Two examples of your tax dollars at work

Font Size:

Example #1: Stimulus checks sent to dead people.

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.

It’s “shop till you drop,” not “shop once you drop.”

Example #2: This is not a joke.

The American Postal Workers Union has extended its internal election after thousands of ballots appeared to have gotten lost . . . in the mail.

This is why dogs bite those guys.
