Another Bad Idea

Posted by John Kuhnlein | Apr 30, 2015 | 0 Comments

If dumb ideas were currency, the folks at Forbes would be even richer than they pretend to be. In an apparent effort to demonstrate that stupidity is eternal, here comes another great insight: Let's privatize Social Security disability. Yeah, sure. Good thinking. Some guy named Merrill Matthews, who will never have to worry about keeping his tuxedo ready for the Nobel Prize award ceremony,, has suggested this. What, do you suppose, has lead this deep thinker to believe that privatizing Social Security disability will work? Why, because three counties in Texas tried this very thing more than thirty years ago. Guess what: It worked brilliantly! Or so says the man who does not have to sit by the phone when the McCarthur Genius Grants are awarded.  Why, let for-profit insurance companies get involved and the whole system will be as precise as an atomic clock.  Nothing like that old invisible hand, huh Merrill? What a dunce this man is. I guess he has not read about all the fraud and abuse involved in private disability claims. You think there is a reason why UNUM-Provident and Met Life are sued so often?  I guess Merrill never heard any of these horror stories while sitting around with his friends Morgan Stanley and the Lehman brothers, sipping gin cocktails at the country club.  Thanks for the bright idea, Merrill. Now slip back on into your alternate reality where there are no poor and there are no disabled because they all read Atlas Shrugged and got over it.

Stupid Idea Of The Day

About the Author

John Kuhnlein

Since 1992, I have been helping the people of Southern Arizona get the benefits they are due. Before devoting all my efforts to assisting people with Social Security disability claims, I also handled such complex lawsuits as medical malpractice and products liability. I brought to my Social Security cases all the skills and attention to detail that I developed in the courtroom. I approach each Social Security disability case as if it were a million-dollar lawsuit. For the people trying to get Social Security benefits, their claim is every bit as important. Because I have personally handled so many Social Security cases, I have refined the skills I need to win your case for you. I have helped people win cases for every kind of ailment from arthritis to valley fever. At present, I am focused on helping those persons with neurological and orthopedic disorders. Because claims for people over age fifty bring additional complications, I particularly seek out those cases to work on. I regularly write about back and spine conditions on my blog. I actively seek out the latest information about orthopedic and neurological disorders to ensure I can represent my clients as effectively as possible. Because of my current focus, I regret that I am not able to take any cases for mental disorders. If you are over age fifty and suffer from any orthopedic or neurological disorder, please contact me at once.
