We have seen articles recently from the abuses in Social Security with numerous fly by night offices springing up and billing recipients for unneeded services...costs running in the BILLIONS. Every instance takes away from people truly in NEED. But nah...you keep doing your head in the tight stinky place routine to defend your precious systems while their INAPPROPRIATE use continues. Geeeezus...You are more Pete than the Pete.
    Yes, obviously there is room for improvement. Most of this is down to the states' procedures and not the feds. So what do you think we should do? Stop giving people food assistance?

    Precisely what I said in this instance and every time there HAS been abuse raised as a topic on this site...review the system, adjust and correct as needed, punish the abusers, and ensure the people actually in need have access to the services they need.

    Edit: For what it is worth, I work in this field and have at least as much hands on experience if not more so than anyone here. I see the benefits, see the abuses. I am all for social spending...EFFECTIVE and needed social spending at the private, local and where needed state levels. I would see MORE money in the system to address actual need and that can be accomplished by eliminating both the government bureaucracy and contract waste. If people knew how much money was wasted or dedicated to the problem and instead goes to others it would make their heads pop.

    That may very well be the most intelligent thing I have ever seen you post with the added benefit of at least being brief.
