A key senator has asked the Social Security Administration to investigate how people who live their lives role-playing as adult babies are able to get taxpayer-funded disability payments after one of them was featured on a recent reality TV episode wearing diapers, feeding from a bottle and using an adult-sized crib he built.
Sen. Tom Coburn, Oklahoma Republican and the Senates top waste-watcher, asked the agencys inspector general to look into 30-year-old Stanley Thornton Jr. and his roommate, Sandra Dias, who acts as his mother, saying its not clear why they are collecting Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits instead of working.
Given that Mr. Thornton is able to determine what is appropriate attire and actions in public, drive himself to complete errands, design and custom-make baby furniture to support a 350-pound adult and run an Internet support group, it is possible that he has been improperly collecting disability benefits for a period of time, Mr. Coburn wrote in a letter Monday to Inspector General Patrick P. O'Carroll Jr.
The request comes at a time when members of Congress are struggling to cut budgets and weed out waste to try to bring down the staggering deficit, and comes just days after Social Securitys trustees released a grim assessment of the programs long-term financial healt

You wanna test how damn serious I am about leaving this world, screw with my check that pays for this apartment and food. Try it. See how serious I am. I dont care, the California man said. I have no problem killing myself. Take away the last thing keeping me here, and see what happens. Next time you see me on the news, it will be me in a body bag.
The system invites fraud
The parasites are threatening to revolt.....
I wonder what his DU screen name is.
“Coburn sees possible fraud”
Paging Capt. Obvious!
Ain’t no bodybag big enough I think. lol
Okay this guy is really serious about ending his life, so we should just back off.......on second thought what is his address I’ll mail him some ammo so he won’t have to leave the house.
Vote for Scotty McCreery on American Idol tonight.
Make the Libs heads explode!
(The 17 year old singing sensation made the unforgivable mistake of kissing the cross he wears around his neck and singing a song mentioning Jesus. Libs are flaming him all over the net)
So the only thing keeping him alive is his free ride?
Please!!! Test him and everyone else who is cheating us lawful tax payers. The government should provide free hemlock.
I stopped watching AI when they decided to send 15 year old contestants to Sin City with pedo Steven Tyler.
I consider myself to be a fairly compassionate man, able and ready to assist my fellow man if need be, with material things if necessary, with financial assistance if need be, with a prayer, with words of encouragement...but this just absolutely pisses me off.
Stinking liberals piss and moan about how we want to get rid of this type of welfare and here we have a perfect example of why the system is totally screwed up.
This POS does not want help, except the free ride he's getting at our expense.
He has no desire to improve his lot in life, to work his way back to a decent citizenship.
He simply wants to suck on the teat of the tax payer until such time as he dies.
I say good bye.
Take him off the "check", provide him with gainful employment, based on pay for performance, and if he kills himself, well, I will offer up a prayer for his soul, but I'll not be held hostage in my conscience if he does kill himself.
And the downside is?
Ill mail him some ammo so he wont have to leave the house.
How about a gun with a nipple on the muzzle?
I don’t think there are very many people dressing up as adult babies to collect SSI checks.
But there are plenty of other malingers doing what they can to keep the money coming in.
finally, finally, SSI disability fraud is beginning to get some attention. some of these people are nothing but “Line-Breakers” and cast a shadow on people who are truly disabled.
I frequently eat at a local restaurant where the owner is a quadriplegic and he runs the cash register by using a pencil in his mouth to type the numbers ... he has a wife and family he supports ... he prefers to work and not take government money. Then the lady down the street from me has a “mood disorder, collects ssdi and has never, ever worked more than a year in her life and has collected ssdi for years now, and she parties and has lots of “activities.”
This is why there will be no $$$ left in social security.
MY neighbors 28 year old son was in end stage heart failure and was denied SSDI and was appealing but he died.
Why, SSI is the “crazy check”. Everyone knows that!
Didn’t find it when I searched.
But then, this is so atypical it should be posted OVER AND OVER, everywhere.
