    This is just the tip of the abuse iceberg. Your redistributed tax dollars at work.

    Boston MA - A convicted drug dealer — who cops said wanted to use cash from his taxpayer-funded EBT card to post bail — is the new face of welfare abuse, according to tough-minded lawmakers who are pushing the reform-resistant Patrick (an Obama buddy) administration for a crackdown.

    Kimball Clark, 45, was locked up Friday on drug-dealing charges — again — when he was overheard using his one phone call to ask the person on the other end of the line to “get my EBT card and go to the ATM and get the money to bail me out, get me outa here tonight,” according to a Boston police report.

    “It’s another outrage,” said state Rep. Shaunna O’Connell (R-Taunton), a member of the EBT Task Force who criticized the group for failing to push tough restrictions on the use of the controversial cards. “When we were on the EBT Card Commission, I fought to get bail bondsmen on that list of places where people could not use their EBT cards. They fought me on it and told me people can’t use their EBT cards in that way.”

  5. EBT is chump change. Check this out,

    "The tribe's Foxwoods casino, the largest in the Western Hemisphere, allowed members to live without concern for money, generating shared revenue stipends that once exceeded $100,000 annually for each adult."

    PS47 is in school. He won't be posting until the bus drops him off later.
  7. As usual,trolling rather then adding anything about the subject of the thread
  8. Try actually posting about a political subject rather then trolling for flame wars for a change
  9. What did you add to the "subject of the thread" with either of these posts IQ47?
