Who the heck is minding the store at social services? The amount of fraud is shocking.How about the investigators get paid on a percentage of the money they save the taxpayers then you will see some action.
Ouch

Oh my aching back! Way to many bottom feeders ripping off John Q Public. The whole situation is depressing. Wait a minute with my condition I can apply at social services.

At least she was CAUGHT! Now, have her make restitution and sent to house confinement for 30 days. Don't send her to jail, if they do then we have to feed her, provide medical care,etc. You get the picture, we pay again!

We need a full crackdown on medicaid in this county. Oh it's fine if you're on it TEMPORARILY until you get on your feet- that's what it was supposed to be for. It's not supposed to be a career. I'm sick and tired of all these lazy, able bodied people getting free food, housing, healthcare, utilities, and now cell phones!!! They lay around all day long smoking, drinking,texting on their free phones and they're the first ones to bitch when they come into your place of business if you make a mistake. And you are working so that they don't have to! There is one lady in town who has been on Medicaid for YEARS. She is able bodied. She doesn't work. She works the system. She and others need to be kicked off and into the workforce just like the rest of us. In the meantime, we just continue to lose business and cut education for our kids to support these losers. Why don't our elected officials have the balls to say we can't afford career medicaid and cut it? They don't have a problem cutting education or laying off working people who are contributing something to society! Amen. OK- end of rant.

Medicaid costs in New York are more than California and Texas combined, that is a fact no B.S. I wish my health insurance was free to me and had that kind of coverage. I guess if I was fat, lazy and a cry baby it could be.

The American Middle Class is under assault by both the Super Rich and those working the system. We pay higher taxes to support these entitlement programs that we may never be able to use ourselves.

Just the tip of the iceberg.Imagine the money that could be saved if there was agressive investigations. I constantly see people on disability that can work any cash job but can't work a real job.

I know a couple right now out in well close to st johnsville that are collecting disability benefits through the government and on the side are painting houses for cash daily. Wish there was a reward for turning people like this in, I certainly wouldn't mind making the phone call to get me some cash. Call me a snitch, whatever, I consider myself paid and one less unjust collector off the state pay roll.

I'm just personally amazed with all the f@@@en scammers out there....can't work at all so they get benefits, however, like said above a cash job on the side is doable as long as they don't have to report it or lose "free money"!

You can report it! That's what has to happen in every small town in every state of the union. You'll be holding your hand on your a## for a long time if you think the government is just going to fix the problem. I would suggest looking up the # for DSS online and/or the county sheriff's office (note above- that's who handled this case).
I once saw a lady (while I was waiting for a legitimately injured family member) come into the ER by ambulance for diaper cream for her baby. I know this because she announced it loudly to the desk help and the nurses- everyone in the place heard her. They all seemed to know her,so I take it she's a regular there. They got her in and out and called a TAXI- paid for by you and I who WORK to support this lifestyle-to take her home. Ambulance fees, not to mention tying up an ambulance; hospital fees; taxi fare- probably cost the taxpayers well over $1,000: for a $3-4 tube of diaper cream. THIS IS ABUSE.

Thing is the ones who really need it end up with some type of restriction put on their medicaid and life saving medications aren't paid for until it is appealed then sometimes too late! all the while these people can pull fraud out their yangs and get away with it! I have two Children, and I have cancer yes very disabling. I care for my children Daily while on Chemo Therapy, I am on NYW SSI, and Medicaid, but the medicaid has certain restriction while otherr are able to work and are just to damn lazy get everything paid for. I have a house I pay Rent, I use extra money because I am on SSI I do not recieve money for TA. I use the small check I get a month to get all necessities, wish I could have that wish list and sit on my ass, but even disabled and sick, being a full time single mom is a 24/7 job even with sick children also...Sick of people in this world crying wolf! what would happen if they were really sick someday and that fruad was brought up! they'd be fucked then huh? ok, okay, Rant over too much to say about this...

I tried to do some quick shopping but forget it, the store was loaded with smelly people in stretch pants in slow motion filling their carts with junk food.Now I know why people avoid shopping on the 1st and 15th of the month.Pathetic.

If you are truly eligible and are not abusing it then you shouldn't have to worry about it. Any investigation of your situation will support your claim. What I, and all these other people, have had it with are having to try to make ends meet supporting a family of 4 and seeing more and more of our paychecks dwindle away to support lazy, able bodied bums who sit on their a4464 all day. I don't know if I will have a job next week. My kids get sick too, just like yours. What will we do? All I'm saying is there is WAY TOO MUCH ABUSE and the whole system needs to be severely restructured.
