With all this election-year talk of “victims” and “47 percentages,” many Americans are understandably concerned about the state of Social Security and their continued eligibility for benefits. Last month, the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, which is a nonpartisan policy group working on policy and public programs that affect Americans in low and moderate income groups, released a report that supported the continuance of Social Security benefits.
In the report, the Central Budget and Policy Priorities says that the Social Security Disability Insurance program provides very vital and important benefits to workers, who have no other way of earning an income after they suffer disabilities or medical impairment.
The Center for Budget and Policy Priorities report takes aim at those critics of Social Security who say that spending on Social Security is out of control. The report clearly speaks out against those allegations, saying that much of the rise in federal disability payments is a result of demographic factors.
