Is a rapid expansion of the safety net a Democrat accomplishment?

Over 700,000 Americans of employment age left the job market last week, while we are told that 200,000 new jobs is a success story. Hundreds of thousands more Americans are taking Medicaid. Tens of millions of Americans are under employed and taking food stamps. The expansion of the number of Americans no longer able to take care of themselves is the chief accomplishment of 5 years of Obama. Lefties call this a success story. Is it? Really?
