Attacks on Social Security Disability Are Not New

This blog has reported frequently on the congressional majority's intention to gut the Social Security Disability(SSD) program. However, one of the lesser-known stories about efforts to reduce or eliminate SSD is the history of these efforts. It turns out that targeting SSD is not new, and that it has been going on since the presidency of Ronald Reagan.

Social Security Disability: A Political Minefield

In a previous blog, we outlined the new rules in the House of Representatives that would limit Congressional ability to shift money from Social Security retirement benefits to Social Security disability (SSD) benefits. This is something Congress has done many times before to address temporary budget shortfalls. The new rule will make this more difficult and could result in a decrease of up to 19 percent in SSD benefit payments after 2016.
