Your tax dollars, not working for you

From the AP, via The Corner:

72,000 Stimulus payments went to dead people

Lots of money wasted sending $250 checks to dead people.  That's only $18,000,000.   A drop in the bucket, right? 

But think of the cost of processing each check, and then processing the returned mail.  That's a lot of money.

Of course it keeps people employed.  There is that.

I read this to my son and he said that 72,000 is probably progress. He figures more dead people than that probably voted in the last election.
