So You Want Government Run Universal Healthcare? Take a Look How Stimulus Rebate Checks Were Handled


The Federal government cannot even send a rebate check correctly and some want Rebate_checksgovernment run universal healthcare and the government to have control over life and death issues. Are you still waiting for your rebate stimulus checks? Imagine if it was your ok to get a necessary and needed surgery. This is just another in a long line of examples why government run anything is a mistake.

For all of you who think that government run, insurance for all, universal healthcare is the answer, think again. The IRS is reporting that many stimulus tax rebate checks have been sent to the wrong people and deposited in the wrong accounts. Checks have also been sent to wrong mailboxes. They can’t seem to send a simple check to the correct account with the proper SS# and you want them to control and govern over your healthcare. Universal healthcare is not the answer.

“We do know of instances of problems; we’ve heard of situations where stimulus checks have gone to the wrong people’s bank accounts,” Kevin McKeon, a spokesman for the tax agency, tells the paper. “We’re getting a lot of calls to the toll-free number.”

When Kristine Cahill asked someone at the IRS about the mixup, she says that person told her it had happened to tons of people.

This is just another example of a government run agency managing to Wtfscrew up something that would seem so simple on face value. The bureaucracy of the Federal Government has become a laughable joke. Oh, and another reason why not to have government run universal healthcare, have you taken a look at the VA hospitals and their conditions?

Through the wonders of modern technology, some of those federal economic stimulus checks are being deposited directly into recipients’ bank accounts.

But some are not – and are instead winding up in the bank accounts of complete strangers.

He said he contacted the IRS and was told by an agent that the deposit was one of 15,000 misrouted checks sent out incorrectly as a result of a computer programming glitch.

McKeon said he could not confirm that figure or that a computer problem was responsible.

Snafus delay some IRS rebates; Some payments were deposited into the wrong bank accounts

Double check stimulus payment

Robert Casey of Middletown admits it was a bad decision to write a check for money he did not have, but he said his biggest mistake was trusting the federal government.

Casey filed his federal income taxes electronically with the Internal Revenue Service in early February and, according to the IRS, an economic stimulus payment for $600 should have been deposited directly into his bank account by May 9. So, that week, Casey wrote a check for rent that he believed would be covered by the economic stimulus payment. That payment never showed up in his bank account. Casey said his rent check will likely bounce and he fears he’ll be evicted.

      I can not even begin to tell you what type of fraud will take place under any type of Universal government run healthcare.

      The reason it occurs is because they are spending other people’s money. Not there own.

      They cant send a friggin check to the proper address and people want the govt in control of health care of their lives.

      Besides the problems mentioned above, I’ve read that a fair number of people who are entitled to a child credit as part of this scheme aren’t getting it … the wrong amounts have been given out, usually to the disadvantage of the taxpayer.

      What’s also crazy about this whole idea is that the people who didn’t pay taxes last year, presumably because their incomes were too low, aren’t even eligible for this huge, unbelievable, overwhelming payment of $300.

      Seems to be the rule of entropy taking place … everything is breaking down. It also bolsters my own theory: the more money you shovel at things, the lower the results. Remember that the next time you hear politicians ranting and raving about the need to, say, spend more on education.

      It has always been a failed govt approach to just throw $’s at problems. The education system in the US is a perfect example.

      Throwing $’s without proper reform and creating standards is the equivalent of pumping gas into a car with a leek in the gas tank.

      There is nothing but waste and fraud where $’s just fly out the window.

      computer glitch my butt!!!! it’s incompetent workers. all it takes is one person NOT doing their job properly to cause this kind of mess to trickle down to thousands of people. that’s our government at work. EXAMPLE: my daughter worked for the year 2007 except for Nov and Dec when her job was disolved and she received a severence package of one months salary, she paid government taxes, filed a 2007 tax return, received a small refund. she received the first form letter telling her she was entitled to a $600 stimulas rebate. due date, may 9th. the rebate never came and when she checked the website, it gave her a reference # and a phone # to call. they told her she was NOT entitled to a stimulas rebate becaue she did not work in 2007. she argued that Yes she did work all but those 2 months. they told her that she would receive a letter in 3 weeks telling her of their decision. on top of that, she received the second form letter telling her that her $600 was going to be deposited into her account soon. she went down to the local IRS office and they filed an appeal. they told her it would take about 3 weeks to hear from that. When YOU owe them money they are waiting on your doorstep ready to place a lien on everything you own, but when THEY owe YOU money you are at their mercy! Our wonderful government at work for it’s citizens.

      Your remarks are rather disgraceful, what is your ‘idea’ of American anyway, for that like being a United States Citizen, because many countries are a part of the Americas. My father was the Defense Attache to the United States Government (YES! That makes him AMERICAN!), and I have lived in 3 different countries, currently in Sweden. I pay 33% tax exactly here, I work my job. I get a much higher pay because I don’t have to pay CRAP like Health insurance that is not government regulated but rather profit-based, and I don’t have to worry about going into debt the rest of my damn life like so many unfortunately do, because of our health care system. Our nation, the United States, is the wealthiest nation in the world by far, but lacks a universal health care system putting our Human Index Rating (How healthy are people are, how long we live) below many other countries, including Sweden, where I don’t believe it should be. Sweden is a socialist democracy, and I have all the rights I get in the United States, except for owning a gun as easy. But I get free university studies, free health care, (sure, not free, at my tax expense), but that’s more free time for me to dance around in joy instead of filing insurance claims and all the like. I believe that it is a problem with education, I don’t intend to put this in an offensive way but that is how it will sound. Socialism is not the end of the world, and there is a large scare about uneducated citizens. I went back for one month, and it daunted me how the %#)” someone did not know that Sweden was a country. (1/2 thought Alfred Nobel was American)

      Surgery is a large difference between a slip of paper, get real ffs.
      And go read a book or two on socialism and communism, from those who INVENTED THE IDEA, I.E. history of Auguste Blanqui, Marx, Frederich Engles…socialism and communism are essentially two faces on the same coin.

      So before you start ranting on about how horrible it is read what it is and see how far the U.S. is from anything of the such.

      Do our governments tell all the stores when to close, all the barber shops how much it should cost, how much food we should give each month to the holding house, how much kids we are allowed to have? Are we drafted to train for war without question? no… THINK!
      SM: Universal Health care is a loser. Nice concept, losing proposition … wait until people get poor treatment and have no one to turn to.

      please keep the Federal Goverment out of the running of our health care. Passing a bill without taking time to read and debate any changes that should be made. I guess know that the bill is not good for most of the citzens of USA. If you check the records of expenses of food, housing and health care from 1960 until now, I think you will find our cost haven’t changed that much. HOW ARE YOU AND CONGRESS GOING TO PAY FOR THIS SINCE YOU WANT NOT PART OF IT.
