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.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
