I'm sure no one would suggest that this trouble could possibly be a result
of the 'gifts' made by Democrats in order to receive votes. And the
upcoming solution to this problem will be yet another tax increase and another
department of government to oversee the program with increased scrutiny. How do
you spell 'fiscal cliff'?Just about every episode of Judge
Judy shows perfectly able-bodied American on disability for stress, a sore leg,
anxiety, ADD, and other minor ailments. Hmm. Just saying.
One question, when did obesity become a handicap and a disability? There are
millions on disability because they are super fat and have the health related
problems that come with obesity. Instead of giving these people a wheelchair and
money to stay home and get even bigger, should we not just get them out and make
sure they exercise? There are those who are, by no fault of their own are
handicapped. There is man in Sevier County that has no legs. According to this
article he will also loose his disability money.
A bigger question: Who gets to decide who qualifies and who doesn't?
Obviously it's not being handled extremely well right now because no one
seems to think the right people are getting the benefits.
"The trouble with socialism is that eventually you run out of other
people's money to spend."Social Security (the basic
program, not the disability program) is nothing but a Ponzi scheme and it is
proven to be unsustainable. That alone is a gigantic problem.SS
Disability is a hugely abused program which has turned into a feather bed for
welfare cheats, with phoney ailments, shady lawyers, and complicit bureaucrats
who will sign up anyone who can concoct some vague problem or condition.
It's not their money, so they don't care.The notion of
welfare being a generous offering to help the most vulnerable among us has been
lost, or distorted so that it is now an entitlement to anyone who wants it.Even total confiscation of every dollar earned by working Americans will
not be enough to fund all the "free stuff" that has been promised by the
liberal Democrats.If not reformed very quickly, Disability payments
and all the other welfare entitlements will totally bankrupt our country,
perhaps even as soon as the end of Obama's second term.All of
this is the result of liberals' class warfare and culture of dependency.
Our experience living in the state of Utah has been that it is quite difficult
to qualify for disability. We've had two children with medical issues.
One finally received disability after two attempts when she was diagnosed with
stage four cancer. I finally talked to someone at the disability office who
explained to me how to fill out the paperwork. Our other child has a learning
disability that has now been effectively treated. Until we had a diagnosed
label for him, he didn't qualify. He doesn't need disability now. I
also know of other people who have needed legal help to qualify. Maybe it is
easier in other states, but in Utah it is difficult to qualify.
We are transforming into a nation of beggars, and wimps.Thank you
liberals for your kindness.
Let's look back at the last 30 years and county which party has been in the
White House the most, and then we will thank the party with the most years in
the White House for this problem.
Well, there's the answer: Let's thank (blame) a political party.
