It just doesn't make sense.

I found this article in Sunday's "Palladium-Item" newspaper from Richmond, Indiana. It is a good answer to a question that I hear all the time:

Question from Cambridge City: "How do people get on Social Security disability? My son has Multiple Sclerosis and hasn't worked for a year. His medicine runs around $1,000 to $1,500 a month.

"His wife is laid off and lost her medical card.

"I know several who are on disability and work every day or play golf. Another man had a stroke and couldn't work and it took him five years to get on it.

"It just doesn't make sense. What are people supposed to do?"
