Two days ago, the Democrat hacks on Beacon Hill rejected a bill which would have required the state to confirm the citizenship of anyone receiving any form of welfare benefits. The vote was suprisingly close. Who were some of the hacks who voted to allow the fraud to continue? Tax cheats, naturally. And a lot of them.
Howie Carr has the goods:
The House vote to crack down on illegals on welfare was much closer than before – 82-75. A lot of Democrats can hear the footsteps – taxpayers’ footsteps.
But the illegals and their hack enablers won, and as I study the transcript on the debate, I see the only words you need to understand the debate: “Rep. Cabral yielded (to) Rep. Swan.”
Those were the two guys double-teaming the taxpayers on behalf of illegals. What a coincidence that Rep. Cabral, who was born in the Azores, once had a lien placed on his house for nonpayment of income taxes. He decided to hand off to Rep. Ben Swan of Springfield, who has likewise forgotten to pay both his income taxes and his real-estate property taxes.
The Republicans were mentioning Obama’s illegal-alien Auntie Zeituni, and how she’s in public housing in Southie. Deadbeat Cabral felt compelled to defend her.
The solon sniffed. “When you apply for asylum, you qualify for public benefits until that decision is made.”
Asylum – that’s what you apply for if you’re an illegal alien looking to go on welfare but you’re too old to drop an anchor baby.
Here are some other Democrats who voted the pro-illegal line. Rep. Marie St. Fleur, notorious tax deadbeat from Boston who is angling for a six-figure City Hall job from Mumbles Menino. Rep. Byron Rushing of the South End, who failed to file income taxes in 2002, and in the years between 1990 and 1995. Rep. David Linsky of Natick, a non-filer in 2002 and 2003. Rep. Anne Gobi of Spencer, didn’t file in 2002 and 2003 . . .
Just another day in the hackorama.
