The strict meaning of disability is the condition of a person who does not have the typical abilities of a healthy person.
Types of disability
There are many types of disability, both physical, mental, or developmental, and a wide range of the amount of the disability. Some loss of ability is expected with age and is considered normal. A disability may occur due to illness or injury. Some may be temporary, while some may lead to a permanent condition.
The term disabled sometimes is misinterpreted in a pejorative sense, and terms like differently-abled have come into existence, as another example of liberal redefinition to conform to politically correct languages. Some groups of disabled, such as the deaf, do not regard themselves as disabled and have developed a culture where hearing is considered unwanted[Citation Needed].
Yet another aspect of the flawed Obamacare system is the wasteful spending on the uninsured, who are responsible for covering their own medical costs. A second instance of wasteful deficit spending is the handouts of pensions and unemployment payments choosing not to purchase disability or work insurance.
