Recovery Would Be A Good Idea

There are few in this country who "like" being on whatever modest public assistance our country has to offer, depending on your circumstances, because the modest public assistance is extremely modest. It's tough to wean yourself off such things, even if you want to, because the transition from "extremely poor" to "job with benefits so I can get health insurance for my kids" is rare, and so in order to remain eligible for Medicaid, the one bit of public assistance people probably do "like," people are trapped in poverty. Though their other choice, if they have it, is "slightly less poor but with no health insurance," which isn't really less poor at all.

Recovery would be good, but until we have it the moochers and the parasites have few options.
