Letter of the day

This letter was received in response to an investigation into US disability allowance fraud:

Hi Mish
I have a niece and nephew in their early thirties. Both are perfectly healthy. They have a son with a slight learning disability. The mom got him on disability and then applied for funds to take care of him and got it. Her husband an Afghanistan vet in supply never saw a moment's action. He worked at a desk. When he came home he applied for disability claiming Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome and got on disability. His wife then applied for money to take care of him. She got it. They are also on a long list of other entitlements like welfare.
They bought a new house a year ago and a month ago they both went out and bought two brand new cars! She actually brags about playing the system.
I have no doubt there are hundreds of thousands or millions doing the same thing. Needless to say it boils my blood!
