Ohio’s November surprise…

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Congratulations Ohio! If you voted to reelect President Obama because you wanted a free Obama phone or because you need aide, you’re about to get hit with a $520,000,000 cut.

This morning on radio, Glenn shared a report that was just released showing that 869,000 Ohio households that are enrolled in the food stamp program received a notice of the coming cut. That’s roughly $50 a month per family.

Glenn explained that because it’s been a mild winter, natural gas prices are lower than usual. The cut in aid is linked to the drop in the price of fuel.

The problem is, this is obviously based on last year’s winter, and places in Ohio that distribute food are already starting to say that they’re in trouble — they’re going to run out of food because people are not going to be able to afford it.

“So congratulations, Ohio, for all of those people who said, oh, well, I got to get my free Obama phone,” Glenn quipped.

He added that if you don’t think the federal government knew these cuts were coming to this area last week before the election…well, he’s got a bridge to sell you.

Pat had another related statistic that was held until yesterday…

“Usually the food stamp number comes out in the last of a month or the first couple of days of the next month,” Pat explained. “It came out yesterday that we had a record number of food stamp recipients in July, which is the last month that was recorded — 420,900 new recipients in one month. That’s an all‑time record for one month, biggest ever, and brings the total to over 47 million now. They held onto that until yesterday.”

“They probably didn’t know about it until yesterday,” Glenn responded jokingly.

…he’s probably right. It just happened to be delayed, just this one time, which purely coincidentally fell during an election month.

That has to be it.

    America, wake up! This increase in food stamps, Obama Phone, gifts, gifts, and more free stuff is Obama’s plan to crash America. He learned it all from the methods from  Cloward and Piven. ObamaCare was just the beginning. He is adding so many regulations, and nothing can stop him now. Rome is burning and the Republicans need to start the impeachment process for this bastard.

It’s gonna be a long 4 years..hope you love him more at the end of it!

    They deserve it!  And guess what else they’re going to find out.  People won’t give anymore.  I’m not going to give to charities anymore.  They can take me off of their mailing lists, etc. And food banks?  No.  Charity begins at home.  If people are so dumbed down to vote for Obama let them struggle and suffer.  My compassion ended with the election.

Just saw on FOX TV that a person in Ohio stated “They told him if he voted for Romney food stamp benefits would be cut,and they were” unquote. This is exactly why obummer got in.

    And, of course, this increase helped to bring the unemployment figures down before the election. How about counting all these people on food stamps as part of the unemployed?  What is the TRUE unemployment rate in the US?

    Wow.Cuts to foodstamps? How unfair..we voted for you Obama! (Tongue in cheek) This is just the start. Hurricane Sandy victims have already been abandoned by Obama. Yeppers he got his photo op. It worked. America was impressed.4 more years of Obama.And the misery is just beginning. Obama’s policies will drive fuel and food prices beyond the financial capabilites of most americans.His promise to bankrupt the coal industry will mean very cold and dark homes as they endure rolling blackouts. The electrical rates will be high.The millions of illegals obama wishes to feedand house and give cash payouts will gut our economy..America..you voted for your impoverishment.

    Take a look at the mayhem on Long Island from “Sandy”, and then multiple it by the 47% who receive their food, their rent, their cash from the gov’t!  When all H*LL cuts loose, they will try to blame it on the Republicans saying it is those nasty Tea Baggers who have done this to the takers . . . . well, guess what!!!  We are NOT accepting responsibility for those who refuse to help themselves!   The private army Obama has been building will be called upon to control the unruly progressives who will destroy the cities they live in!

    There will be thousands in the streets DEMANDING their “fair share”, and it won’t be the conservatives they insisted on throwing under the bus that will be the cause!!  Nope, it will be on the backs of the Democrats and those they bamboozled into believing that they indeed could get something for nothing . . . FOREVER!!!!!

    The elections had to be rigged because they can program the the computers to count the votes any way they want without the people knowing it. there is no way the Traitor in Chief should have gotten re-elected with all that has happened. if so then they never paid any attention to his speeches. the whole administration needs to be imprisoned & held accountable for their actions over the last 4 years, for lying to & misleading the people & allowing the 4 U.S. people to die in Libya wich was treasonous.

    My son and husband went with our church’s “helping hands” to Stanton Island this past Saturday. They felt good about being able to actually help people with what they needed. Great Experience. However, a common theme with the people there was that the government has mostly given them lip service, and it is mainly the Mormons, other religious groups, and individuals in the community whose homes were not decimated who are actually giving the real help they need–help cleaning out their rotting houses, tearing out drywall, giving them food (which they have no way to cook in this mess), warm blankets and clothing, etc. did you know there are “tent cities?” on Stanton island? In this COLD we have been having this week? Those who are shocked at the lack of coherent government aid have been sold a bill of goods from Obama. He did his photo op and scrammed. Period. “Government” doesn’t help people–people do.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_ZFYHYAI6Z2B6GN5MHUQLFSIEBI Frustrated

    Oh, and by the way, remember how Obama and crew mocked Romney for collecting food for the hurricane victims, claiming people only had to send $ to the Red Cross? Real donations don’t get money sloughed off to pay employees. Real donations by real people actually do some good, immediately. Not saying you shouldn’t send $ too, but in a crisis, it is shameful to make fun of someone who is trying to help in ANY way. Obama should be soundly reprimanded by the American people, as we now see how inept his administration has been in this crisis, akin or even worse than Katrina. The only difference is more people decided to obey orders to get out.

    Sadly, People will begin to find out what Obama is all about. I’m not one to say, “I told you so”, But you were all told and now it will all come to fruition. I wish no one ill, but the foolish in this counrtry will be the ones to suffer. Nothing in this world is free, remember that. The children are the ones that concern me for the unfortunate circumstances and result of the ignorant adults that call themselves parents. Whoever made promises they had no intention of keeping, is to blame, and we all know who that person is. You were forewarned, yet you followed the shepherd of doom and now you will reap what you have sowed. I am personally saddened that so many foolish people were so easily lead; Servitude to a different master when God should have been your main focus.
