Were the bombers receiving benefits?

Grassley makes the link, but doesn't
explain how they got the benefits.

Oh, there weren't any?

Grassley-ass and the GOPee need to stop exploiting this terrible tragedy for political purposes. Of course, if Repubbies had to do that on a permanent basis, their party would disappear.

And that'd be a GOOD thing for America...

You don't need to tell me that you don't think black people should eat gourmet food, live in the White House, or be famous golfers. It's the sort of thing I EXPECT from racists, in fact.

The difference, Dork, is that they VOLUNTARILY stood with him in hopes of getting real gun control. Your boys in the Senate let them down, because they're WILLING to give up dead schoolkids to pander to their constituents.

I'm not that fond of Obama, but I would've cheered their standing with him, yes. Screw you if you don't like it.

"Guns shouldn't be feared, criminals and crazies should be. Why is this blithering administration assisting states in cutting mental health services? Do they want another sandy Hook to fuel their gun control attempts? mmmmmmm Looks like the Boston Marathon bombers were immigrants, helps fuel the gubmint's immigration reform." Stupid politicians are SO predictable..........

Watching that progressive governor fall in step with the elitist agenda having the government goons violate the citizens rights as a "security" measure have the victim ghosts of evil governments from history spinning in their graves. The deed is done. And the loss of more constitutional rights signed, sealed and delivered. Talk about exploitation!

Grassley has no decency.

To exploit the deaths of three innocent
people including that of an eight year-old
child for his own crass political gain is
beyond repugnant.

The old fart should be horse whipped.
