This country has been built upon the backs of Democrats. The overlords (takers) have been and are republicans.
The Democrats try to help people too much, therefore making them too dependent.
One million dollars and the commissioners are not all over getting this money back from those that took them.

The Dems like to look the other way, giveaway benefits to all of the undeserving and collect some votes for their next election in the process.

Get rid of the DemocRAT three stooges in the FC Commissioners office.

Whatever happened to personal accountability? It is each workers responsibility to know who is covered and who is not. If you dont know, ask HR or another who can give you guidance. Those who have folks covered who should not have been should have to pay back the state/county for benefits paid. These people are not children. They are adults, not dependents of the county/state. Accountability. Accountability. Accountability.

Asking HR is just a joke as well. If they took responsibility for their job descriptions. Personal accountability is called fraud.

I hate to break it to ya, but "domestic benefits" have the potential to cost far less than the "traditional / proper family" costs. It's obvious that you're referring to gays / lesbians when you talk about your disdain for domestic benefits. Most gay / lesbian couples never have children to cover.
Covering Wives / Husbands and 2-3 children is A LOT more expensive than covering ONE PARTNER of a non traditionally married couple. Just covering the tab for a single labor and delivery can cost more than covering one adult for 10 years.

It saddens me the people of columbus disrepect government employees. I'll grant you their are some bad apples. I have seen a large increase recently. Many of the na sayers thought government work paid to little and left to few promotion options for them. These are the same people who are now saying government employees are ripping of the public. This is all part of the plan to turn citizens against each other and the media has fostered all of this. Look at europes riots, media loves big government as a whipping boy.

This **** happens in the private sector too ... only those stories are given to the media.
If it happens in the "private sector" the company has a vested interest in preventing it or at least managing it as those costs are rolled into the "cost of goods sold" for their respective 'good' or 'service'. Companies that don't manage this cost will be uncompetitive relative to their peers that do manage the problem and will not survive. There is no such consideration in the public sector. These issues are buried and ignored until somoeone gets fed up.

Also, if it happens in the "private sector", it is a matter of dollars exchanged freely and involves the agency relationship between owners and management. In the public sector, it involves confiscatory tax revenue. It goes without saying that the media has a far greater obligation to report public sector benefits abuse than private sector benefits abuse.

Hey Franklin Co Commissioners: Do your job and rid these scammers from getting benefits they do not deserve.
Better yet, those that took them should have 2 choices, 1. pay in full all benefits paid out immediately or 2. prosecute them.

And, why do these employees not get fired????

"Generally, the employees here are honest, so I think it was probably inadvertent, forgetting to take somebody off," Franklin County Commissioner Marilyn Brown said.

LOL, that is rich coming from this scum.
