No English? No problem! A little known Social Security policy considers a person’s ability to learn English when determining disability eligibility.

Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) sent a letter to Acting Commissioner of the Social Security Administration Carolyn Colvin last week to express concerns about a disability policy that may fast-track Americans who can’t speak English.

The policy allows people to qualify for benefits more quickly if “they are incapable of communicating in English.” […]

Every day comes a new betrayal of Americans by the people who are supposed to be serving America.

Disability is the new welfare.

Disability is also what folks turn to when their unemployment benefit runs out.

“Only TWO more days until it is May Fifth!”

It is?

In celebration of this historic day, I will jump over my neighbor’s fence and demand he pay for my gas, clothes, healthcare etc and speak to him in a foreign language!

Why not declare Cinco de Mayo burn a Mexican flag day? Hey, the SCOTUS ruled long ago that flag burning is absolutely a form of protected speech, it’s the law of the land.

They appear to have altered the URL. That’s odd. It’s now in a format that can’t be accessed from this website.

Try accessing it from the Google search.

Disability fraud is also theft from others’ retirement livelihood.

I watched the video but still am not sure I understand this. Are the people who apply for disability American citizens who say they cannot speak English and as a result get fast-tracked? Or is something else going on?

Disability Payment is the ONLY part of Social Security that is completely STABLE.

I use that as to we never hear of Welfare or Food Stamp money being in danger.

The only money that is in ‘danger’ is to those that have actually paid into the system or have worked and had ‘stolen’ from them by a Government that claimed it was going to ‘return’ it to you, many years later.

I would imagine the % of WORKING AMERICANS that claim and collect SS Disability - is very low in comparison to the ‘mystery’ hurts and plain fraud. Lots of Lawyers pay TV time encouraging people to apply - and if you are having problems - contact them as they are professionals...- Guess they means professional scammers.

Funny how they can be collecting for years because of a bad back and manage to spit out 3 or 4 kids - that get in the system - while drawing money for the bad back.

Also ‘strange’ that Workmens Comp may turn them down but Social Security Disability picks them up....

Maybe the ‘Unions’ should be handling SS?????
Then again, while they may knock the slackers off the rolls, we know where the ‘saved’ money will go....

Perhaps a policy that goes back to the Jorge W Bush administration?
