    Like I wrote, so freakin' what.
    Hah! Typical.

    Man1 - "It's only 3% of the population collecting disability benefits! What's the big deal!?"

    Man2 - "OK, then let's cut the budget by 3%. It's only a small amount."

    Man1 - "THAT'S OUTRAGEOUS!!"
    Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and he stops voting for the Free Fish party.

    At least with DOD, our soldiers have the best equipment, employment stays healthy building the materials needed but with fraudulent disability we get nothing except the unwanted fart in the elevator from some fat ass milking the system.

    Seriously, Rocketman? You wanna get mad and go after the change under the couch cushions, rather than the billion upon billions wasted by your DoD?

    Watchdog Groups Identify Nearly $700 Billion in Wasteful Spending on National Security
    WASHINGTON - May 8 - The federal government could reduce the deficit by $688 billion over the next 10 years by cutting unneeded weapons—such as variants of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter and the Navy’s Littoral Combat Ship—reining in out-of-control service contracts and slowing its investments in excess nuclear weapons, according to a report released today by the Project On Government Oversight (POGO) and Taxpayers for Common Sense.

    As the use of plugs indicates, pay errors are only a small part of the sums that annually disappear into the vast bureaucracy that manages more than half of all annual government outlays approved by Congress. The Defense Department’s 2012 budget totaled $565.8 billion, more than the annual defense budgets of the 10 next largest military spenders combined, including Russia and China. How much of that money is spent as intended is impossible to determine.

    In its investigation, Reuters has found that the Pentagon is largely incapable of keeping track of its vast stores of weapons, ammunition and other supplies; thus it continues to spend money on new supplies it doesn’t need and on storing others long out of date. It has amassed a backlog of more than half a trillion dollars in unaudited contracts with outside vendors; how much of that money paid for actual goods and services delivered isn’t known. And it repeatedly falls prey to fraud and theft that can go undiscovered for years, often eventually detected by external law enforcement agencies.

    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    I figured you'd deflect. Sad.

    You think everyone collecting disability should be cut off?

    I know a lot of states are hiring more and more PI's to catch disability violaters. not only are they losing their benefits some are getting charge backs or arrested if it was bad enough. states are saving millions of dollars.

    Our psychiatrists regularly declassified frequent flyers from disabled to malingerers.

    The tragedy is that there are in fact MANY people truly disabled and there is a limited number of resources and beds and all too often those resources are unavailable because there is someone there that has learned how to work the system and would rather be provided for than work for themselves.

    10 million people taking free checks from Uncle Sam is a significant portion, regardless of what % of the population it is. Also the disability rolls have been increasing as a % of the population for some time now, suggesting that more then just population growth is at play here.

    No, just those who are not disabled.
