Society Security is probably the most criticized and abused government programs in American history.
Set up by President Roosevelt over 80 years ago, the program designed to help Americans when they reach retirement, has been a political vehicle for corrupt and greedy Congress’s for generations.
Most Americans will have difficulty drawing benefits when they retire, and this after paying into the system all of their lives. On the other hand, illegal immigrants and refugees who have not contributed are able to take from SS on upon entering the country.
Conservative Presidents and Congresses have often striven to reform the system, and to minimize the burden it will have on future generations, but have routinely been frustrated by liberal Democrat lawmakers.
Even more so today, the Social Security system is in dire need of reform. President Trump ran on a platform to preserve the benefits of both Social Security and Medicaid, but to also change the broken parts of the program.
With all that in mind, recent news is shocking Americans and unveiling a scandal that is unbelievable in scope and nature. The truth is…this scandal only confirmed to a greater degree tjhe problems Social Security faces and the challenge Trump faces. in fixing it. See the story below:
From Right Wing News:
An audit found that the Social Security Administration paid out over $1 billion in benefits to people that don’t have social security numbers — or, people that should not be able to get benefits at all. The government’s documentation of “representative payees,” or people who receive benefits on behalf of someone else incapable of managing their affairs, was evidently massively flawed.
Over the last 10 years, the SSA has paid out $1 billion to 22,426 representative payees who did not have a social security number and who the SSA did not follow its policy to get a paper application from. “[U]nless it takes corrective action, we estimate SSA will pay about $182.5 million in benefits, annually, to representative payees who do not have an SSN or paper application supporting their selection,” the inspector general said.
As if that wasn’t enough, the inspector general found that the SSA paid $853.1 million since 2004 to representative payees that had been terminated by the agency. The agency did not update the system once someone had been terminated and did not keep up with paper applications.
The unbelievable amount of funding paying out to unwarranted beneficiaries is just proof that under the Obama Administration, there was almost no oversight to make sure that taxpayer dollars were appropriated correctly.
It’s a tragedy that all of the hard-working Americans that toiled for years to support their families and country, while paying into the Social Security program, are now denied basic benefits because of these abuses. All the while many illegal aliens and non-citizens are pocketing billion of dollars worth of support.
This abuse must end with Trump.
