About the Book
On June 10, 2014, Senator Tom Coburn testified before a House subcommittee on Social Security Disability. In his testimony, Senator Coburn made an interesting comment and asked what he thought was a rhetorical question. The comment was that, "Michael Astrue was approved to be the head of Social Security. The message Congress gave him is get rid of the backlog. Guess what? He did. He didn't do it right but he got rid of a lot of the backlog while he was head of Social Security. Sloppy work. But he-and that became their impetus. It's not whether they are disabled or not, it's get rid of the case. And we created a demand on him. So, Congress, again, we need to look at our own house and we need to do continuing oversight, not just bullet oversight." The question was, "Why wasn't the Inspector General catching this?"

-----
This book is a wry commentary that specifically answers that rhetorical question.
