Tsarnaevs’ tab just the beginning

Posted by on May 01, 2013 at 7:45 am

It’s now been confirmed that the Tsarnaevs got Section 8 housing. They lived in Cambridge. Rents are expensive even in the not-so-nice parts of the People’s Republic. Let’s figure $800 a month in subsidies, over 10 years.

At that rate, Section 8 alone would come to $96,000. (If these numbers are off, Gov. Patrick, feel free to give the Herald the 500 pages you turned over to the Legislature so we can write a correction.)

Then there’s the “cash” — also known as EBT cards, and “SNAP,” formerly known as food stamps. And Mass Health.

The only documents Deval has turned over, under duress, involve state-run programs. What about the federal handouts available to these poor persecuted political refugees, who sometimes took six-month vacations in their native land where they were so oppressed?

Ever hear of “crazy checks”? That’s SSI, and it’s not just for widows and orphans anymore. SSI now includes a scam under which parents get their minor children diagnosed with some sort of usually invisible malady, making them eligible for $400 or $500 a month.

Tell me KleptoMom didn’t know about this grift.

Full story.

    Wow. Hundreds of thousands of dollars in largesse, top flight lawyers, AND a federal government that probably ignored the warnings of two different countries. Not to mention our own agencies.

    No wonder these morons are talking about gun control in a bombing case. That did involve a firearm. That oddly STILL hasn’t been idntified as having been a legal/illegal purchase. But these same idiots can conduct and act upon even more background checks.

    Sure they can.

    Howdy Blue Hen
    Of course the bombing case is at best tangential to gun control.
    The reports I’ve seen said the serial number on the pistol had been partially obliterated. I think we can rule out a legal gun purchase.

    I read several pages of commentary at the original BH site, and was surprised not a single leftist, as contrasted with hand wringing liberals, noted that 1) military budget driving blowback terrorism in the process of resource wars’ promotion to justify weapons contracts and 2) corporate welfare, not least engaged in the provision of the lamented social services’ admin, have so hollowed the tax base that resulting plutocrat flight & endgame income disparity have guaranteed no solution is possible for entitlements’ disasterous drain of fiscal resources. Little wonder the little people parasitically drain the collective teat when their financial betters do so far more voraciously. Please recall where Uncle RT’s former employer Halliburton relocated its corp HQ offshore.
