    The disability program is rife with fraud and stealing money from social security.

    It needs fixing. Badly.

    I personally know 2 able bodied individuals receiving disability benefits.

    It's good to see someone finally has the guts to address it.

    Agreed reform is needed, but the technique of denying funding for everyone is the wrong way to address the problem.

    Got everyone's attention, didn't it?

    Funding was denied for no one. But there would be about a 20% decrease in benefits.

    Seems to me to provide an increased motivation to fix it. History proves that nothing will be done if full funding continues.
