I, too, know some (plural, not an isolated case) of these people.<quoted text>notice the talk about cutting entitlements has so far been limited to those who actually paid into social security having their increases recalculated. how about instead we go back to not allowing mood swings as a reason to collect thousands a month in SS Disability for the rest of your life? or if you your knee hurts and you can no longer climb a ladder, you retrain and get a desk job? the irony of it all is my company has held job fairs for people with disabilities--blind people, people w/MS--you name it and these people once hired struggle to get to work every day and contribute to society.

It's time to split the Republican Party. Let the Democrats wearing a Republican costume join the party they belong to anyway.

It's that simple.
