Taxpayers footed the bill for the family Tsarnaev for many years and at least until 2012. But if you want to know how much Massachusetts and other taxpayers shelled out to subsidize the Tsarnaevs' living expenses and education, you can forget it.
Democrat Governor Deval Patrick has shut down all information about their public assistance records, citing the terrorists' "privacy." You read that right.
Despite the distribution of public money to these terrorists, you---the public who paid for all of this---cannot find out what public money went to whom.
"Across the board, state agencies flatly refused to provide information about the taxpayer-funded lifestyle for the 26-year-old man and his brother and accused accomplice Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19," reports the Boston Herald.
EBT card status or spending? No comment.
College aid? Crickets.
Government-paid cellphones? They can’t say.
Taxpayer-subsidized housing? No details on that, sorry.

Taxpayer money. YOUR money. And yet, YOU'RE not entitled to any information as to where your money went.
This is the epitome of leftist madness, and one of many reasons why this country is going to hell.
By the way, if you're not outraged enough, taxpayers are already footing the bill for Dzhokhar's massive and mounting hospital bills. Oh, and we also paid for Tamerlan's attorney when he successfully fought domestic violence charges in 2009.
America. What a country. No wonder why so many terrorists want to come here. Enjoy the taxpayer-funded largesse, then kill the taxpayer.
