By Billy Sands yeah the part you ignore is ABLE BODIED people on ssi are SUPPOSED TO BE DISABLED ssdi too if your on si or ssdi and you are able to work... you should not be on that program no? look rehabilitatin and aid to the parly or fully disabled should not be touched but if you are young and healthy? why not get out and to a little community work? its good for everyone , why sit at home and watch tv and drink beer on the tx payers tab?

By Leon Calavera-Rivera m on SSI myself, i work from 7:00 in the morning to 2:00 in the Afternoon. Just because your receiving benefits doesn't give you the right to be a Lazy Bum. You need to contribute to Society like the rest of the country. So don't be using the "I am Disabled" card as an excuse to have everyone feel sorry for you. thats not how the world works bud. how about you get off your rear and start contributing instead of sitting on your lazy butt and complaining that the world owes you everything when you are not owed crap!

By Tim Hoffnagle Yes, and if you are able to work, then there are lots of things that need to be done that you can do - like picking up garbage along the sides of roads, etc.

By Billy Sands i think as long as they allow the unemployed time to look for work, community sevice is not too much to ask as long as it isnt something draconian or deliberateyl huiliating
