Here in America, millions of hardworking people rely on social security benefits to get them through their elderly years. Others use their benefits to aid them through health troubles when they cannot work due to medical conditions. While there are obvious problems with the way the social security system works, the fact of the matter is that social security is going to be around for a while. In the meantime, there are things that need to be worked out before the whole reform process can take place.
A recent report by the Social Security Administration showed that they had wrongly paid individuals over one billion dollars in social security or disability money. These individuals either wrongly reported disabilities or the SSA gave them too much money. While they claim that the money is just a small fraction of the money they hand out, the fact of the matter is that one billion dollars is a lot of money, and errors like this just keep our nation debt spiraling out of control.
They don’t care though. They are concerned more with getting their money to give their employees big wages, and they don’t care about what it will cost taxpayers now or in the future. Some conservatives are demanding that this be fixed, but it looks like it is an uphill battle as the SSA is downplaying the situation. This makes sense though since big time bureaucracy was put it place to silence the voice of the people. It’s just one problem with what’s wrong with the big government way America is being run, and I truly hope that we can fix this problem in the near future.
May God Bless America,
