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.”
In less than three and a half years, Barack Obama's administration has redistributed a record amount of money to unbelievably fraud-laced programs. From welfare to food stamps, Medicare and Medicaid, and everything in between.
• "Not even the USDA knows what people are buying with food stamps"
• "Medicare fraud is estimated at between $60 and 80 billion annually"
• "Widespread fraud associated with the Stimulus"
In short, everything the government touches turns to crap. Which, each and every day, highlights the wisdom of the Constitution's Framers, who explicitly forbade government from entering these realms. It's time we returned to the Constitution's letter and meaning. And to throw all of these leftist bums out of office.
