A recent series of newspaper articles revealed that passengers who file fictitious injury claims against public transportation entities have become a serious menace to metropolitan areas and add a huge monetary burden to the city’s budget. The fraudulent plaintiffs in these law cases are often backed by personal injury attorneys and less than scrupulous medical doctors who conspire to defraud by feigning injuries, fabricating medical reports, and exaggerating legal complaints arising from alleged bus and train (mostly slip-and-fall) accidents.

City Attorney: “Those who look to the public trough as a means to ameliorate their economic burdens which they suffer not at all from the hands of the government should not be appeased. Who pays for the monetary judgements doled out to these fakes? You do!”

Mayor: “The honest fare payers and dutiful taxpayers are ‘rewarded’ by increased fares and higher taxes.”

The quote by the city attorney in the second paragraph probably serves to address


A. fraud as a menace that hampers city dwellers’ every day lives

B. activities of a depraved few who see public transit as a way to fund their marginal existence

C. economic burdens disproportionately placed on the virtuous instead of on the callous and selfish

D. the enormous economic interdependency between public transit and the community it serves

E. passengers who suffer actual injuries on public transit

By reading the question stem first I was mindful of city attorney's quote and who it serves to address. The terms "fraudulent" and "scrupulous" were used which made me think that the honest, law-abiding citizens suffer. Which led me to C: economic burdens disproportionately placed on the virtuous instead of the callous and selfish. This epitomized the attorney's message in my point of view.
