Post-Death Federal Retirement Payments Could Total $600 Million

The Federal government pays millions of dollars per year to dead people, including deceased retired workers.

The United Warfare/Welfare States Of America

America is a warfare/welfare state. In fiscal year 2010, the Federal government spent $3.5 trillion. Warfare and welfare made up the vast bulk of the spending. In fact, 75 percent of the total United States budget goes to making war or paying people to do nothing.

Obama Sidesteps Congress In Education Decision

President Barack Obama announced Friday that States could apply for waivers on the provision of No Child Left Behind (NCLB) that requires school proficiency in math and reading by 2014. According to Obama’s plan, for the States to receive a waiver, they must adopt education policy changes the Administration deems necessary.

Federal Government Pays Dead Workers

The Administration of Barack Obama has ordered the creation of a government-wide “do not pay” database in light of reports that the Federal government makes more than $120 million in payments each year to people who are dead.

Stopgap Spending Bill Passed

A 219-203 vote, just after midnight Friday, pushed a new spending bill through the U.S. House of Representatives that allows the Federal government to operate past Sept. 30. The bill has remained controversial over the past several weeks as embattled House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) took flak from both sides of the aisle while attempting to get it passed.

Rick Perry’s Despicable Lie

Commentators called it one of the most poignant moments in the Sept. 22 GOP debate, second only to Herman Cain’s story of his battle with cancer. It was when Texas Governor Rick Perry, hero to much of the apparently deluded Tea Party movement, told how he was lobbied to mandate young girls be forced to take the Gardasil vaccine not by Merck, but by a woman dying of cervical cancer.
