While we can all say we want to help those who simply through misfortune (accidents, REAL medical issues, etc...) cannot take care of themselves, we have so far gone past that tipping point it is ridiculous.

One thing that would help would be a single standard for "disability".

For a while my father was in a peculiar condition where his physical and medical failings were bad enough that the state's industrial-insurance program would not cover him, effectively making him unemployable - yet Social Security was still maintaining that he was not disabled.
