After President Trump received $1.6Billion to fund his border wall on the US-Mexico border, the left has been up in arms. But their hypocrisy is easily debunked. When Obama was president they didn’t seem mind that a billion dollars in benefits was paid to people without valid social security numbers, by the Social Security Administration. The agency’s inspector general found errors in the government’s documentation for representative payees, otherwise known as individuals who receive retirement or disability payments on behalf of another person who is incapable of managing the benefits themselves. The audit released Friday found thousands of cases where there was no SSN on file. Over the last decade, the agency paid $1 billion to 22,426 representative payees who “did not have an SSN, and SSA had not followed its policy to retain the paper application.” –Fox News So why didn’t the Democrats raise a fuss about this? There is only one guess. Recipients of this SS money probably belong to the Democrats favorite voting constituency, illegal immigrants. “Furthermore, unless it takes corrective action, we estimate SSA will pay about $182.5 million in benefits, annually, to representative payees who do not have an SSN or paper application supporting their selection,” the inspector general said. Of course politicians on the left don’t have any real ambition to change this issue, because these free handouts are a purchased votes from said recipients. What would you rather, America? Our government pay $1BIL in benefits to people who do not qualify, or $1.6BIL to keep said individuals from continually robbing our system year-after-year? Click to see the original article
