Deval Patrick, Massachusetts Governor, vetoes a common sense bill that would limit food stamp use. With overwhelming bipartisan support, the Massachusetts legislature pass a bill that would ban EBT food stamps from being used for “tattoos, guns, porn, body piercings, jewelry, fines, and bail”. (Boston Herald).

The Governor says those that passed this bill are guilty of “political grandstanding”.

State Sen. Robert Hedlund (R-Weymouth):

“A lot of people in the Legislature, and a lot of taxpayers for that matter, believe there are a lot of problems with our EBT system… Some of us have worked hard to try to address those problems. Some of us actually take our jobs seriously, and to be accused of political grandstanding, I think it’s irresponsible and immature of the governor to speak that way.”

    Well, with “overwhelming support”, they should be able to override his veto if their Constitution provides for it.
