And didn’t we learn recently that Puerto Rico had the highest claims approved in the Nation?
Yes - Puerto Rico has some administrative law judges who approve at the highest rates in the US. I think the real story here is that the Obama Administration is finding new ways to supply welfare benefits to its voter base. Between precipitous rise in disability, and things like the 49 state AG settlement with the 5 major mortgage servicers (brokered by the DOJ), the administration is finding a way to get money to its base without having to appropriate general revenues (which it can’t get past the house at this time). I wouldn’t be surprised if they look at the DOJ anti-trust action against Apple in the same way. New sources of revenue to re-distribute, without OBTW having to involve the Congress.
