Stimulus money going to cons

According to the Boston Herald,
One day after the Herald reported some surprised Bay State inmates - including murderers and rapists - were cashing in $250 stimulus checks, federal officials revealed the same behind-bars bonus was mailed to nearly 4,000 cons nationwide.
The government can't make a profit on the post office or Amtrak. They run Social Security, Medicaid, and Medicare toward bankruptcy. They have a terrible record in V.A. hospital care. They are responsible for the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac catastrophe. They messed up payments to dealers on the cash for clunkers program. They mis-spend stimulus money on pornography, sex research, and now, we discover, on criminals!

And to think some people actually want our government running our health care system! I'm sorry, but I can't help wondering if those who think the government can get health care right might not need a little mental health care.
