That money should be going to people that have been put out of work and are in need!
"FREEDOM" and "LAWS" are difficult for some to conceptualize. I think the whole Bill is 50% pork - and it puts us further into future Bankruptcy. But I'm not going to tell anyone what to do with their "GIFT". If you like, donate it . . . .

You don’t have to cash it. Or are just mad others are getting it? Just cause you and I don’t need it don’t mean every retiree in the same boat.

If you think it's such a dumb idea, return the check!

As a lover of irony, I will use money given to me by the federal government to pay for certain products deemed illegal by said federal government but allowed under Florida law.

I am not 100% sure which side of the fence you are coming down on. It appears you are suggesting people receiving SSI do not need the check because their income situation has not changed. This concept could be expanded further. There are millions of folks that have not lost their jobs and they will be getting the checks as well. Because they have not lost their jobs should they be denied the payment as well?

If you don't need it, think you don't deserve it....now you can just go out and spend that much more than you usually would in the local small businesses in TV.
