Caroline May | The DC -- The Republican side of the Senate Budget Committee is out with new data showing that more Americans are joining the food stamp and disability rolls than are actually finding work.
From April to June of this year, 200,000 Americans found jobs, compared to the 265,000 who enrolled in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or food stamps, and the 246,000 who were awarded disability payments.
The comparisons are from the most recent available government data, and were first reported by The Weekly Standard.
