12/3/2010 Judge Demands Documentation
A week after the hearing, Judge Collyer ordered the government to file a supplemental brief with legal and regulatory citations concerning
Whether a recipient of SSI benefits in 1967 was required to repay all SSI benefits in order to avoid Medicare, when such a requirement/interpretation was adopted, and by what statute, regulation, or administrative decision.
This question addresses the coreof our legal argument. We have argued that the punitive requirement of retirees to repay or forgo their SSI in order to not participate in Medicare is an act of bureaucratic overreach and has no basis in law, a direct violation of Article. I., Section. 1. of the US Constitution.
