Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Response to TouchOfGray (Reply #25)

Sat Jul 7, 2012, 02:37 AM

52. This is the latest RW meme. Bill O'Reilly ranted about it on his show last night.

He suggested, in O'Reilly's special way, that these disability enrollees are scamming the system.

Of course, no discussion was offered regarding the fact that we have an aging workforce, and the fact that the ACA has not kicked in yet, so chronic medical problems for which people cannot get treatment in ERs, like back pain and diabetes, are rendering them disabled. And when there are no jobs to be had even when you are able-bodied, enrolling in the SSDI program is the only way these folks can survive.
