Posted on 05/07/2009 6:55:43 PM PDT by Justaham
Gov. Deval Patricks 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 states fiscal crash - allows those who end up back on welfare to keep the cars anyway.

Where do I sign up?
Me too. All the recipients are probably the governor’s relathieves.
I am a one-eyed, drunken, Nicaraguan illegal immigrant on welfare. I cannot buy a car, because all my money goes for booze. I am mostly too drunk to walk, so can I have a free car?
This is Obama’s fault.
Who would this not anger?
Only if you promise to steal someone’s identity, get a driver’s license and register to vote for the Rats.
Worked as a supervisor at the Texas Workforce Center after Katrina (my background was in employment counseling, although I had been in the hurricane myself). We were giving away laptop computers, loaded with software, with a free ISP! Also, we gave welfare recipients Target & Wal-Mart gift cards, Texaco gas cards or bus passes, FREE child care, Section 8 subsidized housing, cash every month, Food Stamps, clothes for interviews, bulk foods, etc., etc. I knew theyd get around to cars someday. Next will be free HUD/Bank foreclosure houses.
It’s hard to comprehend.
It would be very cool for a one-eyed, drunken, Nicaraguan illegal immigrant on welfare. One who cannot buy a car, because all his money goes for booze. One who is mostly too drunk to walk, so can he have a free car?
Tax-payer funded. There. Fixed it.
Every single person that gets a free car.
Its hard to comprehend.
not for a liberal.
only a liberal could think this is a good idea.
Can you imagine what the policy meetings were like??
We can get X% off welfare if we only gave them a $30,000 car (of course it costs the government 50k to buy, but hey it isn’t there money.)
You drive, you’re too drunk to sing.
OOOO! OOOOOO! I want a Mustang! I want a Mustang! Can we pick the color, too? Make mine yellow.
