Right? Anyone disagree?
So we're all in agreement the Social Security Administration is not a rationally constructed bureaucracy. As the FederalComputer Week reports:
"Under a joint federal-state funding relationship, SSA pays the full salaries of state employees who do initial processing of disability claims under the federal Disability Determination Services program."Because they're state employees, not Feds, some 19 states have furloughed these people, meaning SSA can't timely service these claims.
