Thank you n God bless.
The Brookings report cited above said TOTAL federal spending was projected to rise from 20 to 30 percent of GDP. Spending on the elderly is still less than half the total.

I started drawing disability about 30 years ago.i was married 22 years to my first husband and did not work because I had 4 children.then I divorced and went to work. After several years my back would not let me work( I had a birth defect and had a lot of back surgeries.)then since I could not work.i had to get disability. I started drawing $300 + dollars .I now get a little over$400 dollars and that is not near enough.i heard of a couple that that never worked but odd jobs.they both got a doctor to say they were not able to work and they both started drawing around $1.000.00 or more of disability.i worked several years after I divorced until I became unable to work. I have been married to someone else for almost 30 yyears.but because he makes more money they said i did not qualify to draw more. But i have questions about that.what is your thoughts
