FEATURED Lifers Received $1.3 Billion In Covid-19 Stimulus Cheques

Internal Revenue Service (IRS) data released to Rep. Don Bacon (R-NE) shows President Joe Biden's American Rescue Plan distributed $1.3 billion in COVID-19 stimulus cheques to more than 1.1 million prison inmates.

163,000 individuals are serving life without parole. "The American Rescue Plan was reckless in mount of massive spending with no off-sets,” said the Nebraska Republican.

“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.”

The American Rescue plan distributed payments to persons earning $75,000 or less or married couples earning up to $150,000.

Newsmax reported that Senate Democrats voted 50-49 against an amendment to halt cash payments to inmates.

The Washington Free Beacon obtained a letter in which IRS Commissioner Charles Rettig said his office lacks data on how many people with life sentences who received stimulus money may also face the death penalty.
