Obama’s America: Even Convicts are Going on Disability

Everyone is going on disability these days. It’s the easiest job you can find. At this rate, pretty soon the entire country will be on disability and it’ll be fine as long as the 1 percent do their part.

Why shouldn’t cons go on disability. It makes sense. They have a lot of trouble finding jobs in prison [2]and they are experienced at running cons.

The Social Security Administration (SSA) gave more than $1 million in improper disability benefits to 440 prisoners, according to the inspector general.

The Inspector General for the SSA (IG) based its report on a sample of 100 beneficiaries, and found that one-fourth had improperly received disability while they were incarcerated.

No worries. What’s one-fourth between Obama voters?

Roughly 317 prisoners received $879,000 in disability insurance, and 123 more were paid $143,000 despite the SSA having suspended their benefits. A total of $1,022,000 erroneous payments were made.

One man was able to collect $22,056 in disability benefits while he was imprisoned in Staten Island, N.Y.

I blame the Republicans for this. Why shouldn’t that man get the disability benefits he’s entitled to from his purse snatching accident? How is he supposed to earn a living with tennis elbow?

This is America. This is America on Obama.
