Sen. Frank Lautenburg (D-NJ) died in June.
The late NJ Senator left his wife, Bonnie, 60 million dollars. But today, the House of Representatives thinks she should get a $174,000.00 gift from American taxpayers!
By the way, the recommendation for the six figure taxpayer-funded gift to the late millionaire senator’s widow was included in the last line of the House Bill to defund Obamacare.
The Daily Mail reports that if the gift gets approved, Mrs. Bonnie Lautenburg won’t even have to pay taxes on it!
Here’s a short local media news clip with more information:
