Send our troops home! It is time Iran and Iraq stand on their own feet. Troops being gone so long have ruined so many live's and families. It is time their Country get there own live's together and send our people home. This has gone on way too long in the first place. Since the beginning of time those people have been fighting one another and will continue if we are there or not. There ya go, billions of dollars ...more »
People on disability benefits working for cash-We get many letters from private citizens to report fraud. We send them to OIG and nothing becomes of it. They dont have the manpower necessary to check on people committing fraud by working and collecting disability benefits.

We have a LOT of employee's that never work a 40 hour week, call in sick at least once a week or twice a week then show up on a Saturday for overtime. If you have scheduled leave for a day that would not count, but if you call in sick week after week you should not be allowed to work overtime on a Saturday.

Drug test people before paying benefits after a person gets out of jail on drug charges before we reinstate any checks. Enough is enough.
All supplies the Government needs should always be made in the USA not foreign countries.
People should beable chat with a live person at Social Security online. They would not have to wait on the phone only to get transferred to another person. Social Security should delicate one person a day to talk live with people on line just like the banks do or AT&T does.
You sent me this e-mail to suggest another idea. When I tried to log on it said no e-mail address on file. How could you send me the e-mail if you didnt already have my e-mail address? What a waste of time and money. Here's an idea. I had to do it all over again. Doesnt make sence, if you can send it to me how could you not already have it???
