SNAP statistics contradict Paul Ryan

SNAP Program Statistics

SNAP Program Statistics

Once again there is a conflict between conservative ideology and statistics. This time, the topic is: Do food stamps make poor people lazy?

This graph shows the return-to-work rates for families that went on the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, also known as “Food Stamps”) due to unemployment. It turns out that a majority of the families with work-eligible adults that went on the SNAP program regained employment within the same month, and almost 90% of them had regained employment within the following year.

BUT WAIT A MOMENT!!  THAT DOESN’T MAKE ANY SENSE!!!!

Everyone knows that when people go on food stamps, they think: “OMG, life is so easy, Ima never work again!”

Paul Ryan stated very clearly in his proposed budget that “government policies affecting lower-income individuals can often create a powerful disincentive to get ahead.”

The meaning of this statement could not possibly be more clear. Giving poor people financial assistance makes them lazy. (It is interesting and important to note that Paul Ryan does not think that giving rich people free money makes them lazy… but that’s a topic for another time.)

So on the one hand, we have Paul Ryan’s sentence in his budget.

On the other hand, we have actual statistics about the return-to-work rates of people on food stamps.

Which one is correct?

Well, we all know the answer to that: statistics clearly have a liberal bias!!!!

Mitt Romney was right about all you deadbeat losers.

Deadbeat Loser Graph

Mitt Romney has gotten a lot of flack about saying 47% of the people are pathetic losers. Well, he was right. In fact, according to some estimates 96% of you are deadbeat leeches and should just go F yourselves. Deal with it.

The above graph makes it clear that many of you who claim to be good conservatives living the American Way are actually low-life scum sucking off the government teat. Look at the huge percentage of people who claim to be do-it-yourself, hard-working Americans who actually secretly are taking money from communist programs like the “Home Mortgage Interest Deduction.” See how many people claim that they are responsible for their own success while underhandedly sucking money from the system through student loans and lifetime learning tax credits. Losers! Traitors! Scum!

I know it’s not a popular thing to say in an election year, but Real Conservatives will be behind this.  In fact, when Kenyan Muslim Socialist Barack Obama wins the upcoming election, I predict that all of our great leaders, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, and Jesus Christ, will go on local radio stations across the country to agree with that we at Liberal Bias are stating here and now: the reason Obama won is because most Americans have devolved into losers who Ronald Reagan and the other Founding Fathers would be ashamed of.

Are you one of those sickening lowlifes who uses a mortgage interest deduction in your taxes? Deadbeat lowlife slug!

Does your employer make a tax-free contribution to your health-insurance plan? You are nothing more than a festering gob, you tit! Your type makes me puke!

A real conservative doesn’t take socialist tax deductions. That’s for poor people and racial minorities. If you take a single deduction on your taxes then Mitt Romney will see you with his All-Seeing Eye and know that you are a simpering whining leech sucking life and other vital fluids from the virtuous wealthy people that made this country great. And you’re probably part foreign, to boot.

So suck it up and deal. Real conservatives know that not only welfare and food stamps, but also mortgage deductions, student loans, and Veteran’s benefits are all for WEAK PUSSIES.

 

Anybody who tells you anything differently is just suffering from liberal bias!!!
