Rand Paul: Disability Insurance Wasted On People With Anxiety And Back Pain


Rand’s comment comes as congressional Republicans are poised to push reforms to the Social Security Disability Insurance program, the little brother of the much larger Social Security retirement insurance program. Disability benefits have been a longstanding target of GOP criticism…

“What I tell people is, if you look like me and you hop out of your truck, you shouldn’t be getting your disability check. Over half of the people on disability are either anxious or their back hurts. Join the club,” he added. “Who doesn’t get up a little anxious for work every day and their back hurts. Everybody over 40 has a little back pain.”

Who, exactly, is Mr. Paul preaching to?

Oh, rich people in New Hampshire.
