Ben Graham are being tossed off a cliff and that got this.

Think you really.
I like to -- -- be treated as a being.

Stephen nine and of The Washington Times has been following his story.
I can't believe this.
-- -- it's got pull this off to continue gets.
Well so I mean he's been deemed by Social Security that he is disabled and it's -- -- not sending what.
You know that since I don't know how much you would necessarily disagree -- -- valuation he says that he is a bit the other bad back and he's suffering from post traumatic stress from childhood abuse.
Which makes him unable to hold down a job and so he's he fought very hard to get declared disabled and -- Social Security disability which is as you said exactly.
Exactly where you and I don't ask -- people's attention on this national.
Erratic -- Eric Wright an editor on Saturday.
That's exactly he put himself out there he's the one who who went out there with this lifestyle and -- I'm you know I'm.
This is the lifestyle I choose to live I want to live -- -- basically took his fifteen seconds of fame through the program.
-- folks look at him and said well you know okay you can live your lifestyle but obviously you on the program you talked about building a crib you talked about building a high chair adult sized high pitcher you obviously have woodworking skills.
And you run a website you know shouldn't you be may be working with those skills.
Rather than living off of disability.
On the 100 and there -- investigated as well but that's me I guess what I'm asking areas what is the standard by which -- dead.
You know Social Security.
-- -- a -- that we're talking about here we're gonna not be even lower than just the basic.
The system we have in place explain that's.
Well I mean Social Security to basic system of course is -- is is a pension system or refer for old folks disability is if you cannot work or you can work very limited.
And essentially they they do they they do a trade off if you can work limited -- -- reduce your payments your checks.
-- but this is a situation where they're supposed to be going back and checking regularly to see if you actually are in fact disabled.
And unable to work and that's essentially what what senator Coburn -- called for here is.
He wants the inspector general to go back and look at essentially look at make sure that they're regularly that Sosa's good administration.
Is regularly checking on these folks and in particular -- about these two folks and why the Social Security deem them disabled you'll.
I suspect you'll start seeing a lot of investigations of -- either there are a couple stories out.
About asset side being abused and I think you'll start seeing a lot more investigations about SSI overall and who's actually getting.
-- I want to -- -- -- is Nielsen families.
Very good targets here thank you very much you know and unpleasant part so this guy's sense out of -- Republican strategist Angela Dodd says this is to.
Just making suckers of its.
The bottom lines is there's been fraud in the system for decades and you do have.
A lot of people that receive -- SSI check that shouldn't the Social Security Administration should keep tabs but there is a process mail for you do an application.
In to prove that you cannot hold -- not having sat them when congress wants to steady an issue.
When congress wants to hold hearings on the issue.
They want attention for headlines -- NASA -- right now we're giving them headlines.
But there's been a pride and assistant as a problem with the system in the system is going to go bankrupt.
You had how -- -- -- about the lockbox you had -- still want to privatize part of Social Security give you a choice.
But it ended the day we know that -- a problem.
Scheduled to study at the security administration doesn't decide the steady at need to solve the pop you know the.
And as I don't case against a few and far extremely talented outfielders it's bizarre but that -- I'm just wondering if if you know hundreds of everyone's wants -- to -- run it is.
Why can't we more diligently just -- the money that goes out period.
Not only do we need to police the money vehicles out.
Congress has committed a fraud for years basically have a Social Security trust fund sold in that can't puts money in there.
But congress takes it out and spends it on Iraq.
So what would someone policing this -- have to do -- -- -- -- -- he's still in the -- for good all things checked.
I don't know what I think that there needs to be as -- as a reporter said earlier you can build a -- If you -- seven regular clothes and go to loans -- and buy lumber and built at trinity you know is going -- regular clothes.
But -- -- said in the stagnant on an indictment but don't know he's not going to -- I'd say get at a -- you know and I think it it will probably rest him for being indecent but having said that if you can.
