There is a reason so many Americans support Trump’s plan to drain the swamp.
And this report is one of them!
Big government takes our money and runs away with it. There is very little accountability for these government agencies.
They are given billions. But who is watching them? Where is the money going?
It’s hard to grasp just how bad the problem is, but sometimes we get a glimpse. A report came out in 2017 from the Office of the Inspector General, which was largely ignored by the mainstream media.
But the results are honestly pretty shocking. Check it out…
From the Office of the Inspector General:
We estimate that 22,426 beneficiaries had an individual representative payee who did not have an SSN, and SSA had not followed its policy to retain the paper application…
From April 2006 to September 2016, SSA paid these representative payees about $1 billion.
Um… wow. Yes, you read that right.
From 2006-2016, the SSA paid out about $1 BILLION to people without a SSN or were not following proper policy.
How is this even possible? I know numerous accounts of people with SSNs that are denied. Yet so many people were getting checks from the government—without even being in their records?
