Governor Patrick Won't Release Terrorist Welfare Records
RUSH: The governor of Massachusetts is not going to release the welfare records of the Tsarnaev brothers. Deval Patrick says, nope, I'm gonna keep those welfare records under wraps. There nothing to see here. There's nothing for anybody to learn about the welfare records of Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. Nothing to see here. Let's move on.
USDA Markets Food Stamps to Illegals
RUSH: From the Washington Examiner: "USDA to Mexico: Illegal Immigrants Can Have Food Stamps -- With food stamp spending in the United States skyrocketing since the beginning of the recession, the Department of Agriculture is paying to promote food stamp usage to illegal immigrants for the sake of their American children, according to documents obtained by a government watchdog."
In fact, food stamp usage is now higher than at any time during the so-called Great Recession. "'The promotion of the food stamp program, now known as "SNAP" (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program), includes a Spanish-language flyer provided to the Mexican Embassy by the USDA with a statement advising Mexicans in the U.S. that they do not need to declare their immigration status in order to receive financial assistance,' Judicial Watch announced today. 'Emphasized in bold and underlined, the statement reads, "You need not divulge information regarding your immigration status in seeking this benefit for your children."'" 'Cause after all, they do not want to discourage any future Democrat voters, which is what this is about.
"The USDA said the program is designed to help American children." It is about future Democrat voters.
Dems Nervous About Obamacare
RUSH: "Democratic senators, at a caucus meeting with White House officials, expressed concerns on Thursday about how the Obama administration was carrying out the health care law they adopted three years ago. Democrats in both houses of Congress said some members of their party were getting nervous that they could pay a political price if the rollout of the law was messy or if premiums went up significantly."
In other words, folks, Democrat senators are begging Obama to find a way to put off the major cost increases and lie about Obamacare's terrible impact on business until after the midterms. It's all about 2014. They're getting nervous, pay a political price, i.e., lose reelection 2014. So let's lie about it some more and let's delay the implementation past 2014, Mr. President, that's what they want. Midterms clearly weighing heavily on the Democrat minds tells me that their internal polling must not be looking very good for taking the House, and maybe even holding the Senate.
So the Senate Democrats are begging Obama to find a way to put off these huge increases as part of the rollout of Obamacare and to lie about the rest of it until after they get reelected. That's what this means.
