    Maybe you need to tell that to the state of Florida.
    They have special lciences for hunting or fishing for the disabled.
    When it comes to matters of reproduce health, Politicians and the religious dogma of another faith should never interfere with religious liberty of an individual or her faith.

    I agree with Maggie it is cheaper to keep them on a small stipend and open the remaining jobs we have here in this country to folks who want them, and are eager to work.

    Oh a few questions... this man you say took disability as an early retirement... what do you call a decent early retirement? What state is this? how many other disability recipients have everything paid for?
    The Democrats controlled Congress in 1984 and had been in control for 40 years.

For the United States, this is an expensive proposition. The Social Security Administration spent $137 billion on disability last year; Medicare costs for this group tack on another $80 billion, since folks on disability automatically qualify for Medicare.

    I talk to people everyday in my line of work that get disability that have no business getting it.
    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

    Interesting that nobody has answered my question about how much is given to 'scammers' in comparison to how much is spent on corporate welfare or invading other countries...
    We spent 11 trillion dollars on the dependent class in the past 40 odd years.
