Goldwein on Disability Program: “Broken”

Over at the Hill’s blog, Marc Goldwein of the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget writes that the Social Security Disability Insurance program is “broken.” But it’s not merely the program’s finances that are the problem:

“The Social Security disability system is broken in many ways. Not only is the program financially insolvent, but the system is wrought with fraud, needlessly complex, difficult to navigate, inconsistent and unfair in determining eligibility, inflexible to changes in the structure of the workforce, administratively overburdened, almost completely uncoordinated with other government policies, and unable to help or reward those who are interested in reentering the workforce.”
