Senator Warren Says the GOP is Inventing a Social Security Crisis

Wow, that was fast. On the first day of the new Republican-controleld Congress, an attack was made on disabled Americans.

Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren put it this way — GOP lawmakers are “inventing a Social Security crisis.”

The method is a bit arcane, but basically the Republicans have said that the routine transfers of funds from the Social Security retirement system to the Social Security disability system will now have strings attached. The end result, and probably the intention, is that there will be less money available for the disabled. That means either fewer Americans will receive benefits, or the benefits disabled Americans do receive will be reduced.

Neither of these is acceptable. With very few exceptions everyone who receives disability benefits is terribly disabled — unable to get and keep any job available anywhere. That’s the Social Security definition of disability. To reduce benefits to the disabled or to tell other disabled citizens there’s no money for you is just plain mean.

Pay attention to this rule change. It could be hugely important to you or someone you love.

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
