Posted on 07/06/2012 7:01:43 AM PDT by IBD editorial writer
More workers joined the federal government's disability program in June than got new jobs, according to two new government reports, a clear indicator of how bleak the nation's jobs picture is after three full years of economic recovery.

“after three full years of economic recovery.”
This is no recovery...
If Obama was a republican they would report the truth.
Building the “base”
97% of these will vote Democrat for the rest of their lives.
This is by design. There is no expiration date for disability. The Commies have them for life.
Far too many times “Going on Disability” means “I’m fat and walking bores me”.
It’s all part of the plan. Anyone collecting disability is automatically a Democrat for life. Likewise for most Government free stuff, including amnesties. And if you don’t go along, you are deemed racist and mean.
The Republicans who support these programs are contributing to the suicide of their party and the country.
Six and a half million Americans looking for work and only eighty thousand found a job last month. Is this the recovery our incredible shrinking President keeps bragging about? Is this what he means when he says the private sector is doing fine? Actually, I think this is what he meant by fundamentally transforming America.
There are a lot of people working right now who could be on disability, but they're good citizens and choose to keep working rather than steal from their fellow man. Those who got laid off sign up for disability because it's limitless, where unemployment is suppose to be temporary. Without jobs, they probably feel it's the only way they can survive.
A lot of people are hurting right now because of Washington, but Oboma refuses to admit he's made a lot of serious mistakes, and refuses to change his course to repair them.
Proof that killing the economy was a goal of this administration.
First unemployment insurance, now disability-the Federal government is officially “doing more” for the unemployed than the private sector is able to do.
A little known fact: After two years on disability you are eligible for Medicare. Small wonder Medicare is broke.
I have two relatives that made this move. They are in that age group where they couldn’t land a job, and had legitimate reasons to go with disability. Both are strong Republicans, and vigilantly anti-Obama. They are pissed to be forced into this situation at a time in their lives where they would prefer to work..and more worked up than most of us. Let’s hope there are more of those.
It used to be that the lawyers around here ran adverts on tv ambulance chasing car wrecks.
Now they’re all looking for Social Security disability clients.
“You’ve paid into the system all your working life, now it’s time to collect the benefits you deserve”
“No fees until your case is resolved”
$1200+ per month, tax free, for life.
Not true! Nancy Pelosi has told me that Obama is creating 8 million jobs a month!
It is those SOB’s that are making it a 3 year process for my wife who really is disabled.
Saul Alinski (Obomas activist teacher), saw the middle class as the enemy. They had the political numbers, and they had the political cash. They couldn't be outright destroyed, so the plan was to "absorb" them.
If the left could overload the welfare system enough, it would impoverish the middle class until they, too, were on the public dole, and the left would be in power for life.
This economy is no accident. The housing crash was manufactured. This is why Oboma is wasting tax dollars like a screaming banshee and refusing to do anything to correct it. In fact, he's working over time to make sure it gets worse. People are collecting handouts like never before. The Marxist Alinski plan, so well known to Oboma, is working - for now.
"Lest we forget at least an over the shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins - or which is which), the very first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom - Lucifer.
it keeps the unemployment numbers lower for Obama.
Disability is e biggest scam perpetrated in the history of civilization. I know tons of people on disability. There is not a one who cannot work.
May I as what you consider a legitimate disability?
