Thanks Obama: More Illinoisans on Food Stamps Than Ever

-By Warner Todd Huston

According to the AP, there are more citizens in Illinois on food stamps than ever before.

More than 780,000 Illinois families got food stamps in June. The Illinois Department of Human Services said Monday that the figure is up 11.9 percent from a year earlier.

Is this any surprise when Illinois clocks in as having one of the worst business climates of any state in the Union? Illinois ranks a dismal 45th place in state rankings for the best business climates in the country according to a study by the Institute for Legal Reform. So it is no surprise to see more Illinoisans on government support when jobs are fleeing the state due to the oppressive business climate instigated by the deep-blue Democrats that are in full control of the state.

Obama was part of that cabal until he left for Washington and he still has deep ties to them back home in Illinois. Ans who else do we have to thank for this? The same man that wants to be our Governor, Pat Quinn who has been wholly ineffective in solving our budget crisis. Quite a team they make, eh?
