A text shared by Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) highlights a major issue with the stimulus checks currently being sent out by the federal government.

According to Massie’s text exchange, a friend received a $1,200 stimulus check for their father – only thing is their father’s been dead for two years.

“Ok this is insane, but just the tip of the iceberg,” Rep. Massie prefaced his shared image on Twitter. “This is a direct text to me from a friend. I called to confirm this actually just happened.”

In the text conversation, Massie’s friend tells him, “Dad got his stimulus check of $1200. He died in … 2018. Does he have to spend it online?” the friend jokingly inquired, adding a facepalm emoji.

The puzzling situation highlights a wider issue that has the potential to snowball into a major financial headache for taxpayers and the federal government.

Rep. Massie, one of the only GOP congressmen who criticized the $6 trillion bailout package, has also recently been warning of a coming food shortage in America due to stresses on the farm and food industry caused by restaurants shutting their doors.
