Tennessee politics behind the scenes
The TANF budget is $17.28B. The fraud identified is $29'543. There are bigger issues. That's nothing.
You are mixing numbers. The federal budget for TANF mixed with state individual fraud amounts. Apples and oranges.
Okay. So what's the Tennessee TANF budget?
oh! ONLY $29k. Why should we worry about such a small amount of money being wasted? Anonymous, you are a putz! Do you realize that a lot of folks don't make close to that much money in a year? Fraud is Fraud. If the folks receiving the money in error are causing it intentionally, it's a crime. If it is just the gov't screwing up, it's incompetence. Either way, it is not something I'd like my representatives just ignoring.
I'm saying there are much bigger fishes to fry first, for example... fraud and corruption within the police force and the government.Interestingly enough, Stacey has not come back with the Tennessee TANF budget. Being a Senator, he should have access to this information.
