I watched with great interest a “60 Minutes” story Oct. 6 about the abuse and overspending of public money on federal disability programs.
CBS journalist Steve Kroft profiled Oklahoma Sen. Tom Coburn’s work to ferret out fraud in disability programs. In case you didn’t know how large those programs have become in recent years, some 12 million people now get disability check from the government each month instead of holding down a job.
That number is up 20 percent in the past six years alone.
