Disability More Likely Than Employment
Under President FoodStamp eligibility standards for Social Security Disability have, like most other standards in his administration, declined to the point that in June more people went on disability than found employment. Evidently one has a better chance of becoming disabled than finding a job in the Obama economy. No kidding. It's provable. In June 80,000 people found jobs but 85,000 workers left the workforce entirely to enroll in the Social Security Disability Insurance program, according to the Social Security Administration. Cutting through Obama's funny math and "jobs created or saved" since the bottom of the recession in 2009 the economy has generated just 2.6 million jobs but 3.1 million workers signed up for disability benefits. Now that's change we can believe in!
