Massachusetts Digging Deeper into the Tax Payers Pockets

There is no doubt that Massachusetts is an bastion of liberal lunacy and unfortunately for the poor tax payers, they are always on the hook for the bill. Liberals have not learned a thing from the forty years of 'great society' failures. They continue to labor under the erroneous notion that providing the poor and lazy with every need and want will someday yield prosperous and industrious citizens. They never will.

The most ludicrous example of this type of lunacy is a program being administered by the Massachusetts Department of Transitional Assistance (no, I am not making that up). This program provides cars to the poor, complete with car insurance, inspection, excise tax, title, registration, repairs and a AAA membership for one year. The DTA has been giving away about 65 cars per year since the program began in

Now if that isn't enough to peg out your outrage meter, the Boston Herald is reporting that Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick is planning to funnel up to $400,000 in additional funds into the program.

House Minority Leader Brad Jones (R-North Reading) said of the program, “I just don’t see this as a core function of government.” Now, there's the understatement of the year.

“I just don’t see this as a core function of government.”

Well, news flash, unfortunately this is exactly the function of government the current administration and 'leaders' in washington and liberal states want.

This is disgusting, but I am sure it will spread like wildfire across the nation, because, you know it wouldn't be "fair" for the "poor and needy" in Massachusetts to get cars and not in every other state...

Tell me, where do you think they are driving their cars? What kind of cars do you think they are getting? Where do they get the money to pay for gas? Are they job hunting with the cars? I get the feeling these are more rhetorical questions than anything else...
