36,000 spread out over a 3 year period is 1,000 per moth
when you have new claims of 300,000 in a monthe the diffrence is far less than 1%.
So your theory desn't hold water....
the $1.3 billion is a very small contribution to the deficit ....

36,000 out of the 56,000,000 who collect
something from Social Security is
beyond miniscule.

BFD!!

If it were the same proportion of income tax
scammers (like Romney) who were caught and
forced to pony up, we'd be ahead by many, many
billions of dollars.

Let's worry about the important things.

Gary will never help educate people by trying to mislead them into thinking there are 56 Million people on SSI (disability section of Social Security.) People getting retirement wouldn't have significant fraud, because it's hard to fake being over age 62, or 66... however, there are a few Democrats doing that also, and collecting benefits for dead people, just as they vote for dead people. You'll never find a conservative doing such... only Liberals, druggies, dropouts and felons.

So, Democrats running the social services telling you that there's insignificant fraud is like telling you JFK was elected honestly, or that Sharpton loves White people.

Of course, Gary likes to tell you about homophobia too, like the murder of Matthew Shepard. Too bad it turns out Shepard was tortured and murdered by a homosexual lover angry about Shepard stealing a bunch of methamphetamine.

Funny, how EVERYTHING Liberals have told you to believe turns out to be false. Sad, actually.

What i said was your claim that the President was using disability fraud to reduce the unemployment statistics was absurd...
The fact that you could read an endorsement of fraud in my statement proves my point on absurdity...

Public Relations concerning these types of extortion and fraud is run by Democrats, as are most of the government social service offices handing out the various forms of public assistance. Thus, honesty should be double checked concerning the stats. Those allowing and not interdicting the widespread frauds perpetrated by actual employees in social services will not expose the level of fraud. The checking of fraud is uneven. The fraudsters are tricky and will maintain "legitimate" status by periodically (when coming up to review) intentionally acting out violence, or irrational public behavior. Some public service workers will actually tell these people how to maintain undeserved disability. Some will actually profit from these illegal activities by taking percentages of the monthly payouts to maintain the roles without proper review.
Democrats have taught cheating, lying and stealing as much more than income redistribution.
Not to talk shop here
But if you want to see liars in action take a study of what the Republicans on wall street are doing......
Believing that only Democrats cheat and lie... is amazingly simple minded

How do you think the Democrats keep getting elected? They don't have 2 working brain cells. They have to buy people off. I bet not one of those people who were double paid was a Republican. The totally stupid have to hang together.

That is the type of thinking that has us massively in debt and major distortions appearing throughout the land. If you really believe that is the end of it then you are a fool.

No the coward refuses to answer a simple question...
Fraudulant disability claims amounted to 1\3 of 1% of total of new unemployment claims in any average month. Can you manipulate unemployment statistics by using disability as a dumping ground?
