Well, on to the serious stuff...actually in response to your Washington Post link. I think the problem is that while SS may not be a very good option...people are VERY reluctant to make change of any sort. And they are particularly reluctant when it involves a program which has, in the past, provided the basic foundation supporting retirement for many seniors. We all know something must be done, but there is great reluctance to give up what has served many people well over the years. People are very uncomfortable with change, and I think that is what republicans are discovering when they go back home and listen to their constituents. I'm not saying that is a good thing...but it IS a powerful thing.

Repeat after me...repeat after me...repeat after me.....
Hey, zingers cross all political boundaries. You have to take advantage whenever the opportunity arises.

Unfortunately, making the tough but correct decisions is what leaders are supposed to do. We got sick and tired of being run down the socialism path by the Demos so we gave the Republicans the gauntlet. What have they done? Run up the two or three largest budget increases in history, opened our boarders to anyone who wants to come across, given Ted Kennedy responsibility for drafting the teacher's union pacification bill, cowed to any and every challenge the Domos throw up (I'm sure THEY are even disappointed how easy their challenges crush the Republicans. Anyone would want a little more spirited fight than that).

My solution for the Bush appointment loggerhead; let John Kerry nominate cabinet members and judges - everyone would vote for them and the problem would disappear. Look how easily that pure Marxist Ruth Bader Ginsburgh got approved for the Supremes. Then the Republicans would be better spoken of in the NY Times which is, after all, their goal in life.

If Hillary will say the right words about closing the boarders, I'll probably vote for her. Sure she would be lying but at lest she would say the right things! And why not have a real true to life Marxist as president instead of an imitation?

Finally at my age, I will get a WHOLE BUNCH of freebies that you young'uns will have to pay for so what could be better!! Unearned income like my 401K and like Ted Kennedy relies on will be protected 'cause that is mainly what congressmen get and they are too smart to screw themselves. Taxes on earned imcome will go up to 80% to 90% to pay for my benefits but I will be retired!!

But definitely 6 months for DI. And pregnancy doesn't qualify. I'm not sure where you are getting your info Beenaway but if you have links or sources for any of the above I'd sure be interested in seeing who is putting out that mis-information.

Oh, and you can not collect disability for being pregnant.

W/C Disablilty is 6 weeks. I thought you were talking about disability in general. Sorry. You CAN collect W/C for pregancy from the time the Doc pulls you, up until he releases you back to work. At least in NY.

The reason W/C is mentioned, is that is the first avenue. Then settlement/determination, then it transfers to SSDI, until retirement age,which transfers to SSI(Old Age)

Thanks for the clarification Beenaway. I had an idea that might be what you were talking about. For the sake of clarity let's try to to make a distinction in future posts differentiating between WC and SSDI...I just hate to see one program getting tarred for the abuses of another program altogether.
