The number of American workers collecting disability insurance benefits hit yet another record high in October, according to the Social Security Administration.
This month 8,803,335 disabled workers are collecting benefits, up from the previous record of 8,786,049 set in September.
In February 2009, the first full month after President Barack Obama took office, there were 7,469,240 workers collecting federal disability insurance.
Thus, so far in Obama's term, the number of workers collecting disability has increased by 1,334,095.
That works out to a net increase of about 975 per day.
During Bush's eight years as president, the number of workers collecting federal disability insurance increased by 2,375,258, rising from 5,067,119 in February 2001 to 7,442,377 in January 2009.
That equaled an average net increase of about 24,742 per month amd 813 per day.
In Bush's second term alone the number of workers on disability increased by 1,198,575, equaling an average monthly increase of about 24,870 and an average daily increase of about 820.
Obama got into the drivers seat of something going in the wrong direction and pressed the gas pedal.
He is directing this train on a path that will soon start to go over the cliff.
His record is dismal and he does not deserve re-election.
Only those on the doll will vote for him.
