The National Organization of Social Security Claimants' Representatives (NOSSCR) commissioned a poll that found that the majority of voters support Social Security Disability Insurance benefits and do not believe the government should cut funding to this program.
Voters were asked whether they think the SSDI program should receive budget cuts, and 83 percent of those polled said that it would be "unfair" to cut benefits to Americans who have paid into the system. Of those, 75 percent identified as Republican.
The poll also found that:
- 73 percent support the SSDI program even after hearing the program referred to as another "handout" or entitlement program
- 77 percent said that Congress should focus on other programs to cut to try to balance the budget
Only 8 percent of those polled said that the budget for the SSDI program should be cut.
The poll, conducted by Lincoln Park Strategies, suggests that political attacks against the SSDI program do not reflect the opinions of the majority of Americans.
