Welfare on Blast

Peterstown, WV

#1 Mar 31, 2011
I think it is time that we start naming people that are commiting welfare and disability fraud. Maybe if they see their name on here they will get a damn job and quit being a leech on society.
I have often wondered why there arent investigators working on this stuff? I know this county has to be one of the worst in the state. Who is supposed to investigate welfare and disability fraud in Virginia? Honestly i dont know if there is such an investigator. There should be a hotline set up to investigate these loosers.
You know, there is nothing wrong with helping someone get on their feet. BUT!!!!, why cant these people do community service for welfare? If they are disabled,,,,, they can certainly do SOMETHING! Even if it is picking up trash, answering phones,, SOMETHING!!!!!
ANYWAY, IF YOU KNOW SOMEONE WHO IS CHEATING WELFARE OR DEFRAUDING DISABILITY!!!!!!!PUT THEIR ASS ON BLAST!!!!!!!

People hire lawyers, so they know all the loopholes to get it. Look at the White family in Boone co WV, theres a movie about them and they admit on camera they are all disablity cheats, and they abuse drugs that welfare pays for.

Hmm? There are investigators for all this stuff.People get turned in and prosecuted.There are lots of people on probation for welfare fraud.They do community service,pay fines,repay social services and do community service.
As for disability;there are people who investigate them,follow them around,etc.You know,A lot of people on disability can hardly keep up with their housework.They could use some help from others.
I haven't tried to get disability yet,but I can hardly take care of housework,laundry and cooking.
It's not a crime to draw disability.I've paid in to my social security account all my life;why shouldn't I draw it if i need it.
Get your head out of the TV and meet some people.I've met people who've been convicted of welfare fraud at places I've worked.Folks will tell you all kinds of things if you are nice to them and are a good listener.

some people are getting really defensive here, i think if ya need it bad enough then u should get it but seriously there are alot of people out there that don't need either and get it, and some out there that seriously need it and fall thru the cracks, the ones that try to work but still struggle making ends meet can't get jack but others that sit on they tail all day and do nothing are livin it up off the system. something needs to be done!

I don't understand why people get so upset about this issue.With all the money the government is wasting;welfare is the least of our problems.
I've seen several threads on these forums where this is brought up.The posters use capitals and excessive punctuation to show how upset they are.
I don't get why this brings up so much emotion.
I'm a lot more upset about money given to big corporations and sent overseas.

I think they need to make it mandatory to have a drug test to even get your welfare money, #1. And #2, there are genuine people that do need the money, and can't work or sustain a steady job due to health issues. However, there are just as many abusing it. I see it everyday- and the sad thing is, I live near a household that both are on it, and they make more than I do busting my ass everyday. By the way, they are perfectly capable of working.

I think I'm reading a judgement!How in the world do you know how they feel or what their doctor says.Just because you see someone get out and do something;doesn't mean they are able to hold down a job.
I take it you mean Social Security disability.If so,these people worked and paid into their S.S.accounts.If they had good,then they may be drawing good money.If they didn't work,then they draw S.S.I. which means they only get a little more than $600 a month.
I believe I smell sour grapes.

It may be someone that had a Government job, who served their 20 years and retired? Thats how it works. Work salerly for 20 years, whether its Military, Vt, etc. you can retire.

Because I talk to them, I know. They are nice people; however..no, they arn't getting it from SS disability. They are 'young' capable souls. Sour grapes? Really? I have an opinion- no need to get hasty about the 'situation' that I know about. And I clearly stated that there are people that honestly can't work, and need it. So I'm not classifying all people on disability are raping the government.

Wish that were the case, but sadly, it isn't.

Unless they have kids and draw a TANF check;what in the world can they be getting if not SS disability.

I know a young woman that has 3 kids out of wedlock and she gets 700.00 a month in food stamps. That't not counting the medical card for her kids, her rent is paid, and her daycare. This is only one case.....imagine how much money is dished out every month for these immoral women that can't keep their legs closed. And this woman only has 3 kids, I know of many more that have 5, 6, or more kids, for all different men. You are punished for being responsible in this country.

I understand that there are those who abuse the system but you are all acting rather bloodthirsty. You aren't really paying for anything that they receive (you would pay taxes regardless so don't try that rebuttal) The alternative would be starving sick children,families torn apart,a cramped social services system lacking the government funds to truly help. Just because you think these epeople are worthless doesn't mean those children love them any less.You will probably say "It will make them get off their ass and get a job to support their family." Truth is, it won't and the children are who will suffer for it. "Keep your legs closed" isn't an alternative either. It would be truly wonderful if everyone were honest and had the motivation for self enrichmenty through hard work and education. As long as people are individual there will always be individual thinking whether it be right or wrong. What would your fix be? Take away their livelihood and leave them to die? Is this what we as a race have came to? You act as if you are envious of them. Before you respond, read the entire message and realize I am not a proponent of people using the system at all. I just realize that the majority of us are a sad lot, indeed.

This sounds like my cousin. She has had two kids by two different men, and has been drawing government disability for neary 20 years (she worked briefly, but was in the military for a few years where I think she gets most of her funds on Veteran's benefits after she feigned a mental illness).

However, a former employer of mine, who worked his entire life, and at 42 was diagnosed with HIV and had stomach cancer, and his Social Security claim was repeatedly denied and he eventually died. That's the system! I've read of many others on these Topix forums who've said the same thing: That their loved ones were seriouslly ill, but denied over and over again. INCREDIBLE! Just Incredible!

Granted there are people on disability/ welfare that need it. Then again there are people on these programs that shouldn't be. I see many on disability that have no right to be on it at all. Reforms are needed in these areas as well as others. I will be the first one to support programs such as these but there needs to be better oversight.

I think they should be put on a program based on each individual. If they did not finish high school, then they should get their GED. Then they can get some kind of training to enter the workforce. Along with that, counseling to manage their lives. If they show no progress, or initiative, cut them off and take their kids. It has to start somewhere.
