Politics and Social Security Disability?

Here is a link to one writer who reports on Social Security news. It appears that some claims are being processed faster by the Social Security Administration if they hit the newspapers or have much media attention. He believes this may be political in nature. In the past he relates this was not the case. He suspects such cases are being expedited to avoid further bad publicity during an election year. If true it is another reminder to all of us to look beyond the lip service and the posturing and get to the truth. In my mind there is absolutely no doubt that claimants have languished under an agency that has been underfunded and undermanned by the current administration. No human being should have to wait more then 6 months for a hearing but they do often wait over a year. In any event click here for the article.
