Welfare that lasts forever! Its common that welfare bums switch to SSI because it never ends. I remember a story about a mother in Arkansas about a decade ago who signed up fue to depression, and her 5 kids slid in with ADD. This woman ended up collecting $62,000/yr in a city where the average worker earned $14K/yr.
I have heard NO so called Conservative talk about reforming this lame brained program. Of course this comes from the same crop of so called conservatives watch several presidents bomb foreign nations without any regard to the constitutional vaildity of their act.
Notice how damn quiet the new tea party members of congress have been lately?
I pray for this Country daily, the level of situational blindness shown by the SO CALLED CONSERVATIVES is shocking. I understood the libtards were insane, but the fox is guarding the hen house...

THE ADD-SSI SCAM IS COMMON AMONG ILLEGALS
Illegals SSI scam under scrutiny

A three-part Boston Globe series The Other Welfare, showed how the SSI program, created in 1972 for children with severe physical disabilities, now serves largely those diagnosed with behavioral, learning, and mental disorders. Of the 1.2 million low-income children who receive SSI benefits, 53 percent, or 640,000, qualify because of mental disabilities, up from 8 percent in 1990.
By significant margins, delayed speech and ADD hyperactivity disorder were top reasons children received benefits, including Medicaid coverage and $700 a month cash.
The Govt Accountability Office will investigate SSI payments for kids behavioral and mental issues...... and whether low-income (illegal) families are putting their youngsters on psychiatric drugs to fake ADD and other conditions as the way to improve their chances of qualifying. Investigators are to examine whether the SS Administration can effectively screen new recipients and adequately determine when mental conditions have improved to the point that they are no longer eligible for benefits.
Illegals NEVER paid a buck into SS........but are sucking up our tax dollars. Two illegal SS scams: (1) They claim asylum from Mexicos phony drug wars and collect $1200 per month forever. (2) Illegals get their kids to fake ADD.
RIDING THE US GRAVY TRAIN An illegal alien w/ wife and five children violates our borders. He gets a job mowing lawns for $5.00 or 6.00/hour. At that low wage, with six dependents, he pays no income tax, so each year, he files an Income Tax Return to get "EITC---earned income credit" of up to $3,200 scot-free. He qualifies for Section 8 housing and subsidized rent. He qualifies for food stamps and no deductible, no co-pay free health care. His children get free school breakfasts and lunches. The kids qualify for monthly SSI checks, faking ADD; the illegal and his wife get SSI if they fake being aged, blind or disabled; SSI qualifies them for Medicare. Plus illegals don't worry about pricey items like car insurance, life insurance, or homeowners insurance, and qualifies for relief from high energy bills.
ALL OF THAT IS COLLECTED WITH JUST ONE IDENTITY Evidence shows illegals establish several identities with phony SS nos and fake documents (which these "impoverished immigrants" buy from document brokers for several thousand dollars).
