Less money for dead people: Obama signs waste law - Yahoo! News

Less money for dead people: Obama signs waste law - Yahoo! News Rejoice! Obama has signed a law slashing payments to dead people, fugitives and those in jail who shouldn't be getting benefits by 50 billion dollars. So that's good right? Well it's good start but the catch is that there were $110 billion in such payments last year alone representing the highest amount of payments ever. One has to wonder why the law doesn't stop the payments altogether while they sort out who is supposed to have what. After all they are stopping Medicare reimbursement for physicians suspected of Medicare fraud so why not stop payments in this instance? I'm just saying...

Otherwise it's a good plan. I think we can all agree dead people shouldn't be getting any money. Now how about not allowing dead people to vote? I'm just saying...
