Forum Post: End SSI For Good

Posted 2 years ago on March 3, 2012, 2:18 p.m. EST by NightShade (163)

I think they should end SSI, only the physically disabled & the old should receive a government check. I've known people that tell doctors they hear voices in there end but in reality they don't just so they can see a public consular once a month get a prescription of meds they don't take and collect $800+ a month while they sit on there asses don't do anything and cause trouble with other people because they got the free time.

Mean while I struggle to death working to support myself and pay into a system that supports their lazy asses.

I'm talking about these lazy garbage citizens that like to cause trouble with people while they receive their monthly government checks for not doing anything. I don't care how stupid or crazy you are, you can still physically work.

Perhaps if all these SSI government check milkers weren't getting handouts tomorrow, than America would finally wake up to the real issue of poverty, unfair wage balances and workers treatment.

My brother gets SSI. He's a violent schizophrenic with a criminal record a mile long if he were legally responsible for his crimes. His check goes to the state mental hospital were he is housed to pay for his care and when he is doing well, he works in the community mopping floors in a local restaurant.

Feel better? If you want more of these people to work, offer them jobs. My brother gains a lot of self-esteem from working. He's trying very hard to move up to washing dishes, but is being side-lined by some type of tardive dyskenisia or serious movement disorder and can't work right now.

My blind friend receives SSI. She is a 4 year graduate of a good college and went to a special high school for the blind. Most people don't know she's blind the first time they meet her. She can iron clothes better than I can. Honestly. She can't even find a volunteer position, because all the businesses say she's too much of a legal liability. She's worked so hard to be able to work, but no one will hire her. It's not her fault.

If they end social welfare, they should end corporate welfare too.

A bank bailout is essentially SSI for the rich.

SSI for blind people?

[-] 1 points by invient (360) 2 years ago

SSI puts out yearly analysis on the subject of fraud. I believe the % is somewhere along 5%... since there are at least 50 million people on SSI currently (for w/e reason)... 5% of 50 million is < 3 million or < 1% of the population is fraudulent the system... if you know at least a 100 people it is probable you know 1 of these people. However, if you are in the southern states (that receive more money than they put into the federal coffers), then you may know more than 1. I have no idea what the true geographical distribution of the fraudsters are.

[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 2 years ago

Sounds like you need to form a union.

Your contract negotiation skills are very lacking.

That's just lazy on your part.

[-] 1 points by GirlFriday (17435) 2 years ago

I've known people

is not an argument. You will need to provide a better argument.

I'm confused is it talking about the greedy corrupt "Hearing voices" or regular people hearing the greedy corrupt blowing smoke up their asses?

If the 1st they can afford to see a Dr. and they should.

If the 2nd, well then that's not a delusion the greedy corrupt do that in person, over the airwaves, any way possible, that is them just doing the "same old same old" propaganda pushing. So medical treatment not required - for the regular people.

Lazy garbage??

WallStreet doesn't need SSI.

[-] -2 points by DKAtoday (26307) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

That is the funny thing, they don't need it but they get it and would take more.

WallStreet Welfare - there's a crime if you ask me.

That's why I say remove the cap on FICA.

Let the lazy bitches pay.

[-] 1 points by JuanFenito (847) 2 years ago

I thought I could believe in you, Shooz. And now I see you calling workers paying into FICA "Lazy B****s?????" What is up with this, man? Am I missing something, or are you part of the trolls too?? What??

[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 2 years ago

You missed something.

I said remove the cap. Make the rich bitches pay their share.

[-] 1 points by RogerDee (411) from Montclair, NJ 2 years ago

Remove the cap and you just made a $12000 monthly benefit check for a retired 1%- because SS benefits are formulated by what a person pays in.

Are you really sure you want to do that?

[-] 2 points by shoozTroll (17632) 2 years ago

There are already family benefits caps that deal with that, although it could all be renegotiated once the cap is removed.

[-] 1 points by RogerDee (411) from Montclair, NJ 2 years ago

No, no , no. all benefits received by 1%ers, current SS law states the more you pay, the more you get back in benefits.

Ok, so you suggest we then limit SS benefits so the 1% wont get crazy huge checks... thats a means test and you have now made SS like Welfare.

Oh and we'd have to give up the "Earned Income Tax Credit" which was intended to make up for the fact that SS taxes are regressive. SInce you've removed the cap, SS taxes would be flat.

Nice way to destroy a perfectly good insurance program, thanks but no.

[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 2 years ago

Remove the cap and all of that can be negotiated.

All of it.

