While researching one story, I found another.  It seems that welfare fraud is not only rampant, but also encouraged,  Here is some video coverage…

Waiting for claims that it doesn’t happen, or that these are “isolated incidents.”

5, 4, 3, 2, 1….

Why is it encouraged?  Well, if your goal is to make more and more people dependent in the system, and therefore democratic voters, you can’t let a little thing like eligibility and law interfere, can you?

    The GAO has a report out that claims around 1500 out of 7000 federal employees they’ve analyzed who were also receiving SSI or disability payments while on the job may have been receiving either improper or fraudulent payments from SSA. That’s an eye-opening rate of around 21%. Note that they’re a bit reluctant to call improper payments fraud if the individual showed some attempt to inform the agency that they were no longer eligible, but they were still cashing the improper payments. That’s still fraud in my definition of the word. The wholescale looting of the taxpayer is out of control.
