    Do you have anything to offer other than putting worths into the mouths of others? (i.e.. anything other than FAIL?)

    Who said anything about spending a billion? Oh, you did.

    Man, you folks on the left really don't give a crap about fraud and abuse in the system, unless it's a 'system' you don't like or agree with eh?

    Some of us stand on principle, that fraud and waste is bad, no matter what system it is in.

    I have never understood why people use the term 'our morals' unless they belong to a church like the Church of Political Correctness

    Do you have anything to offer other than putting words into the mouths of others.....indeed.

    Before that you tossed out what seemed to be definitive numbers...and then backtrack with "but they don't know how much fraud exists"...

    Is this it....contradictions and conflicting comments with hypocrisy?

    If you don't have a real point, move on.
    Maybe you could tell me what a gypsum plant produces instead of avoiding it in the other thread.

    I am not surprised you do not know the difference between suggesting someone said something other than what they actually said, and an observation. You are failing all over the place.

    Your "observation" was putting words into the mouths of liberals, who you claimed "don't give a crap about fraud". Yet most if not all have acknowledged it exists, hence, we do "give a crap", the problem most of us point out to you is the scale of it. When the scale is as small as the numbers YOU provided, we know that the cost of reducing the fraud further brings limited returns. The fraud has been reduced dramatically with the advent of debit cards, SNAP programs at the state level seem to be doing a fairly admiral job in combating it. You just seem to have trouble with the PROPORTION as opposed to the GROSS.

    You still can't discuss the SCALE and again, you don't seem to still know what a gypsum plant does in other places here at the forum.

    Who is "failing"?

    Several in a row made comments about how the % was so small, it didn't matter. My observation was that they obviously don't care. That is not putting words in their mouths. You are no good at this. And the irony meter is heading off the charts considering your moniker.

    See again the problem is that you stop reading the response. If we did not care then we would not discuss how it is being dealt with.

    Second....the irony of my moniker, gimmesometruth? What truth am I avoiding? I believe it has been established who is avoiding what.
