More than 1000 dead people on Welfare seems like a lot

Perhaps, there are many 'dead' collecting madicare/medicade now.

I think those who cheat the poor by exploiting elfare and insurance programs should bye sentenced to hard time shoveling snow in northern Alaska military bases; no parole.

Criminals and cheats always live the good life. Who says crime doesn't pay!
Just look at those spending our tax dollars and living the good life.
And look at our wonderful government first. Spending your money and getting a good pay check on your dime and not paying taxes, medicare or social security.
What a life as a cheat, huh? Then come the welfare mongers. Generations upon generations of lazy scum bas collecting welfare.
Then come illegal aliens collecting welfare.
WOW, no wonder I can't afford the good life. I'm to busy paying for everybody's good life but mine.

Obviously the democrats are far better at voter fraud, Obama got in, twice. And, if you can collect welfare when you're dead, you can vote. The next of kin can just check the box 'we want more' and send it in.

You are just plain stupid. And a liar. The fraud was generated by Karl Rove, and Obama won in spite of it. Rove stole both Bush elections, but Obama's margin was just too huge.

Easy there Billy. I was just pointing out the fact that evidently more dead people voted last time. You know the same dead people that don't get welfare. I wasn't saying you are part of it. Are you?

Easy yourself, Gomer.

What dead people? In what state, precincts? Who was running in these elections?

Most "stories" I hear like this turn out to be lies. They are spread to the gullible by the talk-balbbers on FOX cable or "talk-news."

Have you heard of any convictions?
I must challange your conception of a "fact."
