Confused Priorities


The Social Security Administration is rolling out a new system to reduce overpayments to people on Disability Insurance who also work. This is the same agency that recently bowed to pressure from employers, politicians, and racial-identity groups to stop sending out “no-match” letters to employers of illegal aliens, whose ostensible Social Security numbers didn’t match the name provided (about half of illegals work on the books, believe it or not). A nice summary of our immigration priorities: the government is hunting down cripples who have jobs on the side, but is consciously ignoring evidence of illegal-alien workers.
