Thank goodness Montgomery County welfare fraud investigators are on the job. I hope they nail every single person who is abusing the system.

Just keep turning them in. Investigations take time, and there are many of them. Just be patient, and they all get caught eventually.

not every one on pa is cheating the system and they are not lazy. this area suffers from a lack of jobs far and few between and most of the ones we have a min wage close to impossible to live on for a single person not picture a family. rent food gas electric. if a person does not have a car they can not get to the few jobs that may pay good. i agree go after the scam artist but do not paint everyone on pa with the same brush. for all you know you may find your self on the bread line if the economy does not improve.

that was never my intention and i am truly sorry if i offended you. it was the scam artist/freeloader that i was refering to. i understand how hard it can be to make ends meet. i'm in the same boat, just not taking any assistance. i would never belittle anyone who was down and needed a little help. just the ones who live a lifestyle beyond their means thanks to the taxpayers who fund their lifestyle

this isnt right, my family lives on social security and barely makes it by, while people scamming the system lives higher on the hog. some people need it to survive in today's world, and they try their best to make ends meet,while the scammers have no regard towards the needy.

A whole family is on disability ??? I think not...
Bet Mc Donalds is hiring today. Can't help that that is below you. Disability has nothing to do with how long you worked. They are lazy when they can do some work and wont.

By the way, take some GED classes in the English language.

i write for inbred dog meat retards like you.
So yes it is possible for 2 disabled people to wed and have a family so what is your point a single person on ssd male or female raising kids alone. so think again.
