  1. A Witch Hunt by any other name. This will bring out all the haters, the envious, the jealous and the down right mean spirited, who just want to make life miserable for some poor disabled person because they are perceived to be “Getting over, while poor me has to actually work”.

    Look out!!! Big Brother is watching!

    Too bad the GAO can’t lend its pitbullish tenacity to congress, which has let big corporations and the rich “Get over” by exploiting every loophole conveniently laid out for them so that pay very little or no taxes on the backs of those who ended up being injured on the job…the true tax payers.
