Certainly it wasn't very -- only had the Obama signs on your car. And that Elizabeth the war in the fake Indian for a sit at a major car. They can't -- event. It's great it's it's just that you know again it's it it makes and it makes it interesting and also.

From -- that this was a big lawsuit was filed by Elizabeth Warren now senator Elizabeth Warren's daughter. On behalf of -- moon -- groups saying that. The the the people look the welfare offices we wouldn't call welfare office we called -- to. The bta. Bureaucrats had not been. Proactive enough. In seeking out the welfare recipients the lay abouts the gimme gals the -- guys. To make them my take it to make it clear to them that they can register to vote at the welfare offices. So the state was forced to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars probably over a million dollars to send out first class letters -- First class prepaid postage. Included in the first class letters telling the welfare recipients that they can vote. In the they could register to vote now it turns out. No one -- -- -- -- gonna tell us it's of course but the Harold. Filed a Freedom of Information Act request. And asked. How many of the letters came back. -- return to sender. Address unknown. No such number no such zone. 191000. 191000. Quote unquote people were getting. EBT cards refilled every month direct deposited. And apparently they don't exist. 191000. Will be talking with Schiavo -- -- about that from a -- I mean are we surprised now. Do we want to at least rub it in the snouts of the moon bats yes we go.

And yet the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Keeps sending money out to. At least 191000. People. A month. Who don't exist apparently. They don't exist and we can't do we think about it and we don't wanna put. Put for a wide -- on these EDT cards electronic benefit transfer cards because that would be. To expect that's what the all the people from the EDT neighborhoods say they say we can't afford this we can't -- seven dollars per card.

In there working and they're getting they're already on their state pensions and there are they're just were there working enough to get the forty quarters. Americans need forty quarters to get into the Social Security system means ten years. I think any thinking teachers in this state do today. So security tax could be wrong about that. I think. You know you may I don't know I don't all the I don't know one way or another I know they paid Social Security taxes in the past before they got to be teachers. Analyze and again like -- -- lot of public sector people are expecting. Two while work once they retire early because they can retire pretty early they're expecting too worked up those forty quarters and and get on -- Social Security as well. Outside taught as substitutes are about ten years ago and I did Weyers I don't know it's changed. Since then are not you know if not then. This just about doorway Obama. You know. Paying office his his. You know what I you know what I like about this Davis and all these people on the -- woman Regis some of these some of these posts as we go along but the -- all these people think that they're gonna get Social Security. They think they think the system is legit but someone's gonna take care. I mean that they that they understand they have they have they looked at the actual were real tables here. To see that eventually is gonna be means testing here -- sooner rather than later they're probably gonna be cut off. Here it is. The -- here this is for Mac Solomon. The temporary stimulus reduction expired and Social Security is a good thing and you'll get the money back if you're lucky to live that long. Know you'll be lucky that your you it's a good thing if you. You'll get the money back if you're lucky that Social Security lives that long there's a better chance you will live longer than Social Security. Thanks for the call -- 18774694322.

To remember Mary Beth -- and she was the worst public safety secretary in the history of Massachusetts. She was one of presided over the cover up of ten -- auto accident -- they said he was doing. The state police say he was doing 65 miles an hour he was actually 208 miles an hour. She was the one who presided over the state police crime lab when all the all all the evidence was being painted. By the by the woman -- -- and now it's gonna end up costing us hundreds of millions of dollars of Mark Buehrle and dollars she was one who presided over the the pharmacy. The -- Framingham. That produced all the poison that skilled. Over thirty people around the country and is gonna cost us more hundreds of millions of dollars. As soon resume Mary Allen. Manning left the governor's counsel be be warned the Democrat who. Was the watchdog of the governor's council who made sure that the the ruling terrible people didn't get the judgeships. She laughed at that noon on on Wednesday. And it about two minutes past noon on Wednesday guess what happened they nominated Mary -- effort for a judgeship. Mary Beth heparin and by the way is the daughter of the guy who was moved out of the courtship of the Boston juvenile court in two with judgeship. To make room for Jackie Bulger. Brother Y eighty culture. Who has since been convicted of -- felony for lying and obstructing justice tour manager. So she comes from a proud family packs. And they want to make sure that nobody we predict this months ago. That she was gonna get the job and that the law that denies it so this is what -- there and now she's been replaced by country club brawl. The former high share of Suffolk County who was the last time she was in the jail was walked out with an escort from the sheriff's office. 1877469432218774694322. We're to talk about the 191000.

With their pension and health care contributions that they don't put in but they -- you know they withdraw or the other -- much -- in. You know health care and what they've put in an essential. What they do it. That's true that is why we have we have an unfunded pension liability in the commonwealth the man bites in most states. That's why Medicare I don't consider that Medicare attracts some Republicans can demagogue and make this. Well it's the only about it now but it's really your contribution and we are contributing to something that people would -- -- -- cost us the ball club. Com here's the problem. The president of the United States said that nobody under the that made under 400000. Initially wanted to make it 200000. He had to push it up to 400000 he said nobody making under 400000. Was gonna have a tax increase under the. What are what is happened to contribute to what just tell me what is happened now. It's not a tax okay so it's -- last year are last year are -- fifty well.

Win if you make 50000. You're gonna make a thousand dollars next last well this year how is that not attacked. A contributing to -- -- and get back it's that. -- what should not I had actually. -- -- and we -- men and pop -- but said you know you think about African swept. Because we. Because you know your taxes were going up and neither do I knew that all the other people voted for Obama because you know why did not because they weren't paying attention. -- What I -- so why all these people writing and do you say I'm sure I know my taxes were going up. I don't know why don't Republicans in the red states okay. All the ones that complain if you take a look at people collectively BP and federal funding. But think what -- -- that much more itself that it that's what people are some people are also -- so please don't there's. Police in voting for the welfare state is voting against your own interest where the war were rich -- the problem is here that the people that on the do you wander around all these other places. They say they didn't think their taxes going up they actually believe this guy. They they would keep tests come back and told them it was raining that believe. By the way I don't don't hold your breath about the governor I just have to spell your last name for the press office it definitely bode well for me that's okay thanks for the call -- 18774694322187746.
