A problem with no solution ?
We are paying the high price for the break up of the family.
But this is but part of it.
Intolerance too has a high price.
As these "meth-heads" are actually stealing from the public, my idea is to incarcerate them for life in slave prisons, and if they manage to OD on drugs again, that would be the end of their life...
Horrible response ? yes !
Prevention is a better answer..We need much better child protective services...
And taxes will increase, the tea baggers be damned !
"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
The funny part is that instead of being pissed that the system creates such people, or being pissed that it is so easily and readily abused by both fraudulent recipients and fraudulent caregivers, defenders of the system ignore the fraud, downplay the abuses...and cost those that TRULY need the services.
If you really want some reading pleasure on fraudulent claims...sure...there are tons out there. $Billions in Medicare/Medicaid lost to fraud, abuse - National Law Enforcement | Examiner.com Medicaid abuse is rampant - South Florida Sun-Sentinel.com Medicaid Abuse From The Mind of a Paramedic | Public Safety Blog http://www.ncleg.net/documentsites/C...esentation.pdf
Draw your own conclusions. And keep 'helping' folks.
Not to derail the thread but I got to ask, should the same be said for unemployment checks? It seems with all of the extension, many have drawn in more than they paid.
