Well, duh. You get more of what you subsidize. If you subsidize “disability,” everyone has one.
Not EVERYONE who gets SSI is a cheat, liar, lazy, or a fraud.
I have a 9-year-old daughter who has a developmental delay. She can’t talk, isn’t potty-traind (Lord knows, we’ve tried), and it’s not likely that she will ever get better. We get an SSI check for her and her upkeep.
I guaran-damn-tee you I am a hard-working individual who is quite thankful that we receive this small assistance. it sickens me to no end when I read about those who abuse the system because it makes it that much harder on those of us who do not. Believe me...no one wants to see the system cleaned up more than I do.
