Article On Backlogs In Disability Determination

     Gannett is running a piece on backlogs in Social Security disability determinations. It is one of the most uninformative piece of its type I've seen with a mention of the possibility of claimants "gaming" the system and a discussion of the impending shortfall in the disability trust fund that mentions three possibilities for fixing the problem without mentioning the inevitable solution, interfund borrowing!

The last line of the article: "To remain solvent, the disability program either will need to reduce benefits, raise the FICA deduction, or get an infusion of funds from elsewhere in the federal budget."

Isn't interfund borrowing a type of "infusion of funds from elsewhere in the federal budget"?
