This was a conversation that my husband and I had this morning. We were talking about a friend of his, who has been living off unemployment for over a year. His wife does not work. Yet they host parties, have the big screen tv, cell phones, ect ect, the works. They own a home, and pay a morgage every month and yes I know what their payment is, is close to mine. We barely scrape by every money even with me working PT and dh working full time.
Dh's friend also told him that state insurance is SO much better than getting insurance from a job, he told dh they cover everything. I was sitting here thinking, UNREAL. Then he proceeded to tell me that he goes into 'ghetto' homes all the time, they always live really well. Our house is falling apart becasue we don't have the time and money to put into it right now, but people living off the govt are always living well. (Not that we don't live well, but we are frugal and we sometimes have trouble with that! You know what I mean LOL)
How do people who are on unemployment and foodstamps live so well????
