    My link is from October of 2013. Your's is from 2012. Since then, there have some huge fraudulent discoveries. Did you read my link about the doctors and lawyers that are involved?

    That's wonderful. Care to explain how this contradicts anything? All I see what you have is Coburn and a lack of corroboration from SSA.

    It hasn't gone to trial. I can't believe some of you people are so gullible enough to believe your own words. Ridiculous. Plenty of people are playing the system.

    WASHINGTON – A judge, an attorney and a number of doctors pocketed more than $4.5 million by fraudulently ensuring that disability claimants would receive Social Security benefits, the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs reported Monday.

    The committee released a report detailing the findings of a two-year investigation into the Huntington, W.Va., Social Security Office of Disability Adjunction and Review.

    The investigation found that Eric Conn of the Kentucky-based Conn Law Firm worked in cahoots with an administrative law judge, who had responsibility for ruling on disability claims. The firm received more than $4.5 million from the Social Security Administration in attorney fees for obtaining disability benefits for thousands of claimants whose claims were improperly granted. Conn also compensated doctors up to $650 per case for signing off on medical opinions supporting claimants' disability applications.

    The system needs to be totally overhauled. Now granted, in some of the cases noted, it could have been a healthy individual driving the car of a disabled person, but they're not supposed to be able to use the handicapped spaces unless they are actually handicapped themselves or driving a handicapped individual. There is so much abuse going on out there, I don't think you should get one of the placards unless you are significantly physically disabled that you cannot walk the extra couple of feet and that's just not the case for most of these individuals.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Is there anything like that for you in your area, or are you basically stuck fending for yourself?
    There's a low-income mental health and social work clinic in my area that I am making use of. They do much of the same thing, though their "job placement assistance" is questionable at best.

    Are you seriously suggesting that from March 2012 to October 2013 we have information about the same time frame which skyrocketed from 1% to 20%, without internal changes to the infamously strict criteria of SSA.
