    Free cars for Massachusetts Welfare Darlings.......:singing:

    News:
    Gov. Deval Patrick’s free wheels for welfare recipients program is revving up despite the stalled economy, as the keys to donated cars loaded with state-funded insurance, repairs and even AAA membership are handed out to get them to work.

    But the program - fueled by a funding boost despite the state’s fiscal crash - allows those who end up back on welfare to keep the cars anyway.

    “It’s mind-boggling. You’ve got people out there saying, ‘I just lost my job. Hey, can I get a free car, too?’ ” said House Minority Leader Brad Jones (R-North Reading).

    The dingobats are always bragging about how these people never vote for Republicans, I wouldn't vote for a republican either if I could get all this free sh!t.

    Pant Suit Hillary has been trying for years to get a bill that would allow Prisoners to vote because she knows they will all vote Democrat, "Criminals Love The Democrats"

    Perspective, of course, is lacking.

    The state pays for maintenance and insurance but does not buy the cars. About 65 cars go out a year, and only 20 percent of recipients go back on welfare and lose the car benefits, but do not lose the car, which was not provided by the state tin the first place.

    So is sounds like you should be angry with the Lutheran charity instead.

    Facts are a bear, aren't they?

    The cars are the only thing that's donated. The cars are fixed up, insured, and registered by you and me. On top of that, the deadbeats get a free AAA membership (well, free for them anyway), and their excise tax is paid. If the car breaks down, guess what? Yup, we pay to fix it. Oh, and remain a deadbeat? No problem, keep the car so you can sell it to your buddy for a $1, or trade it for a new big screen TV. The $6,000 does NOT include the cost to administrate the program, which would include the office, salaries, benefits, etc needed to create, and operate Freebie Motors.

    Wouldn't it be cheaper to give deadbeats a monthly bus pass? I guess doing that wouldn't allow the hacks in the state to hire 10-20 of their friends and cousins to administer this giveaway.

    BTW, this program started under Romney, for anyone paying attention.

    Seems like a good program, especially since it breaks about even and is helping people work instead of stay on welfare. It should have some protection though against those who might take a job only to get a car and then quit the job.

    Honestly I have no problem with people getting a car,provided their excuse for not working is "I have no way to get there". Well now you do.

    It's the bennies attached that are a bit much; EVERYTHING taken care of for a year,including AAA. The only thing missing is a driver, just in case you're too tired,hungover,or crazed, to drive yourself to work.

    I actually like this idea of eliminating the transportation excuse from the list of reasons why people can continue to leech off our tax dollars in the form of welfare.

    That said, I'm tired of subsidizing people. Remember when Oprah gave everybody a car? "You get a car, you get a car,and YOU get a car!" I forget what kind of car she gave, I think it was American made actually but they may have been Toyota's. Anyway,as grandstaged as that may have been,at least it came out of her own funds not ours. MA subsidizes a lot of people to some degree or another. OTOH monied people live/own property here; it's like the model fuedal state;)

    And it's still not clear who gets to pay the law suits from crimes/accidents committed using the MA tax payers (aka sucker) insured cars.
