News, Just A Teaser

I am delaying my usual Monday summary of disability-related news stories until tomorrow (Tuesday). However, I do want to share two news stories about the same topic … a new projection that Social Security's Disability Trust Fund will run out in 2016. I'll have more to say about this, and you can also read some past blog posts that touch on the subject here, here, and here.

My short take is that the problem is somewhat different than how it is portrayed, and that we need to start now to make our case that helping people with disabilities by giving them money is good for us, and for the country. It might even be worth a slightly higher portion of our GDP than we spend now.
