No it was it your money and my money our our grandchildren will be paying off the the -- up free. The order and quote free money for welfare. Recipients. Some rush out because of rumors the money would vanish by the end of the day I assume that are already has vanished most of it. Rumors there's always rumors said Teresa Medina who waited for hours at a pale manic in Clinton hill Brooklyn to get 600 bucks for her three teenagers. The no strings attached money went the families receiving food stamps -- welfare. Every child between three and seventeen was eligible for two wondered box which worked out. To 813. 1845. Kids across the state including 500000 in the city of New York. It's -- help said Tonya Gomez of Chelsea who withdrew 600 dollars for kids.

That they shouldn't it people should be using planes last month just for the environment but also would just look. You know lead they -- people shouldn't be living it up in a bad recession like this so so why are we fixing up airports with this money.

System yet in his speech in 2003 set I happen. To be a proponent of a single Payer health care plan. That's seems to contradict 47 Portsmouth. Again in 2007. Senator Obama's that I don't think we're going to be able to eliminate employer coverage immediately there's going to be potentially some transition process I can envision a decade out -- fifteen years out -- twenty years out.
