194,000 jobs, 14.7 million more people on food stamps

There are 194,000 more people are at work now than in January 2009, but our population has grown and there are now 8,822,000 more working-age people.  There is another comparison that should also be made: "During his time in office, 14.7 million people were added to the food stamp rolls. Over that same time, only 194,000 jobs were created — thus 75 people went on food stamps for every one that found a job."  This is from Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.).
