More stimulus fraud, will the Gov't really do anything about it? Probably not.Submitted by northstar on Fri, 05/14/2010 - 18:57
WE WANT OUR MONEY BACK FROM THESE CROOKS!!!
Weeks after rampant fraud was exposed in a welfare program to make low-income houses energy efficient in Wisconsin, a similar example of widespread corruption has surfaced in Texas.
Both states’ “weatherization” projects were funded with tax dollars allocated nationwide through a $5 billion stimulus infusion. The goal is to make the homes of poor folks more efficient by offering them free insulation, sealing and even new central heating and cooling systems compliments of Uncle Sam. Some people even get new refrigerators, water heaters and furnaces.
Instead, tens of millions of dollars have gone to companies under criminal investigation for defrauding the government and tens of millions more have funded wasteful projects including multi million-dollar turtle crossings, abandoned train stations and Social Security stimulus checks for 10,000 dead people.
