Let me tell you something about politicians and unemployment insurance.
Politicians could not get paid if they did not have someone else's money to support them.
Do they think that they DESERVE campaign contributions? If they had real jobs they would not have the time to go beg for money.
Then they get elected and the citizens pay them still yet for doing nothing productive.
Do politicians consider themselves to be EMPLOYED?
I sure don't.
They are professional liars and bribe takers on the perpetual dole.
Be a politician and make a career out of it.
