Governor Patrick Still In Denial Over EBT Fraud

Stop asking me about EBT, dammit!

Listen to Gov. Deval Patrick use the “I” word on EBT fraud:
Boston News, Weather, Sports | FOX 25 | MyFoxBoston
“IF there’s a ‘there’ there.”

After years of reports on EBT use at out-of-state casinos, in tattoo parlors in Vegas, by crooks making bail , drug dealers and Islamist terrorists, etc, etc–Governor Patrick is still in denial. No matter how many thousands of “we-can’t-find-em” recipients and untraceable purchases, Gov. Patrick insists that there’s no real problem.

So if dead EBTers buying booze in the Caribbean ISN’T an EBT problem–what is?

Natural Truth of the Day

For several months now, whenever the topic of enrollment in the Affordable Care Act came up, I've been saying that it was too soon to tell its ultimate effects. We don't know how many people have paid for their new insurance policies, or how many of those who bought policies were previously uninsured. For that, I said, we will have to wait for Census Bureau data, which offer the best assessment of the insurance status of the whole population... I stand corrected: These data won't be available at all. Ever.-- Megan McArdle, Bloomberg View.
