Politicians misappropriating public tax money for their own enrichment is nothing new, as we have seen many a scandal that involves backroom deals, money, and politicians. Unfortunately, not all who are guilty are brought to justice. Hillary Clinton is the first person that comes to mind.
However, what was just discovered about former President Obama’s massive fraud of the American people will have you outraged. Perhaps he should line up behind Hillary for the prison line.
How would you feel about $2.6 billion. That’s right, BILLION, of funds going missing from the SNAP program under Obama’s watch?
Via Joe For America:
The president is in hot water after it was discovered that $2.6 billion went missing on his watch, and where it was found will have you seething.
MRC Blog reported that the United Sates Department of Agriculture (USDA) inspector general just caught those responsible for the missing money, and they revealed that Obama enabled them to steal $2.6 billion in goods using the National Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), commonly known as food stamps.
The food stamps were allegedly used by 1,819 people who are known to be deceased, according to the Social Security “Death Master File.”
The inspector general’s office said in a statement:
“We found that 3,394 authorized SNAP retailers (retailers) used Social Security Numbers (SSN) that matched SSNs of deceased people. Additionally, 193 retailers listed owners who were not at least 18 years of age. While FNS did have some controls to edit or verify SNAP retail owner information, these controls were not adequate to ensure owner information accuracy.”
Under the Obama administration, the number of Americans on welfare has ballooned to record levels. There are now 46 million people on food stamps, or 15% of the entire country’s population. As you can imagine, this rampant abuse of the system has opened the door for fraud on a massive scale.
It will be a surprise if President Trump does not address this problem personally, since every American taxpayer dollar spent, stolen, or wasted, is one of his major concerns!
