Glad some of the folks abusing system have been brought to justice.

The system we have is taken advantage of by many, check into the medicaid diversion plan, we as taxpayers are paying to keep well to do elderly folks in assisted living facilities, some are fancy and cost 5,000,00 monthly for each apt.. They turn over all their possessions to loved ones to falsely prove they have no money so they can get the medicaid diversion which goes by many names depending of the state. It is a large scam that needs to stop, now.

The whole system is fraudulent from the top down. Sad but there won't be any change any time soon. Nys caters to there bums other states are sending there scum here because our system pays the most. Unfortunately welfare has become some sort of entitlement for some dont get me wrong the premis of it i believe in but more often than not the ones who truly need the help never get it. I have a problem with the generation abusers teaching there whole family to milk the system for a free lifestyle thats bs. But sadly those dirtbags out number the true working class and make up the majority in votes politically to challenge welfare is suicide for any pollatician.

Are you saying that they are receiving food stamps fraudulently or are you saying they are qualified to receive food stamps, but you don't think they should?

If you want to see a sight, go watch the people that go to food pantries to get their handout. You would be surprised to see how many people who make a very good living go for the free food.

Better check out the Rockhill boy. Has and continues to abuse the system. Is able to work but just too lazy. When I say lazy I do not mean disabled. Make these people work and save the benefits for those who really are in need

People don't take it, they qualify for it....I would not for one minute want to find myself in the circumstances that I would qualify, would you?

Why is it that we hear that Social Security is running out of money(that working folks paid into), and companies are cutting back on salaries, etc., but you never hear about welfare benefits being cut?

Convicts are the worst ones. When its time to parole they go see the psych dr get put on meds that automatically qualify them as a disable. Tell me that is not a scam these bums get everything handed to them on ur dime and mine.

jean smith is one of these people and she got them to not print her name in the paper along with social security fraud for over two years, she rents out a place at 28 branch st, malone do not rent it there is mold in the ceiling, under the kitchen sink, leaks in the basement and the electrical box is a fire hazard. there are holes in the floor big enough for a child to fall threw, and the outlets are not 6 feet apart. this house is so far out of code its not funny. just another scumbag getting away with screwing the system and all she got was a slap on the wrist. do not rent from her and encourage this behavior. along with her bad judgment of swearing in front of children and threatening people. she does not care about other peoples safety or the welfare of children.

yeah him and his son. Both are named Ronald. They have made a career out of collecting the benefits. Put these very capable people to work. I see the son driving all over Malone in a little orange car. Does the state pay for him to drive up and down main street. I highly doubt that he is looking for a job. More than likely looking for a std. Oh but no worries, he has medicaid to pay for any treatment when everyone else has to work and pay for Obama care.

Jordan Rockhills mom showed him how to cheat the system to get a retard check . He has never worked a day in his life and look at the brand new truck he has . He used to have a brand new ford car but he wrecked that one drunk while he was 20 . He is on full disability and no one checks in on it ! He is fine and brags about how does not have to work and brags about how his truck is so nice and lifted.
