It IS welfare for those who haven't paid a DIME into it. Why do children who are on ADD/ADHD get SSI for a learning disability? IMO, They are NOT disabled, just have to work a bit more than others. You should take exception to this article, as you have worked and paid in. Have no problem helping people such as yourself who are truly disabled, but I DO NOT like the fact that children get SSI just for merely being on medications.
