  • And we should cut defense spending to fix the deficit? Or raise taxes? Stop wasting the money and it will be amazing how much easier it is to balance the budget

  • Hey All How about bringing back jobs to America? Instead of sending them to China, Japan or India?

    Maybe we would not need the damn unemployment.

  • The ones to blame are those who are defrauding our government. The doctors and lawyers who enable the patient/client to defraud and charge a percentage of the take. The dishonest of our society have driven this nation into the ground.

  • The payments included about 89,000 checks for $250 each sent to dead or incarcerated people as part of the economic stimulus program.


    Did any of YOU get a stimulus check? I didn't. But, checks were cut and mailed to dead people. Oh, and to people in....tada! PRISON! Yay!!!! Talk about improper payments.
