Why are STIMULUS FUNDS being paid to government contractors who owe the government FEDERAL taxes?
It was reported that 3700 government contractors and non profits, owing federal taxes, were paid $24 billion from the STIMULUS funds.Senator Coburn is calling for a congressional investigation of the administration.
Probably because they made a pathetic explanation. Plus if the government helps the company get back on their feet, then they will get the federal taxes that need to be paid. They are handing out too many stimulus funds instead of focusing on making more money.
Very little of what this government is doing makes sense John, so this too is no surprise. Why is it happening? Because we've elected people who don't give a damn about America, only themselves.
