Republican Elephant: I'm cutting off your treatment. I'd hate to see you become dependent!
I am sure that some people have become dependent on their unemployment checks. I remember in our recession during the elder Bush administration, a man came into a restaurant that I was at with a friend, dressed like a slob, unshaven and messy hair. This guy had the nerve to go to the manager and ask her to sign a slip of paper from the state proving that he applied for work there. She refused and said not until you actually apply for a job (in which he didn’t). What a louse.
