Skip to comments.Senator: Non-English Speakers Qualify for Disability Benefits More Quickly
Posted on 05/03/2014 6:36:26 AM PDT by Whenifhow
The inability to speak English is now considered a determining factor to receive federal disability benefits.
Ranking Member of the Senate Budget Committee Jeff Sessions (R., Ala.) sent a letter obtained exclusively by the Free Beacon to Acting Commissioner of the Social Security Administration Carolyn Colvin on Thursday, raising concerns regarding revelations that individuals who cannot speak English are fast-tracked for disability approval.
I write to express my concerns about the expanding number of individuals now qualified for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), and to raise a specific issue, the basis for many of these individuals disability classification, where the inability to speak English is a determinative factor, Sessions said.

More Democrat vote buying through creation of a dependent class. This fits right in with the agenda.
Go to any local DSS office. Non-English speakers are catered to with the VIP treatment.
There are commercials from lawyers’ groups all day long on daytime TV. You know, daytime when those entitlement leeches wake up around noon (it upsets them any earlier than that) and turn on the tube before heading out to Walmart or wherever to get their junk food on their EBT cards?
These lawyers teach them and urge them to apply for SS disability and help them get it. The Cochran Firm is one of the most prominent.
My guess is that the government has hired untold numbers of Spanish speaking employees whose job it is to process only non-English applications. Probably lots of other language employees to who don’t have as much to do and can process the applications more quickly.
Last time I did any extensive searching on SSA.gov and related sites, I did some number crunching and realized that over 25% of SSA expenditures were for SSDI and SSI. (They don’t fund SSI, but they administer the process. SSI is for those who don’t qualify for SSDI, SS payments because they haven’t worked enough to qualify. In other words, SSI is just another in a long line of names/programs for WELFARE.)
This was at the beginning of Obama’s first term and my best bet is this number is probably up to 30% or maybe even higher.
Read, write, and speak English is required for US citizenship. Why aren’t they deported?
Sessions appears to be the only one in Washington that has a clue. I wish he was president.
I generally like Sessions. On the whole, he’s been a good steward I think, but I can recall a couple of times he’s done some pretty squirrely stuff.
Because the US State Department and Immigration agencies are not working in our interests. They are working to give the Democrat party an inexhaustible supply of new Democrat voters.
Jeff Sessions has done a great job on immigration.
No English? No Problem! - Senator: Disability Enrollees Fast Tracked - Entitlement Nation - F&F
The American people have no problem with this; they have voted for these policies for many years.
Thanks for the heads-up.
Vote-crazed Obama ordered the payments, no doubt-—this loony tune has done everything to suck-up for votes except fellate a latino on Capitol Hill.
Deportations are way down under Obama. Almost no internal enforcement going on..... and vote-crazed Obama went on latino TV whining about "underdeserved" latinos and is conniving to get them enrolled.
INCONVENIENT FACTOID Latinos do not need to pay for O/Care---they can get free healthcare any frickin' time they want it.
Obama's "latino enrollment" scam is a ruse to get votes by putting illegals into O/Care. NOTE WELL healthcare.gov is also a voter registration site. Tricky Democrats can easily plug in enrollees into their voter rolls.....and count them as votes on election day.
Here's how the tricky Dems work the enrollment/voter scam: O/Care's Oregon state exchange "accidentally" enrolled 4000 illegals
PASS THE WORD: This is a scam. Enrolling illegals was no accident. Obamacare web sites are also setup to accept voter registrations.
In Oregon vote-crazed Dems racked up 4000 votes (that we know of) to help them survive looming 2014 midterms).
CONTACT Oregon Secretary of State

BOOKMARK THIS Each state's Secretary of State is required to check into all cases of reported voter fraud. Course a Dem won't. But many states have Repub Secy's of State. They should be notified about illegals registering via O/Care.....and fraudulently plugged into Democrat voter rolls.
