Quantcast

Welfare “benefits” include porn, manicures, piercings, bail?

The Daily Caller reports,

Massachusetts Democratic Gov. Deval Patrick has vetoed the state legislature’s attempt to ban the use of EBT cards — or food stamps — to purchase items such as tattoos, porn and jewelry. . . .

“I’m not going to do anything that makes vulnerable people beg for their benefits. . . ,” Patrick said, according to Wicked Local Hanson.

Patrick allowed bans on the use of EBT cards in establishments known for the sale of seemingly controversial items — such as tattoo parlors, gun shops, casinos, cruise ships, and adult entertainment facilities —- to stand.

House Minority Leader Brad Jones pointed out, however, that the items slated to be banned — such as porn and guns — could still be purchased at other facilities.

    Perhaps they need to take a look at where the Governor has 'investments'?

    IF they are purchasing Porn, Jewelry, Tattoos, going on Cruises, taking vacations to exotic locales, purchasing weapons, obtaining illegal drugs ..
    it is evident that they are not .. 'vulnerable' ..
    (since these are not necessities for life .. they are luxury goods .. and as such .. the Taxpayers should not be paying for these things).

    These welfare benefits must be so good for their economy they don't want to ban them.
