Do you know how much welfare fraud there is?


What costs more, contractor fraud against the federal government for our wars, or welfare fraud?

One is more, we should tackle that one first.

If trump cuts one damn thing that affects senior citizens adversely, like medicare or medicaid, he can kiss the presidency good by.

Geezers vote and they vote for self preservation and health, that's about all they care about.

Neither do I but I absolutely do NOT support cutting federal disability dollars to veterans (and others) with PTSD before they have completed their treatment.

Take the money from war profiteers instead. There's no hell deep enough for a war profiteer.

Did you miss this ?


Homeland Security's budget would grow by 3 percent; the National Nuclear Security Administration's by 19 percent; and the Department of Veterans Affairs' by 13 percent.

"Modifications in Medicare prescription-drug pricing would account for $130 billion in savings."

Not only will that help Medicare prescription drug pricing. It will help the entire country.


Would it? Or would Big Pharma pass on the costs to consumers and private insurance? Or will the stockholders pay, when their Big Pharma stocks drop?

I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around how Republican "small government" is going to regulate Blue Chip companies'private industry drug prices.

Nah, I rather focus on welfare fraud as it eats society at its core, but why not both?

Fraud is fraud, regardless of whos doing it more.

I don’t support cuts to benefits American citizens receive. I would rather see the cuts to our endless and useless wars.


I agree. It's already hard enough for disabled people to get disability. And it seems to me the foodstamp program is doing its job. I haven't read about a lot of fraud there.

Taking benefits from people that need them isnt a good thing.

If a person is disabled then they are disabled. Them being a drug addict doesn't change the fact that they a disabled person.

Buying drugs is already illegal.

I don’t support” Schiffless “ Americans that are able to work. Making a conscious decision not to work because they can receive handouts while sitting on their ass .


Give us one example of such a person.

You'd rather focus on indiscriminately cutting programs because fraud exists? Are widespread cuts aimed at the fraud, or just cuts?

Do you think the fact some people abuse social programs eats at the core of our society more than wars built on lies? Or is it possible some of our frayed society is a result of a neglect on our house while we project on everyone else's?

Which one bugs me more?

I have a salary job I work full time. I have a second job so I can work hard today so I don't have to tomorrow.

Would I rather my taxes go to feed ten families while maybe two could get by without.... Or the longest and most costly wars in this nation's history, one of which never attacked us. The latter costs vast amounts more.

This isn't an emotional disposition on my part... It's a logical one. Lashing against my countrymen while ignoring the elephant in the room would just make me feel spiteful.

Well this is where we disagree and part ways.

I too work full time as well as my wife and we have seen first hand how bad welfare fraud has become, this isn't onsies ans twosies, but a systemic issue that needs to be addressed.

Infact, I'd wager a society entitled to handouts results in a "frayed" house, no need for projection as I indicated to another poster just how easy it is to do.

As for "Wars", well that's your personal issue, I willingly served in this climate and I am a bit warhawkish considering my Nationalism, maybe its because I understand the reality of the world.
Funding is not the problem, it can be better, rather distribution is key. We need a heavy handed approach to contractors who try to swindle the system.

Trump is the right man for the Job.

What's the point of being warhawkish?

And I don't mean for your service... Which I have no question you did with the right intentions, to serve and protect our nation.

But I mean when you and I talk about policy. Why be warhawkish if you're nationist from a policy perspective.

The wars serve globalist and transnational interests... Not ours, or our nations solely.

When my dealer tells me 1/3 of the Mercedes they sell go to people on state aid, that's a problem. California is so bad people come from other states and even other countries to mooch, most people have no idea of the true scale but it's in the 100+ billion range spent in 20-40 year olds eating junk food and getting high.

It's funny, you seem to think those same geezers forgot about the commies, and protecting the US from them, yet the left it trotting out Socialists. I bet those geezers didn't forget. They care about that too.

It's just more posturing, and it won't happen. That's why he's spreading it out over 10 years. There's a 100% chance of failure, but his base gets all warm and fuzzy when he says he's going to do bad things to poor people.

In all, the White House is seeking to cut $4.4 trillion in federal spending over the next 10 years, including reductions in spending on food stamps and federal disability benefits through more stringent work and eligibility requirements.


If theres one thing that could make Trump lose 2020.



That's it.

Meanwhile you got peeps all over the place
creamin for forceful ‘wealth redistribution’

Yes, one can only tread lightly here. Or not.

A lot to run through the promotional heads,
and causes wonder as to who put it up first
as a campaign concern. It’s a lot of material
to consider.

Senator Palantine in the talk with his advisor/attache:

“If we go out to California unprepared they’ll
eat us alive!

“Look: We have to push the mandatory welfare.”
