Gingrich: Obama "Most Effective Food Stamp President In History"
GOP Presidential candidate Newt Gingrich reacts to the news that the number of those who use food stamps has jumped to 45,800,000 or nearly 15% of the nation's population.
"You don't get out of 9.2% unemployment, you don't get out of -- today it was announced [that] the largest number of Americans [are] on food stamps in history. I've said now for six months, this is the most effective food stamp President in history. That sounds like it is an attack, it's just a statement of fact. It's just that his administration kills jobs. They are driving Americans onto food stamps. Most Americans would rather have a paycheck," Gingrich told FOX News' Greta Van Susteren in an interview on Thursday night.
Gingrich says Obama's upcoming Midwest bus tour is a "fantasy tour."
