I would like to see fraud cut even if it cost the Democrats votes and luxurious pensions and benefits to politicians should be cut. Not eliminated but I'm sure they'd get along fine on SS and a modest pension. Medicare could cover all their medical needs, wouldn't it?
Some years ago a young woman, 22-years, was strung out on drugs and facing losing her infant daughter. I'd known her since she was 12 and convinced her to take a job in a restaurant. She called me a week later and said she'd quit because her caseworker from welfare had pointed out that she didn't just lose the ADC check. She'd be facing rapid eviction from the trailer she lived in that belonged to welfare, her Medicaid card would be invalid immediately, and the dental work she'd been needing wouldn't be paid for. The government will do whatever they can to keep people on welfare on welfare.

We all know that extreme position . Anybody can write about such positions to frighten people that they are inevitable . i wonder how benefits used in this way total when expressed as a percentage of your full offence and defence budget ? Somewhere around 0.01% perhaps ?
