The optimal amount is $0.00.

Maybe they should be guilt tripping all the fraudulent claim artists and lawyers, rather than citing the loss leader, queen for a day tear jerkers.

If the frauds were cleared out of the system, then the "worthy" would have an easier time.

The usual liberal press formula: identify a sympathetic case from a huge field of individuals, use that case to characterize the field without either exploring the field itself objectively or even verifying that the sympathetic case has validity, i.e. is their sob story real or made up. Invoke powerful emotions over the "injustice", attack, sit back and wait for the riot.

Articles like this are "press trolls" and are not worthy of the word journalism.

When such cases eventually are deemed meritorious, then the claimants are give past benefits in a lump sum with interest. Of course, even if they get better or can work or DO work, they are on the gravy train and never get off.

Don't you know that Social Security "Disability" is the new welfare???

Everyone on it should be investigated periodically.

And many of those collecting SSI disability and Medicaid are tea party members.
