ÂFree Money Man,Â Matthew Lesko, (http://www.lesko.com) has been trying to get the New York Consumer Protection Board to stop misrepresenting government money programs. In their efforts to rid the nation of fraudulent companies who scam consumers with promises of government grants, the New York CPB has also mislead consumers about the facts concerning programs that are in place to help consumers.
In an NBC News interview on January 28, 2005, CPB Chairman, Teresa Santiago tells consumers ÂThere is no free government money to pay your personal bills. There isnÂt. That is a myth.Â This statement has been proven to be 100 percent inaccurate.
The facts about government programs show that the CPB is hurting consumers by discouraging them from applying to programs that they are entitled to and statements by Rush Limbaugh on a recent show also attest to this.
On March 2, 2005 Limbaugh discussed with a caller, who works for a consumer credit counseling agency, the various ways that people with high credit debt can get free government help:
ÂBesides that, for the people that are coming into your company, we got government programs. We got unemployment insurance, food stamps, aid to dependent children, Medicare, Medicaid, Section 8 housing, general welfare. We've got more government programs than anybody can probably catalog. We've got government programs people probably can't even find. People (in the government) go to work there every day, but nobody knows who they are, where they are, where the office is, but we're giving away money in this country left and right, just gotta know how to get it.Â (see http://www.rushlimbaugh.com Rush 24/7, Wednesday March 2, 2005, How El Rushbo Escaped Debt)
Matthew Lesko, a New York Times Best Selling author, who has also written more than one hundred books on government money programs, is fighting for consumers to be aware that only 12 percent of all government handouts go to the poor and that the governmentÂs, so called, Âgeneral welfare programsÂ can put money in the hands of families making up to $38,000.
Government studies show that 50 million consumers are not taking advantage of even the basic programs:
- 4 million senior missing out on up to $1,000 from Medicare
- 6 million families are missing out on free health insurance for their kids
- 10 million families missing out on up to $4,000 for groceries
- 800,000 College Students missing out on up to $4,050
- Single mothers leave an average of $673 per year in unclaimed child support payments
- 29 million seniors citizens donÂt know that they are eligible for free medical procedures
If the Bush Administration is spending millions of dollars trying to find these 50 million people who deserve this money, why is the Pataki Administration spending government money trying to prevent these consumers from getting back their tax money in programs that are available to help their families.
