Just look under the budget outgoing and see how much money is being spent in SSDI. It's fairly substantial and betting that a nice portion is fraud. Claiming disability for a sore neck, sore back, sore knees, or whatever they claim is total BS. Being disabled should mean that you can't ride an 800 pound motorcycle or play 18 holes of golf. Claiming that they don't have the ability to work should actually mean that they are too disabled to do anything. If you are 40 years old and start collecting, it's like getting your social security at that age and as Karl as pointed out, free medicare. Once Obamacare went live, people started realizing that working was for idiots when they could get almost free or free medical from dollar one while the fools that worked had to pay massive premiums for no coverage. If you are single and have an income of $50,000 a year and pay $10k a year in premiums, just do the math. If something happens and you need the insurance, cough up another $5k-10k in deductibles.
It almost seems that the ACA was designed to wipe out small business owners who all have to buy their own coverage. The numbers that Karl quotes of businesses that no longer exist proves the point.
This system is so broken when it benefits the leech class so much. All these programs have destroyed our desire to work, take risks and be productive.
