There is a growing bias against Social Security Disability applicants

This is a ridiculous and offensive article. The writer does not seem to have the ability to understand that individuals who are awarded disability benefits have gone through a horrendously long process. Also, their conditions tend to be chronic and unresponsive to a rehabilitative approach to treatment.

When I read articles like this, I understand instantly that the author has a strong bias against disability claimants. This type of individual usually doesn't "get it" until they themselves become disabled. And then the light bulb goes off. But then they convince themselves that they are "deserving" while most applicants are not.

Which is what we call hypocrisy in my neck of the woods.
