Massachusetts Gov. Vetoes Bill That Would Ban Purchase of Porn and Tattoos With Food Stamps

Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick, the Democrat whose candidacy has often served as template from which President Barack Obama has liberally borrowed, vetoed a bill that would reform what could be purchased with the state’s EBT food stamp cards. The bill Patrick vetoed would have banned EBT cards from being used for “tattoos, guns, porn, body piercings, jewelry, fines, and bail,” according to the Boston Herald.

In a veto statement, Patrick accused those who wanted EBT card reforms of “political grandstanding” even though these reforms were passed with bipartisan support in the Massachusetts legislature.

Thanks to Patrick, even as the Bay State has to tighten its budget like every other state government, food stamp recipients in Massachusetts will continue to be able to use taxpayer-funded monies to buy porn or get tattoos and body piercings.
