Stamp Program.
Three years ago the U.S. Department of Agriculture published little booklets in Spanish in order to promote the federal SNAP program for newly arrived "undocumented immigrants." They even paid couriers to distribute these booklets in every Mexican border town where potential "immigrants" were staging for a border crossing.
One liberal concern was that illegal Mexicans might be fearful of applying for food stamp benefits..that doing so might hamper their ability to gain legal citizenship. "Far from it"...said Obama's minions:
Obama wanted to make sure that illegals understood that, if they would only produce one anchor baby, they were in like Flint. In fact just one anchor baby opens up a whole new world of government gravy; Section 8 housing, food stamps, welfare in the infant child's name, child tax credits and free Medicaid!
The USDA also uses taxpayer money to pay for radio ads broadcast on Univision and Spanish radio stations to promote those free food bennies.
Apparently, all those booklets and radio ads weren't doing the job. So Obama dispatched "benefit counsellors" to all the Mexican consulates in the U.S. And boy is it working! According to the USDA 43% of all food stamp recipients are Mexican "immigrants." That compares to only 14% of the American citizenry. Wow! When you can achieve triple digit gains in government handouts you've really achieved something, huh?
Yes, President Obama is the most compassionate of Presidents....except for our vets, or our own poor, or most especially for the American taxpayer. To paraphrase another Democratic President, Lyndon Johnson, who said "I'll have them niggers voting Democratic for the next hundred years"...Obama can truthfully say "I'll have them wetbacks voting Democratic for the next hundred years!"
