Obama pushed 99 weeks of unemployment as a benefit to those waiting while his recovery took place. The smart people went part time and waited for nothing. Neither did Obama, he shrank the workforce and lowered unemployment. A lot was planned but in a sea of lies nobody can predict accurately. Suddenly all of those people who were to lose benefits before the election, vote Obama to save themselves, discovered disability.
Ten years ago 1 person out of almost every 36 working was collecting disability. Look at today’s numbers. CNS: “A record of 8,733,461 workers took federal disability insurance payments in June 2012, according to the Social Security Administration. That was up from 8,707,185 in May. It also exceeds the entire population of New York City, which according to the Census Bureau’s latest estimate hit 8,244,910 in July 2011.” Today the ratio is 1 in every 19.
Add on spouses and children of disabled workers, subtract even more from our already busted Social Security (Disability Division), and we are funding negatives with negatives and asking you to give wedding or birthday gift donation cards to reelect the person who is promoting it.
