The unemployed need to deal with their state lawmakers

Thought I heard the other day that North Carolina had cut off some of the ‘benefits’(???) and the unemployment rate went DOWN once the ‘free money’ was cut off.
Funny how the ‘giveaways’ are considered ‘benefits’ while my SS payments are ‘entitlements’.
And before the ‘other’ crowd jumps in, I also paid into the same system and never drew a penny of unemployment or used medicare/medicaid.
I admit to using VA for a couple of procedures BUT I worked many years at sub standard pay with no ‘clock’ to guide my work hours...MY CHOICE, but.......
BTW my 1st withholding in 1954 and am still ‘working’ albeit at my own pace etc.....
Also, I have NEVER been without gainful employment one minute more than I have ‘wanted’ to be.
“Funny how the giveaways are considered benefits while my SS payments are entitlements.”
What’s funny about that? You paid your money into SS so you should be “entitled” to your monthly check. What is funny is that people call welfare and food stamps entitlements as if people are entitled to them.
