A tidbit buried in the middle of a wordy paragraph on page 3 points out the problem with Pigford: “These design weaknesses, hence, cannot be modified by the implementing parties.”
Design weaknesses? Keep reading and you’ll find that it’s a “design weakness” that destroys the previous insistence on effective oversight.
For example, by the terms of the settlement agreement, most claims must be evaluated based solely on the information submitted by the claimants and, as a result, the adjudicator of these claims has no way of independently verifying that information.
Let’s go slowly through that paragraph. There are three main points it makes:
- “By terms of the settlement agreement” shows the fraud is baked right in. This is a feature, not a bug.
- “most claims must be evaluated based solely on the information submitted by the claimants” means that a majority of claims are judged based only on statements by the person who stands to collect a $50,000 check.
- “adjudicator of these claims has no way of independently verifying that information” means that there’s no way for the person judging the claim to check for fraud.
Do YOU want to make $50,000 tax free? The new settlement created by the Obama administration is your chance! I did a new podcast today that shows you how to do it.
