And? There are varying degrees, as there is with anything. Don't tell me you think it's easy to to get qualified for SSi. My pcp, psychiatrist, and therapist, would all disagree with you

It's not easy. The government likes to take money, not pay it out.

I hope they don’t like to pay it out. It’s tax payer dollars
