You are wrong. I have a family member who,has endured five different cancers, a blood clotting disorder, a brain aneurysm and much more. This individual (after working and paying the maximum into social security every year for thirty years) fought a two year battle before receiving approval for social security disability. And the disability payment is much less than the person earned while employed but their current health issues preclude them from working so they have no choice but to collect on the program they PAID INTO, however, their income has dropped from six figures to poverty level. Often, it is not a choice and certainly no bargain for those who are truly disabled. You all need to stop making assumptions about a "free ride"
