as a former investigator who dealt with welfare fraud i think i have a unique perspective in that i believe all benefits should be very temporary, your qualifyinf information should be scrutinized and verified via 3rd party, a life plan should be established to allow individuals hope of recovery, and strict enforcment of the law and rules. Fraud hurts those who are really in need, those who are honest and simply found themselves down and out.....temporarily. However, my perspective is not realistic.....why you may ask.....first the politicians i worked for care more about image not fiscal responsibility, second, gov't is too tangled and messy to work out a clear strategy for this, and thirdly people are just not committed enough to stand together to force our gov't to enact real changes. say hello to the forever corporate world.
