There is an interesting read on CBS News "Disabled And Waiting".
Disabled And Waiting, CBS News Investigation: Backlog In Disability Benefits System Leaves Thousands Of Vulnerable Americans Stranded - CBS News
A paragraph from the article
Overall, two out of every three people who apply for federal disability benefits are rejected by a government agency that critics say is out of date, underfunded, and incapable of serving the exploding number of disabled Americans. Waiting times for a hearing in some cities are more than three years.
As a taxpayer and someone that has contributed to Social Security I find this report disturbing. Let's hope that members of both parties address this problem and assist and get benefits to the disabled in their time of need.
With the problems that OUR TROOPS and OUR VETERANS are having with recieving proper medical care, proper ratings and compensation I guess this should not surprise many Americans. The system is broken and it needs to be fixed.
