While it’s estimated that 16 million Americans will go without a stimulus check, even convicted murderers will be eligible.

“Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark, slammed the $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief bill passed by Senate Democrats Saturday, listing off a number of convicted murderers who would receive stimulus checks under the bill.
House Democrats plan to offer their final approval of the bill Tuesday before sending it to President Biden’s desk. The bill includes $1400 stimulus checks for individuals who make less than $75,000.”
Incarcerated people are relieving checks, but other Americans go without. In the past prisoners have received stimulus as well.
Senators Cassidy and Cotton offered a change to the bill that excluded inmates. The amendment failed 49-50. One vote and the worst people in our country will be receiving stimulus checks while others go without.
Convicted murdered while incarcerated in many states cannot consent to sex, cannot own firearms, cannot leave their cell, cannot have conjugal visits with family, and receive no luxury but will get a stimulus check.
What is the purpose of being provided stimulus when tax dollars pay for your existence?
