“Im sure there are some but I dont think its as rampant as some believe.”
Yes, yes it is. I personally know many that are on disability for no reason at all. One simply refuses to grow up and claims she has “emotional distress” becaus life “is just too hard”. Another claims her “wrist hurts” from being a bartender for 20 years. Both are on 100% disability.
There is a massive attempt to get as many on government welfare as possible; any and all welfare. The Democrats know that each is a Dem voter as when applying for benefits the propaganda doesn’t stop: “You know, it’s a good thing Obama is in the Whitehosue, Bush and the Republicans were trying to cut this program”, “Good thing a Democrat got this program funded. Bush and the Republicans were trying to cut this program.”
I know the dems want more on the government teat. But I don’t believe people are being approved for that reason. Otherwise everyone would be approved. I think I read somewhare that 90% of applicants are turned down on the first applications. And of those who appeal, only 75% will be approved and that’s with an attorney. And these stats are from a year or so. The percentages of those rejected are much higher today.
