But don’t worry about Obamacare fraud, we’ve already taken that into account.

This has really been weighing on my mind. I HATE TROUBLE; however, I do know someone who is taking severe advantage of Disability. Disability was there for me when I needed it; and as soon as I could get back to work, I DID!!
I thought (in my stupid-ness) that a man I knew might need to earn extra $, so I offered him work around my home. I have lived here 26 years and things need to be repaired. What he wanted to charge was way, way too much; and I turned him down.
He didn’t need the extra work because he was making a LOT more $ doing P-T work…enough to buy a plot of land for a NEW Mobile home (and they ARE VERY fancy: Hot tubs built in; garage, etc.
All of the $ was “cash.” He also bought a new motorcycle (and those are NOT cheap) as well as a brand new SUV (don’t ask me what model…I don’t know). I can’t afford them, so I don’t keep up with how much they cost.
After reading this…I think I am going to go ahead and turn him in.
