ELDER PATRIOT – Now it’s elderly Americans’ turn to pay for the refugees and illegal aliens that Obama and radical Democrats insist on bringing here.
An audit conducted by the Office of the Inspector General discovered massive payments to illegal aliens. This from an agency that is so insolvent every presidential candidate except Donald Trump declared must cut its benefits to our nation’s seniors.
The IG reported that the Social Security Administration paid $1 billion in benefits to individuals who did not have a Social Security Number (SSN) over the course of the Obama administration.
The reason for this is an administrative decision by an Obama appointee who arbitrarily decided that the Social Security Act somehow “permits the appointment, in certain circumstances, of an undocumented alien, or applicant who resides outside the United States without a Social Security number (SSN) to serve as payee.
Specifically, the Act states we should verify a person’s SSN (or employer identification number) in our investigation of the payee applicant. However, the Act does not state that the applicant must have an SSN to serve as a payee.”
You read that correctly. A SSN should be verified but they decided that if they don’t have one it doesn’t matter. After all, the law didn’t specifically demand that the applicant have one, just that they produce one for verification. This is the way Obama’s sycophants skirted the meaning of the laws that govern virtually every dollar spent by government. It’s a question of what the meaning of is, is.
The Inspector General’s analysis concludes that the costs ran to $1 billion dollars in overpayments. The IG went on to say, “Furthermore, unless 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.” That means the next eight years would see the doubling of fraudulent payments at the expense of our nation’s elderly.
The report also found that the agency paid $853.1 million in benefits since 2004 to individuals whom the agency terminated as representative payees.
The fraud is so widespread that the study sampled 100 beneficiaries and found only 6 properly recorded social security numbers.
As auditors working under orders from President Trump continue looking for ways to cut spending and improve efficiencies they are discovering how Obama ideologues situated throughout the Deep State abused their power to spend money for everyone Obama favored except for whom it was promised.
This is the proof that Obama wasn’t sitting idle over the past eight years, he was busy undermining the very programs his own party advanced for their constituents. And his party walked in lockstep with him every step of the way.
Donald Trump has been President for 35 days. Give Trump another couple of years to clean this mess up and the Democrats will be become totally irrelevant.
America is winning!
