What's the Current GOP manufactured debt Crisis? Social Security Reform

OK, so this is Post-Election material, not specific to campaign methods (or failures thereof), just looking at the immediate priorities since the GOP has taken control of both houses.

What are these "Immediate Priorities"? Those of us paying attention have seen legislative action proposed for, among other things, the TransCanadian pipeline (no surprise there), the TPP, the so-called "Trans Pacific Partnership agreement", and Social Security Reform measures.

But let's take a look at SSDI, shall we? GOP "Back Door" reforms currently threaten renewal of funding for those disability payments.

Setting aside the TPP for another time

Currently, without legislative changes there will be a scheduled 20% reduction in Disability payments, yet another feather in the cap of Conservative Doctrine. Thanks GOP.
