          Banks? The fuck do they have to do with that?

          Your employer pays you every two weeks, they don’t deal with the bank to take an overpayment back, they just deduce it from your paychecks after realizing they made a mistake.

      If it was a corporation, absolutely. It’s part of the risks they’re taking on as a business. But for a government, which is by definition non profit, you kinda have to mandate return of the funds. Otherwise the government as a whole could collapse.

        The government won’t collapse. They literally have a money printer.

          This only works if you’re America, and even then only somewhat. Everybody else has to fear other places not valuing their currency as highly.
