    Are they surprised?

    Judges who hear Social Security disability cases are facing a growing number of violent threats from claimants angry over being denied benefits or frustrated at lengthy delays in processing claims.

    They've created a whole class of "gimme people" and then taken away some of their candy. Gimme people aren't known for being reasonable.

    Either that or they've got Joe Snuffy who's paid in his whole life and watched illegals, lazies, and drug addicts get social security, and now that Joe deserves his, there isn't any.

      Im 66 and living on SSI and I find it outrageous that congress prevented us from a cost of living raise these past 2 years and last year they voted themselves a raise and who would like to bet they get another raise again this year

        They say there is no inflation, so ppl on SSI don't need an increase. That's because they don't do any grocery shopping or fill their own gas tanks.

          I am not on SSI but am on a military medical pension and like dozerwayne did not get a cost of living raise this year '10 and will not get one in '11.
          But yet those in washington will always get theirs!
          I read an article the other day that showed that only 7% of Oblamo's cabinet had ever held any type of regular job not counting government jobs and we are letting those who have never had to live from paycheck to paycheck delegate what we need to live??

            KEEP PASSING THIS AROUND UNTIL EVERY ONE HAS READ IT.....



            Remember, not only did you contribute to Social Security but your

            employer did too. It totaled 15% of your income before taxes. If you

            averaged only $30K over your working life, that's close to $220,500. If

            you calculate the future value of $4,500 per year (yours & your

            employer's contribution) at a simple 5% (less than what the govt. pays on

            the money that it borrows), after 49 years of working you'd have

            $892,919.98.



            If you took out only 3% per year, you'd receive $26,787.60 per year

            and it would last better than 30 years (until you're 95 if you retire at

            age 65) and that's with no interest paid on that final amount on deposit!

            If you bought an annuity and it paid 4% per year, you'd have a lifetime

            income of $2,976.40 per month.



            The folks in Washington have pulled off a bigger Ponzi scheme than

            Bernie Madhoff ever had.



            Entitlement my butt, I paid cash for my social security insurance!!!!

            Just because they borrowed the money, doesn't make my benefits some kind

            of charity or handout!!



            Congressional benefits ---- free healthcare, outrageous retirement

            packages, 67 paid holidays, three weeks paid vacation, unlimited paid

            sick days, now that's welfare, and they have the nerve to call my social

            security retirement entitlements?



            We're "broke" and can't help our own Seniors, Veterans, Orphans,

            Homeless



            In the last months we have provided aid to Haiti ,Chile , and Turkey

            . And now Pakistan...... home of bin Laden. Literally, BILLIONS of

            DOLLARS!!!



            Our retired seniors living on a 'fixed income' receive no aid nor do

            they get any breaks while our government and religious organizations pour

            Hundreds of Billions of $$$$$$'s and tons of food to foreign countries!



            They call Social Security and Medicare an ENTITLEMET even though most

            of us have been paying for it all our working lives and now when it’s

            time for us to collect, the government is running out of money. Why did

            the government borrow from it in the first place? Imagine if the

            *GOVERNMENT* gave 'US' the same support they give to other countries.



            Sad isn't it? 99% of people won't have the guts to forward this.

            I'm one of the 1% -- I just did.

              AKGirl has slammed in a home run on this one....GREAT post! And yes, I will pass it on.. Unfortunately, our incompetent leaders seem to have grown a thick skin when it comes to constructive criticism. Either that or they really don't care about the citizens...

                  And that unless I am mistaken is why we are all here so we don't have to put our lives in the hands of FEMA or any other government institution
