So if the current US population as provided by the US census bureau

311,591,917

11,000,000 on disability

Thats 3.55% of the population is on disability.  Doesnt sound bad till you see that 23.5% of the population (73,224,100) is under 18 years old. so 238,367,817 is the population of people over 18 and includes people over 65 years old that could work and 4.6% collect disability.

I wonder how much of those people are truely hurt.

Look at the numbers historically over time.  My memory is that disability doubled at the time that something was cut (maybe welfare).  I think it was bush or Clinton era.

There are a number of people who legitametly are disabled, and it's sad to see the freeloaders taking advantage.

It is the poeple that take advantage of the system that bothers me.  Systems have been implemented to help those that truely need help and I can support that, it is the ones that abuse it that bothers me.

welfare/food stamps gets me fired up a lot more.  I love standing in line to pay for groceries watching some lady with manicured nails talking on her iPhone while buying a carton of cigarettes and using food stamps to buy her groceries (this no crap happened about a month ago at a Walmart).  People either have zero personal pride or just cannot understand prioritizing their expenses.  There is obviously a place for such a system to allow someone to rebound (think James Braddock/Cinderella Man) but the abuse these days seems way too prevalent.

This clip about sums up the issues with food stamps.

I got some useless spam email a little while back that while I am sure the source of the quotations and the other associated facts were wrong, this one passage does make you think:
 "A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse over loose fiscal policy, (which is) always followed by a dictatorship."
