Isn’t it just amazing when a Democrat who has no problem with making the “little people” spend their hard-earned money makes a scene because he has to spend some. Massachusetts civil servant Barney Frank wants the rest of us to pay for mammoth tax increases and the Democrats’ bulls**t social programs, but he made a public spectacle of himself – again – because he didn’t receive a $1 senior discount.
Yes, I said one dollar.
Massachusetts Congressman Barney Frank caused a scene when he demanded a $1 senior discount on his ferry fare to Fire Island’s popular gay haunt, The Pines, last Friday. Frank was turned down by ticket clerks at the dock in Sayville because he didn’t have the required Suffolk County Senior Citizens ID. A witness reports, “Frank made such a drama over the senior rate that I contemplated offering him the dollar to cool down the situation.”
Good job, Massachusetts; thanks for keeping this tool in Congress.
