You actually believe that a person would rather stay at home f9rr $300 a week than get a job that pays much more. I’m sure you do. And, if you are going to argue $300 might be more than someone could earn by working, the solution isn’t to not pay the $300; the solution is to raise the minimum wage.

THATS ON TOP of the unemployment benefits offered by states. For example in OHiO ($480/wk max-$647 max with dependent)

I am sure that is the first time a politician has done that. He must be a closet Democrat.

That’s not even close to being the truth. Mississippi is the state with the lowest Median Income at just under $46,000 annually. At $480 per week a person collecting unemployment for a year would earn $24,960; half as much. That is over the poverty level, but is that the standard you’re going for?

in many cases those state benefits have run out. The problem is Republicans lack the empathy gene. They are more likely to be upset if the neighbor’s dog gets tangled up in the fence than if the neighbor’s kids go hungry.

So you choose to put down the repub for the same BS the dem is doi g, rather than address the TOTALLY RIDICULOUS idea that murders get anything.

46, people like YOU are why both parties suck.