[-] 1 points by JuanFenito (847) 2 years ago

Whoa, thanks man, I'm seriously sorry here, I was afraid you were one of the trolls. I swear I'm starting to get paranoid here, I didn't know who was trustworthy anymore. I spend some time on neo-con type sites, and I got so used to presuming all the people on the site were arrogant rich bigoted haters of the poor before I talked to them. I'm glad to know you are on team Truth! Keep up the good work!

[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 2 years ago

It's just a silly forum, no need for paranoia.

Except for those that think we all belong to the CIA.

Means testing, remove the cap and hire more investigators to rid the system of the scum. Union and non Union have scum that milk the system. By scum I don't leave out the doctors and lawyers who help this fraud.

[-] 3 points by GypsyKing (9780) 2 years ago

You left out the real, major scum, the corporations who scam both government and the people every day, to the tune of billons of dollars. Humm . . .

I did indeed!!! CNA was my demise.....for all the commitments we can break ;)

For some of these corporations.

SS fraud is a way of life, and that would include the current Governor of Florida.............and that's just sad.

[-] 2 points by GreedKills (1119) 2 years ago

Yes it is, and many are proud they are milking the system. And at times it may even get you a seat in Government.

[-] -1 points by NightShade (163) 2 years ago

Of yeah, Shooz Walmart is just the same up here in NY, all they do is hire to SSI Scum that work part time 20 hours and under a week so Walmart doesn't have to payout benefits to more full time workers. If these people can work 15 or 20 hour work weeks than they don't need no freaking Government disabled assistance.

I know one girl that works at Walmart, perfectly healthy except she has a few screws loose in the head, she makes about $1,100 a month on SSI. $300 for food stamps, $400 in heap, and $350 a month working part time, plus she has a free government phone add that shit up. While I myself as a man make a little under $900 a month working full time at a job and I can't receive benefits because apparently I make too much at my job nor do I have a doctors slip that says I'm fraudulently disabled.

[-] 2 points by shoozTroll (17632) 2 years ago

Sounds to me like you need to join, or form a union.

They have much better negotiating skills than you do.

You're just bitching about what you perceive someone else having.

Better yet - make them pay for the economic clean-up. Like BP is supposed to be doing for the gulf spill.

[-] 2 points by shoozTroll (17632) 2 years ago

I think they already made us pay for that.

All they pay for is their cocaine, whores, DMT, scotch, and champagne.

Oooops, they made us pay for that too.

Well, see and that is the problem with the whole thing. They are actively working against themselves. It must take a lot of work to get up and look in the mirror every morning. I don't know how it is that they can reconcile their slimy disgusting filthy selves with all of this.

This is stress relieving, very therapeutic.

Hey, I really like that name nightshade. It really says it all; you're just poison. That's what you and all your ilk are, just a poison in the body politic. I'm sure that poison spreads to your families as well, and infects your community. You create a black hole that sucks everything positive out of the atmosphere until finally you choke on it yourselves.

Enjoy.

I know many people who collect SSD/SSI because they went to a lawyer who sent them to a "doctor" and now work everyday and also collect these benefits. Mean while others who are truly disabled that do not scam the system suffer.

[-] 1 points by RedSkyMorning (220) 2 years ago

I'm disabled, but because I have a lot skills and talents I've been able to switch careers to something I can do (I have to work from home). Many people are not so lucky. I also have had my family to support me as I switched. Without family support, I certainly would have had to file disability and then maybe try to start up my home businesses on government money.

SSI is basically always denied, so you have to get a lawyer. They denied my brother I was talking about above while he was an in-patient in the state mental hospital. What other evidence should be needed? My friend was a fireman for 30 years and burning beam fell on him and broke his back. He has a rod in his back and the condition is causing him to lose mobility and get arthritis. He lost his workman's comp due to one doctors stupid note in a file, was then rejected SSI and now has a lawyer to get both. Getting a lawyer has nothing to do with scamming the system. The system is broken.

[-] 1 points by GreedKills (1119) 2 years ago

I have five herniated disks DDD, stenosis and arthritis at 46 years old. I was harassed and lied to by my lawyer who I later found out that he worked for the insurance company prior to "representing" workers. I was hurt on the job and the insurance company harassed my neighbors and I. My neighbors took the insurance company's side and to this day I'm treated like a criminal even though I went through two back surgeries and need more.

I know people who claim to be injured go to a lawyer which in turn "recommends" a doctor. Those people now collect and work off the books working construction. Fraud is fraud and it hurts those who are truly injured. Never mind being under treated for my pain since some people use pain meds to get high and doctors are too scared to help those in pain.
