Tsarnaev family received $100G in benefits
Boston Herald ^ | April 29, 2013 | Chris Cassidy

Posted on 04/30/2013 7:17:35 AM PDT by yoe

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.

Over 10 years ~ 2002 to 2012 ~ didn't get picked up in this excerpt ~ are they perhaps trying to cover up the fact we already have this story running in a recently active thread TODAY?

$10,000 per year for a family of 4 is not all that big a deal ~ but if there were caseworker checks on these guys I wouldn't be surprised to see Supplemental Social Security ~ they give it to you immediately upon getting a diagnosis of schizophrenia.

The dead guy no longer has privacy rights. We need to see his medical records!

$10,000 a year isn’t much? I’ll take it.

Our Govt hands out our tax dollars to every foreign person that comes here. The foreigners that come here know our system better than we do. It just infuriates me to no end. They end up living off our govt. and they let them. I have a family member that is married to a non US Citizen and hear all kinds of ways they get money from the govt. Married foreigners can bring their wives here but don’t tell our govt they are legally married and they get to receive more benefits from govt. My family members inlaws came to visit for 6 months and they filled out paperwork and said they were living here so they got SSI benefits and paid by our govt.
When are the handouts going to stop?

These legislators are such phonies. What the hell do they need to investigate. Why don't they just read the laws they passed and they will see this family was eligible for every red cent. If you give someone a house and food for 10 years, how much do you think that costs??????

I would tell these boneheads that the problems isn't giving assistance to someone who became a terrorist, it socialism in the first place!!

They would say: when the pig is bled out.

This is the big lie: that ours is still the land of the free and the home of the brave. Ours is the land of moochers, multinationals, and a waning class of individual producers. Yeah, we're brave... But not brave enough to defend our borders, language and culture. On the whole, we are immoral, lazy, and stupid. We invite millions of Tsarnaevs to our party, get them drunk on "freedom" (free stuff), prostitute our culture to them, and wonder how our party got out of hand. Gee, I wonder? Oh, and here's the best part - more and more Americans "blame the Jews." For Islam! Gotta love it.

Does anyone doubt that the Undocumented Democrats (Illegal Aliens) in this country are not receiving the same level of taxpayer-funded federal, state, county, and city benefits?

Yet look at Benghazi, Mexico Fast and Furious 2 and 1 and the cover up by the Gubmint. Notice this is the Boston Herald. Just watch Gov Deval patrick with illegal resident Obama will have the FBI, IRS and other Gubmint agencies at the Boston Herald. Because it did not toe the red line that the Gubmint drew in the blood at the Boston Marathon. There is a cover-up that will expose Obama and patrick

$10,000 for four people ~ to live in Boston, which is an expensive place to live.

I suspect they used public welfare resources as a supplemental stipend to their regular employment ~ which probably involved murdering people and/or disposing of their bodies.

The Boston mob was always looking for such people. Stealing from the public purse was a minor issue in that lifestyle.

We've had articles here in recent months where we discussed welfare mothers with but a single chil' getting upwards of $65,000 worth of stuff per year ~ $2,500 per person aint no thang compared to $37,500 per year per person.

That is a huge difference ~ 15 X as much for one recipient versus another!

Don't get hung up on $100,000 over 10 years for 4 people when you have $65,000 per year for the next 25 years! Plus, you get to pay their health insurance.

Yet they were well-dressed, drove nice cars, and Mommy stole from Lord & Taylor, not Wal-Mart. They had some other source of income.

We pay way over 10k a year in taxes so we supported this lazy, foreign family. So yeah, it peeves me that they got a single dime.

My daughter works with a American born hispanic that of course has a full time job and she gets assistance by filling out paperwork and just playing dumb. she said she can get assistance if she tells them she doesn’t speak english.
Just think of the billions wasted every year for all these handouts. Everytime time I go to Walmart I’m stuck in line behind someone that has food stamp debit cards they are using to buy a bunch of crap.

Which means you've re-read all the posts on the thread and realize that your complaint is about public welfare, not about $2,500 per year being a huge amount of money.

Now I'm not one to turn down found money, but we are all sitting here staring at computers and using systems that cost us more than that!

They could shop at Harris Teter I suppose, but they wouldn't get as much for their money.

I go there when I don't feel up to the lines ~ but when I want to buy cheap I go to Aldis in the morning ~ no lines!

Plus how much more money in the direct tax subsidy, the Earned Income Tax Credit????

I would bet that there is another $50,000 to $100,000 there.

The EITC is targeted at the working poor. If they weren't working they didn't pay income tax or FICA so they didn't qualify.

$10,000 per year for a family of 4 is not all that big a deal

Well of course not muwiwa..

It's revealed American hating foreigners received, $100,000 dollars, confiscated by government from the stupid working tax payers.....Well it's just not that big of a deal...

In fact, millions of other foreigners and illegals are doing the same...

It's just not a big deal, right muwiiwa?

The bomber’s wife was working 80 hours per week so that he could be a “stay at home terrorist/dad.” They had a minor child, so the probably also got the tax credit for the kid.

The bomber’s mom was a massage therapist. At one time she worked in a salon, where she would have been on the payroll. Then later moved into her apartment (maybe working for only cash).

The bomber’s father was employed at an auto repair shop.

So they did work some jobs and they probably were considered “working poor” and paying income tax.

This loser terrorist family should never have been allowed into this country. They should not have received one penny of assistance. What’s with people stealing taxpayers’ money? LIBs who promote this crapola are truly mentally ill.

Different debate ~ these people were here as refugees ~ probably a case where others were uncomfortable in their presence.

I see no reason why we had to import more such folks ~ my impression was that we were oversubscribed in that department.

$100,000 over 10 years still isn't all that much money these days and the other problems with this fambly would seem to be something we might rather focus on ~ like they are ALL CRAZY!!

Don't count on them paying taxes.

The mad bomber's wife went into her 90 hour per week deal and they went off welfare. Most likely medicare paid most of her hourly rates BTW.

I still think they were into murdering people for cash, and frankly, worrying about the stealing they were doing is just crazy when there's so much more serious stuff to worry about here.

You are nuts if you think I"m going to allow you to cover up their murders and go over here and count what was undoubtedly chump change compared to what they got paid for their main job.

Why do you want to let them get away with it?

Let’s find a taxpayer that paid ~$10k in taxes for each of the last 10 years and hold that person responsible for facilitating and funding Boston.
