Heres a story for you. I am employed full time, and am having a hard time "making it", paycheck to paycheck...and still going without. I have no
bills except my mortgage (no car payments/credit cards etc) I pay cash for everything. If I do not have the cash, I do not buy it. I do have a friend
although, who has been unemployed for 9 months and living better than ever. She gets her unemployment checks, recieives free medical coverage
(medicaid) no grocery bill (foodstamps) and lives better than she ever did working. And her unemployment benefits are bing extended for 6 months. She
has not even looked for a job at all. She is "living it up" while she can. Lives better than when she was working. And living better than alot of us
who are working our tails off. The sad part is... YOU AND I ARE PAYING FOR PEOPLE TO ENJOY NOT WORKING. . Not all people are like this I know, and
not all people are better off collecting unemployment. But too many are!
