“Recently, I passed a bill in the Senate to stop sending stimulus checks to dead people, immediately,” Paul tweeted on Monday.
The Kentucky senator revealed the bill has been “watered down” so stimulus checks will only cease being sent to dead people after three years.
“This is exactly why 90 [percent] of people (including me) disapprove of Congress,” he wrote.
Recently, I passed a bill in the Senate to stop sending stimulus checks to dead people, immediately.
Now I’m told bill is being watered down to stop paying dead people, but only in THREE years.
This is exactly why 90 % of people (including me) disapprove of Congress.

When Covid-19 stimulus checks were rushed out to citizens at the beginning of the pandemic, about $1.4 billion worth of checks were reportedly sent to over one million deceased people.
Paul has said the mistake is reason enough to question the accuracy of mail-in voting.
Your government sent 1.1 million dead people stimulus checks. Wonder how many of these folks also voted absentee?

Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Kentucky) has also recently highlighted stimulus checks not only being sent to dead people, but also outside the country to non-citizens.
Now we are sending stimulus checks to Norwegian citizens living in Norway!
At least the dead people who received stimulus checks were Americans.
Twitter trolls can hate and call this fake, but I confirmed this 100%.

3 months ago, I broke the news that $1200 U.S. stimulus checks were going to foreigners overseas. A lot of liberals didn’t believe our government could be this incompetent and wasteful. Maybe they’ll believe it now that NPR has finally reported on it!https://t.co/ZQ5DxCXpbD https://t.co/8proN2Wu4e
