We always knew the left was trying to help illegals over American citizens. Now we have the proof.
It’s hard to understand why democrats want to bend over backwards to help illegal aliens. These people broke the law, do not pay into the system, and abuse government-funded programs. Yet the left supports them over citizens and immigrants who came here the right way.
Despite all our protesting, the Obama administration made it easier for illegals to enter and stay in America. Plus, he did something that we are only now learning about. Something that cost Americans $1 billion.
From Yes I’m Right:
Obama had apparently cheated the American public out of $1 billion in social security funds by awarding money to those WITHOUT social security numbers…
The Social Security Administration paid $1 billion in benefits to individuals who did not have a Social Security Number (SSN), according to a new audit.
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.
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.”
So yeah. People without Social Security numbers means they are not citizens. Most likely illegal aliens. Yet they were able to find a loophole in the system by taking money from recipients who couldn’t go through the process themselves.
That’s two despicable things in one. One, they’re cheating the government out of cash. And two, they’re taking advantage of elderly people who cannot take care of themselves.
For this to happen on a small scale is understandable. It would be difficult for the SSA to track down a few cheats, here and there. For it to have cost the government $1 billion, it means a wide effort. Illegals couldn’t have done that on their own.
My guess is they were coached in how to do it, with the help of the SSA itself.
That would fit in with Obama’s goal of protecting illegals.
Now that we know about this, we have to demand: what’s going to be done about it?
