8 BILLION is a lot for one year and even exceeds the approximately 5 BILLION that we give to Israel and Egypt every year.

The Obama Administration was just getting situated and evaluating the scope of damage that 8 years of the Bush had done to this nation in 2009. Just like the Gulf oil spill, there will be lingering effects of the Bush years for generations; I’m just thankful that President Obama is here now to at least get some of this stuff corrected.

Wipe the goo off your slobbering lips. You have yet to fault Obama for anything. Instead, it's 'he inherited this or that.'
You are a pathetic Obamabot!

No it wasn't Bush who misappropriated the $8billion dollars. It was the totally incompetent Obama people. It went to the poor, and unfortunate people who never paid a cent into S S. This bunch has misappropriated so much money it isn't funny.

How can the obama people just be getting started on this S S thing when they have been in office 2 1/2 years. How long will it take to get started? Stop trying to make excuses for them. We know they are slow, and stupid. But you cannot keep blaming Bush any longer. Even that moron Turban Durbin said, no more using Bush. These Democrats are the worst we have ever elected.

Just like welfare fraud, it is not tied to any one administration .... for DECADES!. It does smack of the progressive way of doing business though.

bush made obama bail out the banks too.(just in time to hand out their million dollar bonuses) bush also makes obama fight agains any bills that are put in place to get the illegals out.(in a time when legal citizens cant find a job and cant afford food)its also bush fault that we are now involved in 4 wars as vs. 2 ( libya, and the secret war were added on from obama) thats right, the gitmo prison that bush did was so bad that obama "pledged" to his followers to shut it down,he did shut it down,just to reopen it. its also bushs fault for all the tornadoes right? dont get me wrong,im not a bush supporter,but im honestly not sure which administartion was worse,bush,or obama.

i would go as far as to say that he hates america and americans,but i do agree with the bush part.the problem is that americans in general are just so damn gollible.what type of administration did they expect from a man with basically no experience? he promised change and he delivered on that one.we changed from 2 wars to 4 wars,the gas prices changed,the food prices changed,the banks changed from just ripping us off to ripping us off then us bailing them out,and 4 years ago i had a dollar in my pocket, now all i have is CHANGE

poor people are ruining this country, they contribute nothing (taxes) yet they consume what others contribute (taxes paid by taxpayers)

Give them 6 more months of welfare, then end the program, every man for himself.

Do you chuckleheads actually read these articles?

The over payments are due to people under-reporting resources. It may be fun for you jokers to pretend this is some sort of failure on Obama's part. These over payments have been happening throughout the former administrations. It was Obama's initiative to find these over payments and stop them.

[In 2009, President Barack Obama directed federal agencies to reduce improper payments, and last year, Congress set a goal of reducing the payments by $50 billion by 2012.]

Those knuckle dragging mouth breathers on the right can't read so of course they don't know what the article actually said. Unless FOX news or hate radio tells them what to think and say, they are mindless and clueless and fueled by their hate and self loathing.

Keep up the good work President Obama.

Damn....obama, would love that...

it would cause america to crash and burn by the end of the year.....

and, be begging the Eurpoean Union to allow America a membership....

Do you just not understand that america's economy is based on a false economy and now MUST have money in non-producers pockets to continue the false economy spending....

the number of unemployed running out of benefit checks without finding employment to replace the checks with a income to put back into the economy is being felt all over the country RIGHT NOW....

America's prosperity of the past 40 years has been based on a false economy.
