The Government and Disability


In a surprising move, this administration is doing something right about the disability scandals that are going on.  They should get some kudos for that and I am giving it to them. They are tightening  “its grip on 1,500 administrative law judges to ensure that disability benefits are awarded consistently and to rein in fraud in the program.”  Instead of letting these judges award whatever they want for whatever reason they want, they are cracking down on judges who are awarding disability benefits outside the norm.  Wow. I have written about these scandals before on this site but I never thought something would be done.   We’ll see what happens in the end because “the union that represents many of the judges complains that the change will strip them of independence and open the process to political meddling”. Yes, these judges have union.  How is that even possible?
