Everyday the welfare and food stamp recipients are buying steaks, lobsters, Pepsi, Cigarettes, ETC.
EVERY FREAKING DAY.................and WE keep paying, and paying, and paying.
Anyone on gov't. assistance (unemployment excluded) should not be allowed to smoke, drink beer, buy name-brand when generic is available. If they want that go get a job and support yourself. I as a tax-payer paying ALOT don't want to get other people drunk on my dime.
I agree with all except Sarah Palin. She is not the one who requested the clothes....The others were just thieves padding there expense accounts... There is a big difference. Want to talk about padding expenses'... Try Mrs. Obama and the dozen assistants she added costing the taxpayers over a million a year. Never did any other first lady ever have more than two... And some wonder why we are 16 Trillion in debt...Guess MSN missed a big one...
Has anyone looked at what is spend on Welfare and where a lot of people that are getting it spending the money.
If you are on welfare and can go to the Casino Strip Clubs and buy liquor you don't need welfare it should be taken out all together that would save Taxpayers some real money.
$20 million dollar vacation wouldn't be worthy of discussion if the idiots writing hadn't mentioned Palin's expenses. By why bother reporting the truth. Let's see...$150,000 raised by campaign contributors, vs. $20 million of taxpayer dollars. But again, WHY bother with the truth. It's just money
This is a drop in the bucket. 5 of the top 10 richest counties in the US all border DC.
Most people buy houses to live in them long term. Since the politicians flat out told you
they don't give a damn about you. They must know you can't or won't do anything.
A welfare state is giving free room and board to people who don't do anything but exist in this country. We now have established a welfare state for the wealthy and they know they have free lunch for life. As long as they have people fighting against each other they have job security.
welll what do you expect but yet more abuses of the system under the RECORD WELFARE ob obama?
he claims to have created 5 milion jobs; yet we have NOW record welfare and record food stamps?
gee tink anybody is gaming the system; cheating?
the Left wants it both ways
idiots and hypocrites
This is nothing new: I have been a Hospital based Physician( ER DOC) for three decades and have "heard and seen it all". Ask any seasoned ER staffer about the nice clothes, jewelry, cars, iPhone,etc that the Obot under class has while claiming poverty and having "No Insurance and I know my rights" or Medicaid...only the GOP standing tall and united can stop "our lord and savior", "That One!", the Redistributor In Chief from doing what he wants-destroying the job creators-like the Corporation that owns the hospital and pays several THOUSAND of us to work for THEM!
This is nothing.
Business owners routinely run thousands and thousands of personel expense items through company books every year. If they don't... they're just stupid... so please don't tell me they don't.
The amounts are not sufficient enough to get the attention of the IRS... it would cost more to conduct an audit than what they'd get back in taxes AND penalties (usually).
I mean... every election cycle politicians basically tell "small business" owners to go ahead and commit tax fraud... "Small business is the backbone of America..." In other words... keep doing what you're doing... we're not coming after ya! (and keep sending us those checks!)
Those items in the article... peanuts compared to billions of tax revenues lost to sanctioned fraud.
