The Boston Marathon Bombers Hated America, But Loved Our Welfare System
It would be irritating under any circumstances for someone to come to this country, become a citizen and then start collecting welfare benefits. If you can’t fend for yourself without taking welfare, why would we want you here in the first place?

According to the Boston Herald,
State officials confirmed last night that Tsarnaev, slain in a raging gun battle with police last Friday, was receiving benefits along with his wife, Katherine Russell Tsarnaev, and their 3-year-old daughter. The state’s Executive Office of Health and Human Services said those benefits ended in 2012 when the couple stopped meeting income eligibility limits. Russell Tsarnaev’s attorney has claimed Katherine – who had converted to Islam – was working up to 80 hours a week as a home health aide while Tsarnaev stayed at home.
