The abuse of SS disability on that island needs a hard look.

The number of people in PR getting checks is amazing. And usually there is no apparent reason.

Sounds like an obvious local corruption problem.

The answer is simple.... they have some very good lawyers.

Unstated was the amount of the total take that goes to lawyers.

I can’t imagine that Puerto Ricans are that much more accident-prone than the mainland.

Wow.

Ya know, I had a bad case of pneumonia about 2 years ago. I have a brand new, shiny set of pneumonia scars in my lungs, asthma and sleep apnea.

All my doctoring has been done at the VA hospital, including that bout of pneumonia. So the US Govt knows more than anyone in the world about the state of my health.

And it STILL took me over 6 months and half a dozen doctor's scrutiny's to get SSDI. It's like the US govt didn't believe the US govt on the status of my lungs.

Then to top it off, Congress passed a law, mandating that anyone that's disabled and tries to get on the program, has to wait 6 months before any payments start. Suppose Congress-demons have to wait 6 months before they can start to collect their salaries? Yeah, sure. MOre of their do as I say, don't do as I do.

How someone can get on the program "easily" is beyond me.

But then again, I'm a white,Christian male so I don't count.
