It means unmanagable pain and those people should get it
It means one might get a chance to retire early and play
It is another way to fleece taxpayers and no one should get it
who cares, it is unmanagable
who cares, it is insignificant expenditure for the US
It should be completely overhauled, re-written, and inspected for cheaters
an impairment that causes a substantial limitation on a major life function
of course some jobs can be done with such limitations. a software designer can work from a wheelchair
a police officer or firefighter-not so much. You can still be considered disabled under federal law even if your disability has no impact on your job
Many foreign women and men get the opportunity to come to this country for a better life. In some cases they are offered internships to repay the debt for helping them come here and it is all legit.
In other cases young women and men are forced into prostitution becoming victims themselves. Should we overlook this practice because many of the people that come are legit?
The problem is that poor people cannot get jobs where they sit down. Everything's fine for people like me (I'm a software developer), but if you're poor, you have to stand up. There is not a single job where you don't have to, and that will kill anyone's back if done for 8 hours per day, every day, without even considering wheelchairs. Workers at walmart need to be given stools, and getting a proper education needs to be cheaper. College tuition has skyrocketed, and we're talking about state-owned schools, which are taking their huge endowments and paying it to their professor ameritouses (as opposed to the regular old professors) and charging students for the rest.
If I were king, I would eliminate disability. In its place, I would give similar benefits to anyone who wanted them. No disability required. Disability lawyers out of business overnight. No more stories of legitimate disabled people being denied for years. No fraud, because fraud isn't possible when there's no requirements to be met. Anyone who wanted to live on more than the low level of subsistence we provide the disabled would still have reason to acquire a job.
