Re: Disability - Unfit for Work

This disability topic has been discussed quite a few times actually.  It is a rapidly growing problem as people graduate from unemployment benefits to discovering they are permanently disabled.  This program is overrun with abuse and fraud.  Those of us on the right haven't missed it at all.  It took NPR news to report it so that you would actually finally listen.  I agree that NPR does seem at times, not all the time, to report the news, not manipulate it to prove a position.

No room for sequester though. That would destroy the economy. And I don't think many care about NPR, they just don't care for the government to fund the media, you know, the conflict of interest thing.
