More Americans Have Gone on Disability than Gotten Jobs in the Obama “Recovery”

In case you haven’t seen this statistic yet, nothing exemplifies the horrific three years of Obama’s fake “recovery” more than the fact that since June 2009, 2.6 million jobs have been created in America (mostly temp positions or cashiers at McDonald’s and Wal-Mart), while 3.1 million have signed up for disability benefits.  Hey, if we judge an economy based on growth in ponzi schemes and poverty, Obama is without a doubt the best President in U.S. history.

Key Quotes from the Investor’s Business Daily article:
The disability ranks have outpaced job growth throughout President Obama’s recovery. While the economy has created 2.6 million jobs since June 2009, fully 3.1 million workers signed up for disability benefits.

In other words, the number of new disability enrollees has climbed 19% faster than the number of jobs created during the sluggish recovery.

And the disability ranks will continue to swell. In just the last month, almost 275,000 put in applications for disability benefits. Experts say that more people try to get on disability when jobs are scarce, and changes to eligibility rules enacted back in 1984 have made it far easier to qualify.

One thought on “More Americans Have Gone on Disability than Gotten Jobs in the Obama “Recovery”

  1. Yes, I was fired for “disability” over seven years ago after a heinous assault in the hospital. If you remember Obama promised that there would be jobs for the disabled. But no, I have an unpayable debt to the “health” insurance company, I can’t find a lawyer with half a brain, I’ve been verbally assaulted by my brother, my daughter won’t talk to me (except to try to find ways to trash my disabled-hand-made home), I can’t find a CPA has a clue on how to deal with disability laws, I’m terrified by the Polizi. The frackin’ companies are now selling fire insurance, since they’ve trashed my land with their air pollution.
    Unfortunately, there’s much, much more money for the politicians and the terrorist doctors than for their victims.
    I’d like to find a financial suggestion. ANYTHING!
