A stunning new report from CNS News Thursday shows the staggering extent to which America’s youngest generation is accustomed to government assistance, with new data showing over 50% of people under 18 living in a household receiving tax-payer funded aid.
According to data released by the Census Bureau, there are approximately 73.5 million people under the age of 18 in the United States and 38.4 million of them reside in a household where at least one person “benefits from a means-tested government program.”
That equates to 52.1% of all children in the United States.
“These included the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (food stamps), Medicaid, public housing, Supplemental Security Income, the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families and the National School Lunch Program,” writes CNS.
The study also finds the group least likely to receive means-tested aid are those 75 years of age or older, at just 18.8%.

AMERICA UNLEASHED: Food Stamp Enrollment DOWN 2.8 MILLION Under Trump
The US economy continued to roar to life in July under President Trump and the GOP-controlled Congress, with new data showing nearly three million Americans have left the nation’s food stamp program since the President’s inauguration in January 2017.
According to the new statistics released by the Department of Agriculture, over 2.8 million people dropped the program since Trump took office; fulfilling a signature campaign promise to boost Obama’s stagnant recovery.

The strong economic data -coupled with 4.1% growth in GDP in the second quarter of 2018- may spell disaster for Democrats heading into the midterm elections; with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi pledging to “repeal” the widely popular “GOP tax scam.”
ARMAGEDDON CONTINUES: Food Stamp Enrollment PLUNGES to 8 YEAR LOW
Nancy Pelosi’s dire prediction of “armageddon” continued to collapse this week, with the number of Americans receiving Supplemental Nutritional Assistance -better known as food stamps- plunging to the lowest levels in over eight years.
According to Fox News, “overall enrollment” in the SNAP program plummeted to levels not seen since February 2010 on Monday, with just over 40 million Americans receiving food stamps and other food assistance programs.
“As the economy continues to improve, participation in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) is declining,” a USDA official who asked for anonymity told Fox News. “SNAP was established as a temporary supplemental nutrition benefit guiding people to self-sufficiency and self-reliance, not a permanent way of life.”
The statistics come as the unemployment rate continues to fall and jobless claims drop to their lowest levels in nearly 45 years; sparking new fears for Democrats hoping to retake control of Congress this November.
