Welfare recipient lives in $1.2 million waterfront house

And the circus continues in the banana republic known as the United States

The 2,500 square-foot home, which includes gardens and a boat dock, is valued at $1.2 million. And even though the couple has been receiving the benefits for nearly 10 years, records show that they accurately listed the address of their current home when applying for the state and federal benefits.

A federal official told KING 5 that the couple likely took advantage of a loophole, which allows low-income individuals to receive financial assistance to help them pay their rent and move away from housing projects. However, the law does not require officials to verify what type of home the benefits recipient is living in.

As if the million dollar home weren't enough, the supposedly low-income couple also gave money to various charities and traveled around the world to locales in Turkey, Tel Aviv and resort towns in Mexico, according to court records.

If you work at a job ask yourself if you think this is the best use of the taxes that are stolen from you by the government. Gots to keep paying for the "gibs me dat." However I am sure a vote for Newt Gingrich will solve this, right?
