Waste, Fraud and Abuse

This Data Visualization Of Pigford II Claims Says It All: This amazing graphic shows how the fraudulent claims are centered on a city where training programs in how to commit undetectable fraud are run. 1.2 Billion is going out to people who have to claim only that they "attempted to farm" and produce no documentation.

I used to hate when conservatives would go on about waste fraud and abuse in the welfare system when the potential for savings from those sources was really very limited. But in this case the program seems designed to make it easier to commit fraud, that its not a bug but a feature.
