  •  and the rumblings are already starting (9+ / 0-)

    to go after this too; "too many people on disability" the whole NPR thing last week...it's coming, this is how they started in on the public employee pensions a few years back, laying the groundwork through NPR pieces and such, and a few years later we are having our pensions cut by the Walkers and Crhsities of the world. Now they are going after disability.

    •  Absolutely correct. NPR is absolutely disgusting. (4+ / 0-)

      They have been playing pieces of "too many people on disability" for a couple of weeks. They do it all day long. On the weekends they have hour long attacks on disability. NPR is exactly like fox w/o any attempts at sick humor.

      They're saying since welfare has been minimized and unemployment is high the only recourse people have is to go to a doctor and get themselves on disability in order to survive.  Then they interviewed companies that get paid to get people on disability and have some disembodied voice chortles how easy it is and how they (the company) gets paid fourteen hundred dollars for every person they get off of welfare and onto SSDI. This company was explaining  how the states love it when they can get someone off the state rolls and onto the fed rolls.

      NPR is now a wholly owned corporate troll org. It makes me very sad to think what it used to be before Bush's sociopaths took over and how it is now just a corporate megaphone. And worse, all those little stupids who call in and just fawn over how much they love NPR. (Diane Rehm is slimy, especially when she discusses anything w/her guests being all koch bros owned outfits, Cato, Heritage foundation AEI and she agrees w/them all while cutting off callers who challenge them.)
