Yes, actually, it seems that there's a bit of a loophole:
Under current law, those convicted of crimes such as rape and murder are disqualified from receiving welfare benefits, Maine’s Bangor Daily News reports.
Terrorists, however, are not. Rep. Bruce Poliquin (R-Maine) is introducing a bill to close that hole.
Maine Public Broadcasting Network reported that Poliquin cited an example of five accomplices to the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing at a press conference Thursday in his Lewiston, Maine, office.
“Those individuals now are serving three-to-six-year prison sentences. When they leave prison they could qualify to receive food stamps,” Poliquin said. “I think this is an insult to Maine taxpayers, to American taxpayers, who may be asked to provide welfare for those who were successful in killing Americans.”
Well, here we have yet another example of those dastardly Republican efforts to deny poor people their due because they hate poor people.
