Democrats Use Stimulus Loot to Pay Off Loyal Constituencies

Posted by Dave Blount at October 8, 2010 1:04 PM

Given the overwhelming tendency of dead people who vote to vote Democrat, conspicuously in the swamps of corruption that spawned the Moonbat Messiah, this shouldn't surprise anyone:

More than 89,000 stimulus payments of $250 each went to people who were either dead or in prison, a government investigator says in a new report.
The payments, which were part of last year's massive economic recovery package, were meant to increase consumer spending to help stimulate the economy.
But about $18 million went to nearly 72,000 people who were dead, according to the report by the Social Security Administration's inspector general. The report estimates that a little more than half of those payments were returned.

The other half must have gone toward spiffy new coffins.

Dead people were ineligible to get the payments. But, the report said, there is no provision in the law to recover payments incorrectly sent to dead people.

Obviously, the people flinging the money around didn't have to work for it.

An additional $4.3 million went to more than 17,000 prison inmates, the report said.

Why not? Felons are comparably loyal to Democrats.

Let's hope the corpses and crooks feel stimulated, so that the hundreds and hundreds of $billions of our money stolen and then wasted in the name of "stimulus" won't be a total loss.
