Stimulating nonexistent congressional districts

There are 32 congressional districts in the great state of Texas and not a single on goes by the name of the 91st District of Texas, which received federal stimulus money that could just as easily be given to me, because I, in fact, do exist.

What the ... ? reports $6.4 billion in stimulus money has been sent to congressional districts that don't exist.

Texas Watch Dog reports $14.7 million went to phantom congressional districts in Texas.

Government says it's just a paperwork problem, a human error problem, some people don't know what congressional districts they live in when they're filling out forms and such.

Can't wait til the government runs the healthcare system.
