Man Charged With Dealing Heroin in a School Zone Very Nearly Bails Himself Out With an EBT Welfare Card

When it comes to illustrating the multi-faceted failures of Barack Obama and his Democrat-media slags, this story is the funniest thing I've read all day:

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 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.”

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.

Hat tip: BadBlue.

Corruption, yes the "c" word. Doesn't anyone ever ask how all of this fraud continues to happen? It is because the government is corrupted from the HNIC down to the town dogcatcher. The limited choices we face each and every election are a reflection of the fact that neither party wants to see anything change because they are all beneficiaries of...CORRUPTION. Nothing will get better if and when Romney gets into the Oval Office, because he will not be able to interdict the pervasive corruption rampant in the political system. Find a way to root it out or we will follow the Roman Empires' demise.

It is the 17th Amendment mentality Doug; it's everywhere and it has no color.
Don't just poopoo this comment away- give it some thought: The 17th Amendment is having the same affect on all of America that the civil rights mentality has had on America's black communities.
Love to have you on board with this too!
