Federal Disability Program Abused by Workers

An article today as part of a series by the Washington Examiner finds abuse and waste in the federal worker’s disability program.  One worker collected $142,000 in disability payments.

Unfortunately, it is this type of waste and abuse that hurts those who truly need the benefits.  These are the types of cases that anger people.  The people who need the benefits may be harmed because restrictions will likely be put in place making it harder for those who need benefits to receive them.

Where are the stories about those who truly need the benefits and who are able to survive because of them?

It is ironic that the government has placed some many regulations on many industries in this country and yet there are very few in their own systems.
