At Work

It seems we can pay for anything by cutting fraud and waste🤑

The proposal also calls for providing six weeks of paid maternity leave through unemployment benefits to parents whose employers don’t offer paid maternity leave….The Trump campaign said the cost of his paid-leave policy would be offset by reducing waste and abuse in the unemployment insurance program.

Where have I heard the fraud and waste bit before? Oh yes, Obamacare snd Medicare😗

Forget for a moment the debatable issue of why taxpayers should fund paid leave for other Americans who decide to have children, the issue of the moment is the absurdity of assuming it can be paid for by reducing fraud and waste; something dare I mention should be the ongoing job of the bureaucracy running the unemployment insurance program. 

I wonder what they are going to use the money for from cutting fraud and waste in the paid  maternity leave program?

We have a knack for paying for the things we want by not actually paying for them. Aren’t you insulted yet by the pandering?

  1. Maybe I’m wrong but I feel this is an excellent benefit. Notice most who debunk it are the male population. And, if fraud waste and abuse does not exist why do I have to take extensive testing every year? Costly? Yes. Worth the investment? Yes. Times have changed the way I understand the funding is that it is not entirely funded by FWA. Why are we not open to new ideas? We all know that this needs to be discussed. The proposal is a starting point

    • Of course, it’s an excellent benefit if you are going to use it. Everything we want can be an excellent benefit as long as someone else is paying for it and we understand nothing is free. The problem here is that paying for a new entitlement by saying they will cut fraud is not paying for it. Nobody will actually do it or check on it after implementation.

  2. “The proposal also calls for providing six weeks of paid maternity leave through unemployment benefits to parents whose employers don’t offer paid maternity leave”…Does anyone really think that employers would continue to offer paid maternity leave once the benefit is covered by unemployment benefits?
