Mallon Faircloth (Doc. No. 14), filed June 2, 2008. It is recommended that the Commissioner's decision to deny Claimant's application for social security benefits be AFFIRMED. Claimant has filed a timely objection. (Doc. No. 15). Claimant's objection raises the issues and arguments raised before the Magistrate Judge. The Magistrate Judge addressed said arguments in his recommendation and found in favor of the Commissioner. Specifically, the Magistrate Judge addressed the issues of whether the ALJ considered all of the medical evidence, including Claimant's mental capacity, whether the ALJ erred in composing an incomplete hypothetical question to the vocational expert, and whether the ALJ failed to properly evaluate the Claimant's subjective allegations of pain. The Magistrate Judge made findings of fact and conclusions of law. Upon review the Court agrees with the Magistrate Judge's recommendations. Accordingly, the Claimant's objection (Doc. No. 15) is OVERRULED. Upon full consideration of the record, the Court finds that said Recommendation (Doc. No. 14) should be, and hereby is, ACCEPTED, ADOPTED and made the order of this Court for reason of the findings made and reasons set out therein, and for reason of the findings and reasons set out herein.. Therefore, the Commissioner's decision to deny Claimant's application for social security benefits is AFFIRMED. SO ORDERED, this 30th day of September, 2008. /s/W. Louis Sands W.
