If Democrats are to spend the USA into total economic collapse before the public wakes up to what they doing, they are going to have to hurry. That’s why they are making sure that EBT cards continue to be used to make cash withdrawals of other people’s money at casinos, bars, porn shops, and strip clubs, even as the nation staggers toward bankruptcy.
Democratic [New York] state lawmakers, led by Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, have blocked welfare-reform legislation that would end “sinful spending” by preventing people receiving government benefits from withdrawing taxpayer-funded cash at jiggle and gin joints, The Post has learned.
To justify the unjustifiable, Dems fall back on their old friend moral equivalence. We are told there is no difference between drawing a paycheck from Big Government, and feeding off it as a parasite.
One reform opponent, Assemblyman Richard Gottfried (D- Manhattan), compared welfare recipients to municipal employees and said the government shouldn’t dictate how the taxpayer-funded checks are spent.
“Last I checked, this is America, and if somebody wants to propose that policemen, firefighters, sanitation workers, state legislators and other people paid with government funds be restricted as to what they use their money for, let them propose it,” Gottfried said.
Last time I checked, this is America in name only, because commies like Gottfried are running it.
