This article was undoubtedly a conservative press release because of this:

GOP wants to roll off the payroll tax break to the middle class so that we feel squeezed going into 2012. So, they find a way to do a press release scaring everyone about SS and disability benefits to leverage it in Congress.

In reality, if they turn the economy around and some of the disabled individuals get their jobs back, they won't be eligible for benefits anymore and payouts will return to normal levels. This is a temporary issue that they are trying to pass off as long term instability.
