Story Topics

As far as making history goes, President Obama is breaking all kinds of records for federal disability payouts to non-working Americans.

The total number of those in the nation receiving benefits from disability coffers has hit a new record level: In November, it was 10,982,920, Breitbart.com reported.

That breaks the previous record number seen under the White House administration — 10,978,040 in May.

The data from the Social Security Administration is shocking: The current number of those on disability surpass the entire population count of Greece, 10,772,967, Breitbart reported.

The newly released November numbers broke down this way, Breitbart said: There were 8,941,660 disability-claiming workers; 1,883,594 children of disability-claiming workers; and 157,666 spouses of those claiming disability.

And one more record: The November number of 8,941,660 disabled workers broke the October record level of 8,936,932, Breitbart reported.
