Well, I noticed it more than a week ago and mentioned it here.  But Politico has just got around to noticing it, also.

Dead people could end up eligible for economic stimulus checks after all.

A little-noticed provision in Senate Republicans’ latest coronavirus relief package would partially overturn the Treasury Department’s much-publicized ban on sending stimulus money to the departed.

So long as someone died this year, they would be eligible for the $1,200 payments included in the plan. Not just that, Senate Republicans would also make them retroactively eligible for the previous round of stimulus checks.

What a bummer.  Folks get unlucky and die and then their luck suddenly changes and they get a check for $1200.  Then they remember their bad luck ---------------- how does a dead person spend $1200?
