The number of Americans receiving disability benefits continues to exceed the populations of Greece, Tunisia and Portugal, the highest number ever.  Over 11 million American are now receiving disability payments, almost the population of Cuba. Sure, many of those receiving tax dollars every month deserve to be helped through tough times, but the staggering increase in ‘disabled’ Americans needs to be addressed one way or another.  More 5.9 million people have been added to disability rosters since President Obama took office, so either there are some serious problem in this country with dangerous work conditions or fraud is running rampant.  Seeing as disability payments are a $128.9 billion annual business, which seems more likely?
