The trustees of the Social Security Administration have issued a new report that mentions the possibility of reducing disability payments to disabled Americans as soon as 2016.  This prediction should mobilize people currently on disability and those who support our nation’s disability program to write our elected officials in Washington to let them know the disability program is not the place the government should make the first cuts!

Here’s the article:

Social Security Disability Recipients to Take 21-percent Cut

“Beneficiaries of the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) program can expect to see their checks cut to 79 percent by 2016, according to the program’s trustees. by Bob Adelmann.”

An injured American worker on disability benefits makes on average a little over $1,000 a month.  How can anyone even consider such massive cuts to the poor & disabled when there are millionaires & billionaires paying less tax than the working middle class?  Can you tell I’m a little frustrated here.

If you agree that we should NOT be reducing disability benefits forward this article on to a friend, or let us know in the comments!
