How should an ethical individual react to the knowledge of disability fraud?
Report. I am sure the SSA has a process to do such. What did I do? (Was 23 at the time so to best of my memory) Remember telling the HC and our admin...but that was more out of a sense of..."is this not a sorry excuse of a parent" type of talk and not a "what do i need to do...what are my obligations"
Should a citizen or tax payer be concerned when an excellent athlete with at least the aptitude for school to be eligible to play sports is getting a disability check?
I think we all should. All of our enititlement programs are ripe with fraud. Any program, organization, etc. with a significant number of people will contain fraud, misuse, abuse...get back to that problematic human nature thing!
I can remember being in school and a classmate who had basically same home life, socio-economic status, etc. as myself (middle class) was getting free & reduced lunches. I remember him saying, "my dad says that if other people can get this we are going to also" This was definately a family that had no way of qualifying for the program unless they were playing creative financial reporting.
