I have to go to the store at the moment. But to begin with I think everyone needs to come to an agreement on what a disability is. The author of the OP doesn't know and that is obvious.

Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.” ― George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman
There is a place for disability inn our system but it is DEFINITELY being abused.
All in all I think the article highlights some really important issues though the scope of the problem extends well beyond just disability.
Well, that's the liberal/progressive/socialist plan isn't it.Our health care system is defunct...
Been to a store lately, none of the food is "cheap"....anymore.it's cheaper to buy junk food than real food thanks to subsidies...
Minimum wage laws keep wages artificially low.and with unions disappearing and proposals to slash minimum wage people have to work longer hours for the privilege of remaining poor.
How cliche....Another corporate hater...You call it the gravy train, I call it the necessary outcome of a corporate slavery mentality.
Wait, wait....So we get rid of corporations, and all the jobs they create, and you're worried about "outsourcing", which btw, is caused primarily due to the over taxation, and burdensome regulation structure put in place by progressives that think that they are doing something noble by driving those jobs away?Just keep outsourcing the jobs and destroying worker rights, and more and more people will keep turning to the government tit.
Too bad the progressive utopia you dream of never works in practical application.But yeah... keep blaming the disenfranchised for being disenfranchised. In the land of America, ignorance is strength, and slavery is freedom.
Liberté. Égalité. Fraternité.
Even more disheartening is when the actually disabled can't get disability because of the paranoia. The process is distorted and corrupted so some are milking it and some are left helpless.
Sorry, no links. I am personally following the case of one of my "Cat Ladies" who is genuinely disabled and has been filing and re-filing applications for at least 2 years. But in San Francisco, I met a bunch of junkies who were on disability and were only disable because they were junkies.
