(NaturalNews) By any measure, President Obama's economic and governing policies have been a failure, most recently demonstrated by one statistic: Today, one in five Americans needs government, at some level, to survive – the highest number, proportionately, since the Great Depression.

"Approximately 52.2 million (or 21.3 percent) people in the U.S. participated in major means-tested government assistance programs each month in 2012," according to a recently released U.S. Census Bureau report.

As reported by the Washington Free Beacon, means-tested programs include Medicaid, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP (formerly known as "food stamps"), Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) and General Assistance (GA).

The Census Bureau notes that the number of Americans needing some sort of government (taxpayer) assistance has grown dramatically over the past decade. The agency said that, in 2004, there were nearly 42 million benefactors of these programs, but by 2012 participation had grown by nearly 25 percent. Today, more than 52.2 million Americans are receiving assistance.
