Putting a ‘fat finger’ on welfare’s woes
As Gov. Deval Patrick’s welfare “leakage” continues draining billions from the state budget, the Democrats find themselves reduced to ever more farfetched reasons for not coming to the aid of U.S. citizens who actually, you’ll pardon the expression, work.What, praytell, does Rep. Conroy blame MA welfare fraud on?
As always, the liberals say it’s about “refugees,” not illegals. And there’s some court decision from 1977 — about 20 million illegal aliens ago. But the illegal-alien apologists always need new excuses, and this week’s welfare Alibi Ike is Rep. Tom Conroy (D-Wayland).
“You need to scrub the data and find out if it was fat fingers yielding bad data.”
Yes. That's exactly it. Millions of tax dollars are being wasted, thousands of dead people are getting EBT benefits, and thousands more are actively defrauding the system because the analysts were accidentally keying the wrong information.
Representative Conroy, that's BARELY a step above "the dog ate my constituent" here.
What's even more laughable is Cadillac Deval's assertion that the system is "99% percent accurate". We know of several thousand EBT cards that went to either dead recipients or fradulent ones. These are the ones that have been discovered. Does Governor Deval think that these are the only mistaken or fradulent benefits out there? Really? This man's not fit to run a lemonade stand, let alone a state.
So, there you have it - Massachusetts, proudly making California look rational...
That is all.
