Borelli Blames Obama for More Americans on Government Assistance

With the announcement by the federal officials that even more Americans are applying for food stamps (and one in seven Americans are now reliant on some form of government assistance), Project 21 fellow Deneen Borelli laments this increase in people “depending on government” for basic needs.  Deneen blames the policies of the Obama Administration — especially energy policy and the “wasted tax dollars” of the stimulus — as doing more to push people to welfare rolls than in stabilizing the American economy.  This discussion with Fox News Channel hosts Brian Kilmeade and Gretchen Carlson was featured on the 3/6/12 edition of “Fox & Friends.”
