if the gov't would have given that $ to me the economy would be stronger. my wife would have spent most of it by now.

My father died suddenly back in 1985.
We had a difficult time stopping the mail he was receiving, including checks.
One company insisted that they could not stop sending him materials unless they got a signed statement from him saying he was dead.
Note that this was a business, not the government.

I pay dead people. oooweeeooo

The federal government has doled out more than $600 million in benefit payments to dead people over the past five years, a watchdog report says.

And, predictably, they are lobbying for more for the next five fiscal years.

And as Jeb Bush reportedly said, the dead still count vote.

Your federal family government at work.

They might have Florida drivers licenses, but they vote in Chicago.

Kinda hard to tell, with Federal employees...

...ducks

Zombies may be eligible for benefits. Just sayin.
