    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.

    The shameful thing is the people that actually need it, they don't get it.

    Congress has two chambers, the dems controlled the House but not the Senate. If Reagan didn't want the bill he could have veto's it and seen if the senate would over ride.

    I stand corrected.

    You are privy to their medical records?

    That doesn't answer my question. It's okay, though - the lack of any answers proves my point.

    No, but I know for a fact they abuse the system.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying there is nobody that deserves disability. Please don't hear that. I'm saying there is a lot of abuse of the system due to loopholes and technicalities.
