Statements about Hunger

"For every one job created under the Obama administration, 75 people went on food stamps."

Food stamp spending "doubled under President Bush, doubled again under President Obama."  

Proposed cuts in the House farm bill mean "2 million less people on food stamps, 210,000 children will not receive school lunches or breakfasts."

"More people have been put on food stamps by Barack Obama than any president in American history."

President Barack Obama deserves to be called "the most successful food stamp president in American history" because "47 million Americans are on food stamps."

Under a House Republican appropriations bill, "6 million seniors are deprived of meals."

Says it’s a "statistical reality that most single moms are very poor, under-educated, can't get a job, and if it weren't for government assistance, their kids would be starving to death."
