I have to say, that while CCS intent is honerable, I have a big concern with fake disability people. I'm aware of this as I have many of the clients that report to CCS. Most of these people would be able to do constructive work and function as normal individuals in society, but there is a big incentive for them to reach for the comfort of a governent disability lifestyle with guraanteed montly support. I've gained insigt on this though 10 years on the job, working with these folks. In my opinion, there is no real need for government support in most cases, except for thier continued support which leads to poor health habits, self pitty and a lack of initiative to participate in work activities. Many if not most of these folks allow themselves to self degenerate by use of illicit or abuse of perscription pills. Some have died as a result. I often see thier lack of initiative carry to a sub normal houshold living condion, poor hygene, cluttered and un-clean surroundings, etc. over time. I feel as though the mental health and disability systems of support are being gammed to receive benefits instead of taking self responsibility to achive a constructive lifestyle. We need to be honest with our decisions to allow people to receeive a disability for nothing more than an easy lifestyle with ample incentives to continue on the course once they begin to abuse thier well being though durg addiction. Let's not allow this to happen and if its alrady occured, we need to take steps to return these people to a higher function of living by expecting more from them. Finally, I feel that we have punished individual achievement though many forms of government support. If we continue on this track it is at the ruin of our nation. Thanks for allowing me to share my thoughts on this topic.
