Social Security Disability – “America’s Hidden Welfare Program”

Over at, James Ledbetter writes about Social Security Disability Insurance – "America's Hidden Welfare Program." Ledbetter obviously comes at it as someone with some skepticism about the rising number of disabled in recent decades, but he makes a lot of good points.

He also mentions a reform plan in the works from MIT economist David Autor, who has done some great analytical work on the program. It will be interesting to see what he comes up with. Check it out here.
