Study reports that most voters are in favor of SSDI program

Is there anyone in Pennsylvania who is wishing the national election was four weeks or months away, instead of four days away? Much of the national discussion has centered on the economy, employment and the budget. If you are someone with disabilities, you may be feeling a bit discouraged by the discussion and fearful for the future of one of the Social Security Administration's signature programs.

It turns out that the rest of America is on your side. By a significant majority, the vast majority of likely voters favor using other methods to balance the budget and improve the deficit other than cutting Social Security disability benefits. There is even more good news -- the support is bipartisan.

The study was undertaken by Lincoln Park Strategies and was a telephone poll using both cell phone numbers and land lines. Those surveyed were roughly evenly split between self-described Republicans, Independents and Democrats. The results surprised many.

  • About 83 percent of voters agreed that it would be unfair to cut SSDI benefits to those who have paid in to SSDI.
  • Eighty percent of those surveyed said they support the SSDI program compared to 8 percent who felt the program should be cut.
  • Congress should look elsewhere to make budget cuts according to 77 percent of those polled.
  • After hearing allegations that the program is a government handout, 73 percent still support the SSDI program.

This must certainly be good news to those in the application process as well as those who are currently receiving SSDI benefits for illnesses, injuries or mental conditions.
