    7.4 million were on diability in January 2009

    So 3.5 million have been added to the roles since then. Some in this thread touting its 3% of our population, but in January 2009 it wasn't 3% but more like 2.4%. Now I'm not blaming the loser human in the oval office that I can't stand one bit, for I don't know why we have 3.5 million more enrollies in disability programs today than we did when he took office, but its not disputable that we do.

Did he give people cancer and thus land them on disability when they were too sick to work?

    With all this outrage surely they can point to some policy by the current admin that lead to this. I would wager that the majority of people on disability are in red states. In fact, of the top 5 states for people on disability, they are all southern red states:

    Spouses of disabled workers also got a record average monthly benefit of $308.13 in December, up from a previous high of $304.31 in August. Children of disabled workers also received a record average monthly benefit of $341.42 in December, up from a previous high of $337.13 in May.

    As CNSNews.com reported earlier this month, the number of Americans getting disability benefits now exceeds the entire population of Greece, which is 10,772,967, according to the CIA World Factbook.

    Seriously? I hope this isn't anything for than contrived outrage as this is a non-issue.

    You really need to stay away from these political porn sites. They are just there to stimulate you (your anger) and help you keep it up (your blood pressure)... most of the stuff is either full fantasy or shot with a distorted lens.

    It stands to reason that those drawing disability would be at an all time high: the US population is at an all-time high and we are getting older. The idea that the average benefit is at an all time high also somewhat stands to reason, as costs go up. That is if you really could call a $16.09 increase over a $1,134.34 base a real increase... its less than 1.5%.

    Baby boomers aging into their 50s and early 60s is the problem. You got this huge generation of people that ushered in the obesity epidemic in America as well as just the general decline in fitness in this country that are now getting old enough for all their poor health choices to come how to roost. I am not sure what we do about that though. We can more aggressively go after fraud, but that is probably only going to cut away at the margins of the problem.
