There are lots of sayings on matters like what I am about to mention but right now I favor “YOU CAN’T POLISH A TURD”
Although the U.S. Congress MUST be the world champions of shining on, buffing and otherwise attempting to put a glow on turds of all makes and models, the one I mention here is the unemployment benefits currently at 99 weeks. Here in the U. S, after a person has exhausted his initial 26 weeks of unemployment from the State the Federal government picks up another 73 weeks of payments giving a worker 99 weeks to find work. Those additional weeks and the extentions are the results of Congress’ first attempt to polish the turd that became the Real Estate crisis. That’s a lot of weeks. That’s almost two years to find work but where is the incentive when they keep extending it.
