This article is nothing more than a throw back to the Regan era of "Cadillac driving Black welfare queens". Obviously the writer has not had to live on any government assistance in his lifetime.
After becoming ill in 2003, I faced a major change to my financial lifestyle and a change in my thought patterns about lazy people on government assistance. It is impossible to enjoy 3 and 4 star hotels and restaurants while receiving government assistance. The amount of assistance given to families is below poverty level. I can not see anyone in his/her right mind desiring to stay on government assistance in order to have health insurance.

If I am off mark, please let me know. I am always open to learning. I just can not see anyone not working in order to have govt' health insurance.
Maybe I am all alone on this one.
