Tsarnaev family received $100G in benefits

Posted by   + Show Post


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.

“I can assure members of the public that this committee will actively review every single piece of information we can find because clearly the public has a substantial right to know what benefits, if any, this family or individuals accused of some horrific crimes were receiving,” said state Rep. David Linsky (D-Natick), the committee’s chairman.

Linsky’s committee has requested documents from the DTA, the state’s Medicaid director and Health and Human Services Secretary John Polanowicz. But so far the committee has not released the records publicly, citing a privilege the DTA is asserting under state law.

Transitional assistance officials also told the Herald tonight that the agency was conducting its own investigation into whether Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s family ever notified the DTA about his extended trip to Russia, and has since expanded its probe to include a full history of the benefits received by the entire Tsarnaev family.

Obama is hiding the machine because, well, you know he's a Muslim that wants to kill all Americans. Lol

Not saying I don't believe it, because I would not doubt it one bit.

But I'd like to see this proof versus hearing it from some trusted source who cannot reveal who they are.

 what happened to Chaney?

Actually I like that he golfs all the time.   Every time he is out golfing, he isn't screwing up something else in the country.

I don't understand the point of this...they received help, just like millions of other families in the US...

How does that equate ro the 2 sons being terrorists?

Unless you are trying to say that all welfare recipients are terrorists, or will become terrorists, I don't get tje point here...
