IRS Sent Over $1 Billion In Stimulus Checks To PRISONERS

Internal data from the IRS reveals that over 1.1 million criminals received COVID-19 stimulus checks, which totaled over $1 billion.

According to The Washington Free Beacon, over 163,000 of those stimulus check recipients are serving life sentences without any chance of parole.

“The American Rescue Plan was reckless in the amount of massive spending with no off-sets,” Rep. Don Bacon told the Free Beacon. “Giving stimulus checks to death row inmates is a glaring example. This bill triggered the worst inflation in 41 years, costing the average family $500 a month. The poor suffer the most.”

This news comes after many Republican lawmakers had warned President joe Biden that his $2 trillion stimulus package lacked the appropriate guardrails.

There were even reports showing how terrorists, including the Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, received a $1,400 stimulus check.

This information only shows how the federal government’s spending spree passed with little to no oversight.

In fact, The Small Business Association had admitted that it had no plans to stop fraudulent loan applications for its $1 trillion Paycheck Protection Program.

The American Rescue Plan did not prohibit prisoners from receiving the payments.

IRS Commissioner Charles Rettig stated that individuals in prison can still apply for the COVID-19 stimulus check if they haven’t yet received them.

According to various experts, there is an $80 billion that was paid out from the program to fake businesses.

The WFB even reported on Republican billionaire donors even receiving $1,400 stimulus checks.

Now, many economists agree that the American Rescue Plan contributed to the country’s intense inflation.
