Massachusetts representative Barney Frank (D) happily flings other people's money, taxpayer dollars, on government programs redistributing wealth such as Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and Obamacare, no matter the cost, no matter how incompetent and wasteful they are ignoring whether people actually want them. .
But in his personal life the senior representative is careful with his money, down to the last penny, demanding every discount as this incident reported in the New York Post demonstrates.
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."
Barney, now just pretend those tax dollars are the senior discounts of millions of hard working citizens who need to save every last penny. They'll even show you a valid ID.
