    Yes... we should all recognize the fact that a large part of this is due to fraud, especially people who continue to collect after finding work. It is they who should face stiff penalties, for effectively stealing from their fellow citizens. Garnish their wages and get the fraudulently distributed money back!

    There is an expectation that one needs to be honest with the government. And it seems like the government is catching people when they are not.

    Mr. Everson pointed out that in Indiana, benefit recipients are required to list three work searches. If a recipient fills out only two of the three searches correctly, there are cases when the recipient can still receive benefits. But that counts as an error.
    so the error was that people sometimes applied for two jobs instead of three jobs in a week and still got the payment? wow, that's outright fraud. what a wasteful computer glitch that enabled those freeloaders to receive the money that they paid in. obviously, the proper solution is to cut them off without a dime. just think of all of the bank bailouts we could have paid for with that money.

    This is the writing of a self-proclaimed Moderate. It would be interesting to see your views if you took a less centric position.
