Lenient judges visit the woodshed
By Byron McNutt

WE HAVE A problem in this country when 191 of the most lenient administrative law judges have approved more than 85% of Social Security disability claims they heard from 2005 to 2013 at a cost to taxpayers of $153 billion.

Most of those claims had been denied one or two times previously by Social Security workers in state offices. This act of rubber-stamping claims results in lifetime payments to many people and has led to a recent hearing by the U.S. House Oversight Committee chaired by Darrell Issa, (R-Calif.)

Keep in mind, lifetime benefits average
