Disabled Nation

10 05 2011

The number of people receiving a disability pension now exceeds 860,000 – or 220,000 more than the number claiming unemployment benefits. It costs the Budget $13 billion. In the past 10 years the number claiming disability pensions has climbed 11 per cent.

From the new budget:

PEOPLE claiming a disability pension will be allowed to work up to 30 hours a week and still receive part of their welfare payments in a bid to get more people back in the workforce.

Except disabled people by definition cannot work!!! According to Centerlink:

You may get Disability Support Pension if you are unable to work for 2 years because of illness, injury or disability, or if you are permanently blind.

This is pretty much an admission that a large number of so-called disabled disabled people are not actually disabled. What sort of perverted welfare addicted nation is this and why do these people get disability pension when they are actually not disabled by government’s own definition and admission?
