I very much fear that you are dead on right! Its been happening little by little for years, I cannot blame Obama for all of it, but it has certainly accelerated on his watch. We have less people working now than before he came into office. More people on welfare, food stamps, various forms of disability, unemployment, for longer than before. Record spending and debt. True the yearly deficit is down but only because of the so called sequester which mandated spending cuts. Its unreal! I wish this turd would just resign and save the country a lot of future grief!
