Report: ‘Terrorists and Perverts’ Received $924M
ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY…
1929: St Valentine’s Day Massacre in Chicago, 7 gangsters killed, allegedly on Al Capone’s orders
Prison inmates received more than $900 million in taxpayer dollars under President Joe Biden’s American Rescue Plan last year.
Internal Revenue Service records obtained by the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) show that 645,000 inmates received stimulus checks.
“In one of the most inexplicable votes in Senate history, Senate Democrats sent terrorists and perverts $1,400 checks paid for by U.S. tax dollars. It is a vote that should tick off every American,” NRSC Chairman Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) said.
“The Boston Marathon bomber and Larry Nassar are in prison for their evil deeds killing Americans and molesting children. They do not deserve our money.”
The checks went out despite efforts by Sens. Tom Cotton (R-AK) and Bill Cassidy (R-LA) to prevent stimulus funds from going to prisoners. In March 2021, Senate Democrats struck down the amendment in a 50-49 party-line vote.
“Senate Democrats’ shameful vote will live in infamy and will be a major reason why Republicans will take back the Senate and end the madness,” Scott said.
Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) argued that the children of incarcerated individuals would suffer if their parents were denied stimulus funds.
“Children should not be forced to go hungry because a parent is incarcerated. Relief payments would allow families to replace lost income and pay rent and put food on the table,” Durbin said in March.
“I would urge my colleagues to understand what we are facing with our criminal justice system today. We need to bring more justice to it and caring for the families of those who are incarcerated.”
The government also provided stimulus payments to prisoners in 2020 under the Trump administration.
The IRS attempted to block incarcerated individuals from receiving stimulus checks in 2020, but a federal judge ruled that the law does not contain a provision barring such individuals from receiving stimulus funding.
Nearly $1 billion in stimulus funds sent to prisoners in 2021, ‘terrorists and perverts’ got $1,400 checks

Biden and the ignorant democrats will do anything to get votes even if against the law. Just how ridiculous is this stupid thing done here. This president if you want to call him that is the STUPIDEST person on this planet and so are the democRATS in DC..
Why would this surprise anyone? The party of appeasement, which prescribes and circumscribes mask and innoculation mandates, as a provision for the common defense in compensation for the “gain of function” malfeasance of one of their own,
has been devoid of any logical perspective on cause and effect, for many years. They are stymied by the alternatives of choice which are represented by democrat discretion respecting “equal rights” which are NOT the same rights or the exercise of the same rights as are practiced by the vast majority. Whatever the intentions of choice, it is the consequences of choices which must, always, be the logical consideration if prevention of those consequences, for the provision for the common defense, is to objective. The security of society should be most important.
The Dems see every chance to pass out money as a way to buy votes. They only care about winning elections and have no moral compass about what is correct or what is wrong. Only securing votes count on their scorecard. They have been hiding the truth for years and know that uninformed voters are their best source of support
PROBLEM: “The IRS attempted to block incarcerated individuals from receiving stimulus checks in 2020, but a federal judge ruled that the law does not contain a provision barring such individuals from receiving stimulus funding.”
SOLUTION: Use good common sense, then change the law!!!
I see that you buried this fact in one line after trashing the current administration: Way to go to slant the information! How about saying BOTH the Trump and Biden Administrations handed out this stimulus money? That would be more “balanced and fair”.
What insanity, from this corrupt administration and the dumbocraps, They don’t give it to American citizens that need it the most.
All this Godless Evil on display, is to showcase us what Hell is, is going to, sadly be like, for most! [Only much much worse] ! This short life is only a test! To see where you spend your Eternity! Good luck suckers!!!
Hey these are the people YOU VOTED FOR!!!!….You made your bed now sleep in it…No Sympathy here……..
This article claims that 645,000 inmates received checks, and our prison system information states that is just under half of the total prison population. That information also states that just under half of the inmates are there for non-violent crimes. Do these numbers imply that only non-violent criminals got the checks, or that only the violent ones did, or a mix of both? This article mentions violent offenders by name, and declares they should not receive checks, but does not state that they actually did. Maybe only non-violent offenders with families requiring support got checks.
Actually in a previous article it was reported that the Boston Bomber guy Dzhokhar Anzorovich Tsarnaev did receive a check and that these checks are being confiscated and used to pay legal fees they owe. So in other words, the lawyers are getting the money!!! LOL Nothing new under the sun!!!
Someone who is in prison does not get SSI or SSDI, so why should they get a stimulus.
None i repeat none should get a stimulus check! It makes no difference the circumstances, they are criminals, rewarding them is wrong.
THIS IS A ABONIMATION,TAX PAYERS CHILDREN ARE GOING HUNGRY, HARD WORKING AMERICANS DO WITHOUT. SO PLEASE TELL ME WHERE THERE IS JUCTICE???DICK DURBIN YOU ARE ANOTHER RHINO FOOL, YOU SHOULD BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THIS MISDIRECTED FOLLEY. TERM LIMITS ASAP, YOU SET IN CONGRESS WAY TO LONG, DID YOU EVER ACCOMPLISH ANYTHING?? YOU FIT RIGHT IN WITH THE BRANDON REGIME. YOU ARE JUST ANOTHER MEGALOMANIAC THAT LOVES TO SPEND OUR TAX DOLLARS. WE COME TO REALIZE IT IS NOT JUST BIDEN-HARRIS WHO ARE UNFIT AND CORRUPT, IT IS THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY THAT IS UNFIT TO SERVE US.NEVER FORGET WHO YOU WORK FOR, WITHOUT FOOLS THAT RE-ELECT YOU TIME AFTER TIME, YOU WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO DESTROY THIS NATION WITH YOUR UTTER BIGOTRY.THE BIDEN REGIME IS NOTHING BUT LAUGHABLE, NOT ONE DECENT PERSON IN IT. JUST BOOT LICKERS , THE SAME AS OBAMA HAD.NOT ONE HAS BACKBONE,DECENCY,EVERY ONE IS A EMBARRASSMENT TO THIS COUNTRY.
It should obvious even to those that suffer from blindness the democrat party under presidents Obama and Biden use the taxpayer’s
money to fund political issues, rather than concentrating on the challenges America faces. Their socialist focus on political power sucks the breath out of the trillions of dollars federal budgets. Our nation’ security, infrastructure, basic human rights, freedoms and sovereignty are disregarded so the democrats are simply on a never ending plot to maintain their tyrannical rule. The constitution has become exactly what it was never meant to be, an ever evolving document.
Welcome to Biden’s America.
Biden is a demented old buzzard. He should be in a rest home for the aged and have daily mental evaluations.
Stacy Abrams was highly instrumental in this mess. And I believe she was the one who started the program or suggested it first
All I can say is: Be not deceived. God is not mocked. Whatever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
The people (Biden and his ilk, DemoRats, Leftists, Liberals) that had a hand in this scam WILL be punished. One doesn’t take their children’s dinner and give it to the dogs, but that’s what the shysters in our Government are doing.
