New York Post columnist Cindy Adams wrote this random thought today – “Where did the Boston suspects get such money? To travel . . . to buy . . .”
Granted one has to assume they received funding from outside sources to carry out some of their actions.
But sadly, part of that funding at least came from the state of Massachusetts itself.
Perhaps I was wrong. Perhaps they didn’t need any more than their welfare benefits to fund six-month trips to Russia. A new report indicates that the Tsarnaev family received a shocking amount of welfare assistance from the state of Massachusetts – over $100,000.
Via the Boston Herald:
The Tsarnaev family, including the suspected terrorists and their parents, benefited from more than $100,000 in taxpayer-funded assistance — a bonanza ranging from cash and food stamps to Section 8 housing from 2002 to 2012, the Herald has learned.
“The breadth of the benefits the family was receiving was stunning,” said a person with knowledge of documents handed over to a legislative committee today.
The state has handed over more than 500 documents to the 11-member House Post Audit and Oversight Committee, which today met for the first time and plans to call in officials from the Department of Transitional Assistance to testify.
Taxpayer funded terrorism.
In other words, Tsarnaev hated Americans … except for when they were giving him money.
