Massachusetts is the Welfare King, hands down. The state gives away cars to welfare recipients so they may look for work. But there are no
restrictions on the car's use.
The state also pays for tax, title, registration, insurance, and a membership in AAA auto club.
Amazing. The governor of Mass. is on Obama's list to replace outgoing SCOTUS judge David Souter. Yikes!
Free cars for poor fuel road rage
Gov. Deval Patrick’s 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 state’s fiscal crash - allows those who end up back on welfare to keep the cars anyway.
“It’s mind-boggling. You’ve got people out there saying, ‘I just lost my job. Hey, can I get a free car, too?’ ” said House Minority
Leader Brad Jones (R-North Reading).
