New Record: 1 Out of Every 13 'Workers' Collecting Disability

During President Barack Obama’s first term, the number of Americans collecting federal disability insurance increased by 1,385,418 to a record 8,827,795.

As a result, there is now one person collecting disability in this county for every 13 people working full-time. Forty-two years ago, in December 1968, there were 51 people working full-time in this country for each person collecting disability.

In January 2009, the month Obama was inaugurated, there were 7,442,377 Americans collecting federal disability insurance, according to the Social Security Administration. By December 2012, the latest month reported, there were 8,827,795 collecting disability, an increase of 1,385,418. With 115,868,000 people working full-time in December, according the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there was 1 person collecting disability for every 13 people working full-time.

    When I went for my disability claim I was in a medical office that did only disability claims. I had my walker(spinal injury) and was the only one in a room of over 20 that had any kind of apparent injury. The rest were black(I know call me a racist) and had nothing visible wrong with them. The only conclusion I could reach was they must be suffering from not getting enough food stamps

    Yeah, right, I think the numbers are fudged again just like the unemployment numbers. When Ovomit said he was going to create jobs he forgot to tell us they would be outside the USA. Folks, WAKE UP!! He has got to go and go now. Obama thinks his little SS Storm Troopers and hollow point ammo can keep the American people in check. When we win I can visualize him hanging upside down in the square just like Musolini.

  5. I am on disability & I can NOT get a good job anywhere.

    This is why it would be a very good idea to kill obama NOW and euthanize all of the deadbeats on disability.
