What a crock! What is the percentage of benefits paid to these people today? If I make 100k now, but got unemployment once when I was young, then I am one of these folks. Hardly scamming the system.They should take back whatever they can, since they are providing 90% of the tax revenue.

The one that got to me was rural folks recieiveng more benefits. That is why we are losing the country. The entitlement mentality is inside the fence...

Has been that way for a long time. I lived in a very rural part of Ohio in the 80's. VERY high teen pregnancy rate (you were hard-pressed to find a 20 year old woman who did not have at least one child). Lots of Mexican migrant workers who applied as soon as they figured out how to do it. Lots of very low-income people with few job prospects (minimum wage clerk jobs at the local discount store were considered a "good job" by many). I imagine the situation might be even worse in rural New Mexico, upstate NY, Upper Michigan, several other places.
