newspaper article #1
I just read a shocking article in the chicago tribune. apparantly, social security wrongly declares 14,000 people dead each year. A 52 year old woman named Laura Brooks discovered this when she stopped recieving disability checks, and when her rent and student load payments were had bounced. But obiviously she isn't the only person this has happened to. It took months before social security had "revived" her.. she had to prove herself alive first. After things were finally sorted out, social security paid for her bounced checks but never refunded her the disability, nor did they apoligize for the mishap. Its dumb things like these that makes america seem stupider by the year.
