e a correlation between tightening regulations and reduced access particularly among those the program is designed to help while people misrepresenting to "get" something they do not qualify for still are able to access this service or program. One reason would be a misrepresentor,(" scammer") does not have the disease for instance in a disability claim. Therefore they have the full awesome power of the human brain to figure out how to access what they want. Someone who is disabled is more likely to have low energy because of disability and is more likely to drop off the programs rolls due to failure to abide by a regulation. This goes together with America spending $100 so that the "wrong person" doesn't get $45. This is why our insurance industry contributes nothing to health care except costly bureaus of underwriters. Same with our social services. We would spend less money and probably still serve the intended populations without the means testing/hoop jumping hazing we inflict on those who seek social services. I guess this is so they ( users of social services) feel shame, which some who live in fear someone is getting something they are not might approve of, but it will cost money.
What does that mean? Maybe we can get Righty libertarian types to let off the weight of the Fundamentalist state cause of expense.
