As Profit Shares Hit New Highs, Washington Focuses on Abuse of Disability
"We could be talking about these or other measures to bring corporate profits back down to more normal levels. But the VSP don't want the public discussing such issues. They want us to be arguing about how to keep sick, injured, and unemployed workers from collecting $1,100 a month in disability insurance. You can count on seeing many more pieces on disability insurance in the news in coming months."
Because, of course, it's so wonderful to live below the poverty level that people are happy to give up a decent job (because you don't get $1100 if you've only been earning minimum wage) to scrape by the rest of your life. But that logic can't be considered by those who spread the myth that it's easy to defraud Disability.
