Can I just have the "free" insurance, repairs, and AAA membership?

Here is the link to this outrage from MA.

Gov. Deval Patrick’s free wheels for welfare recipients program is revving up despite the stalled economy, as the keys to donated cars loaded with state-funded insurance, repairs and even AAA membership are handed out to get them to work.

But the program - fueled by a funding boost despite the state’s fiscal crash - allows those who end up back on welfare to keep the cars anyway.


The state pays for the car’s insurance, inspection, excise tax, title, registration, repairs and a AAA membership for one year at a total cost of roughly $6,000 per car.
At least this is only MA. I hope the President doesn't hear about this. I'll bet he could get a federal program going for the measly sum of $150 billion or so.

If we had a national program of cars for welfare people the possibilities for this are endless. Would loud stereos and fancy gold rims be included? You can't expect welfare people to drive to a job without those can you? Maybe the package should include a cell phone with unlimited minutes so they can call AAA. Seeing as this is in Massachusetts maybe they should include a life preserver in the package in case an ambitious future senator is on the program.
