    Let's not phrase this next piece as a question, let's just state it. You do not know how disability is an individualized concept and that there are many categories of disability which qualify for SSDI, and you do not understand that each category impacts groups of people differently.
    person, not people. I suggested a week of horseback riding and traveling 1200 miles to do it would allow a person to work.

    You fail to recognize that people are milking a system that was designed for people that really can't get by without it.

    Yeah, lazy-arsed disabled people, they should get up and work instead of sitting around drooling in wheelchairs.

    But you do not know that, do you? No, you don't. You're presuming without adequate knowledge about that individual.

    Next, you just dodged most of your posts in the thread that were insulting. Good job trying to back away from taking responsibility.

    They could have psychosis, agoraphobia, an intellectual disability, Autism, chromosomal disorders. Any of a myriad of disabilities that allow them to ride a horse, but would make it incredibly difficult to hold down a job. Your attitude is that people with disabilities shouldn't be able to enjoy life, and any time they do, they must not have a disability.

    You fail to recognize that people are milking a system that was designed for people that really can't get by without it.
    Tucker pointed out earlier in this thread, people smart enough to milk the system will milk the system no matter what you do, it's people with disabilities that will be affected by any restrictions or cuts.

    Since you are debating with dishonestly in your posts, I will be ignoring you going forward. Good day.

    That's why I don't trust the average American citizen to make that call, and thankfully, they don't. Most Americans have a lackluster understanding of disability.

    multiple vacations with 2400 miles of driving round trip would allow anyone to work. Liberal minded people think 40% of this country can support 60% that want to stay at home, we can't.

    Cutting fraud out of any program only makes it better for the people that deserve to be on it. Maybe you think we should deregulate the banking industry again so the people that were doing well can continue to do well at the expense of others?
