Democrats would have the taxpaying American public believe that each and every welfare user is a fine, upstanding and hard-working member of the community who’s simply fallen on tough times.
These same liberals would also have it believed that welfare is not a handout or tax-funded charity, but rather a necessary safety hatch for those facing emergency situations.
But believing every welfare user is ethical is about as sensible as believing every illegal immigrant who crosses into America is honest, and simply seeking work (though to Democrats, that is sensible, mind you).
“A Pennsylvania woman has been arrested for collecting more than $100,000 in welfare benefits for three children that don’t exist, authorities said.”
I’m sorry – but isn’t that what Republicans have been warning about for years? That the entitlement program is rife with scammers and thieves, and that it needs an immediate overhaul and infusion of accountability?
Sabrina Strothers, 23, of Pittsburgh, was arrested and charged with two counts of forgery and two counts of making false statements, and one count of theft by deception, Trib Live reported.
She had told authorities her three children, Thomas, Tomalyia and Tyreik Wilson were born in November 2008. Only problem is: she apparently has no children.
“Investigators say that the social security numbers she claimed for her children belonged to people born in 1887, 1945 and 1960,” Breitbart reported.
This is exactly the sort of thing that has to stop. The abuse of these assistance programs has long since spiraled out of control, and these leeches have managed to cripple the entire system, so Donald Trump had better make some significant changes.
And if and when he does, we should all be VERY thankful.
