They’re on the dole — and watching the pole.

Welfare recipients took out cash at bars, liquor stores, X-rated video shops, hookah parlors and even strip clubs — where they presumably spent their taxpayer money on lap dances rather than diapers, a Post investigation found.

Some allege this is because many of these places have ATMs that don’t charge any fees. Others dispute this.

This is what happens when the parasite class rules. Our society is dominated by degenerates. And, The Dear Leader and his socialist mob do not see anything wrong with it.

Payroll taxes should be deducted from all taxpayer funded benefits like welfare, food stamps, and unemployment. They will eventually benefit from SS and Medicare/Medicaid programs. Let them pay in. Just consider it a 6.2 percent across the board pay cut for free loaders.

How can this be posted under breaking news? It’s been this way for decades.

The last President that actually address the nation and talked about the problem was Reagan (remember “welfare queens”?) And despite his best efforts, he barely a dent in it.

I’ve posted several links here to the Heritage Organization that spell out the problem in fact based detail.

Try this one for example:

http://www.heritage.org/research/commentary/2012/10/welfare-is-at-an-all-time-high

Welfare is BIGGER than Social Security, bigger than Medicare, and bigger than the Military. And it doesn’t seem to even be on the national radar!

Appearently welfare recipients need auto parts cause
the parts store up town has a sign that says they
accept EBT cards. I suppose it could just be for
the candy and cokes they sell.....ya suppose?

“Some allege this is because many of these places have ATMs that don’t charge any fees.”

I’m surprised that Napoleon Bloomberg hasn’t jumped in here and made the ATM servicers pony up a “pole” tax.

Some states allow EBT withdrawal from an ATM.

Most states prohibit EBT money from being spent on anything other than food and drink and a new federal law prohibits ATM withdrawals for “sinful spending.”

I live in NYC (unfortunately, very unfortunately..help!) and know quite a few people who are getting by the skin of their teeth, and this year it’s going to get even tougher as they pay more taxes: One friend in particular who is a couple months behind in rent is facing eviction. He makes $50k a year (before taxes) and from what I learned he will be taking home $2000 less which is $2000 less he has for rent. So now he will go from being 2 months behind in rent to 3 or 4 months behind and will most certainly be evicted along with his family.

And for what? So bums can party it up in stripper bars.

It’s a vicious cycle. The outright theft of peoples earnings creates more dependents on the government which = more likely votes for Democrats out of fear of losing government assistance which is just the way the communist I mean Democrat party like it.

Once people learn government income is tax-free, they sign up.

Who needs the IRS?

Ubama and the rats believe this is entirely appropriate.
Who are we to tell the Democrat moocher base how they should spend their hard-bummed money?

Leftists don’t care - because Gov’t money spent at strip clubs and on booze is still counted as Keynesian “stimulus” flowing into the economy.

I’ve been in a strip bar or two and believe me, I’ve have NEVER seen a “no fee” ATM in one. Never. In fact they’re usually quite expensive, at least 5 bucks per transaction.

I think this is probably more true than is given credit for. Most poor people are better behaved than given credit for.

I really feel sorry for welfare recipients. They are such shameless, ignorant, lazy asses that are completely at fault for their life circumstances and unwilling to do anything about it. They breed like rabbits with multiple partners creating future generations of welfare recipients. I wish they would get educated and be productive members of society since it makes me seem to be such an angry and mean conservative. Really, I am not. I want what is best for all Americans. Being on welfare is neither good for the recipient or that taxpayer.

The standard government response to this is, “It’s THEIR money. They can do whatever they want with it.”

Kalifornia caught some of their welfare recipients cashing EBTs at ATMs in Hawaii. I mean, if it’s good enough for Dear Leader then the “poor” want their “fair share” as well. No word that anybody got kicked off the rolls either.

We get a local magazine advertising restaurants and many of them advertise "now taking EBT".

Can't believe the working who can't afford to go to these restaurants are paying for others to eat out.

Don’t worry, the 2014 tax hike will be even bigger than the 2013 tax hike is, and to make up for those who don’t pay any taxes, those who do will be forced to pay their fair share. Thanks 4buttons.

the architect of the new welfare state spends his welfare check on Hawaii vacations, golf, ice cream and fundraising trips. So why shouldn’t they get a little taxpayer funded fun?

Nobody holds lifetime welfare trolls personally responsible, so why would they be responsible for how they spend “their” money?

I mean, really?
