I wonder if this woman knows these people? In any case, this is infuriating. Damn straight they should close the loophole that allows this -- although I wonder about that $1000 part. A thousand bucks ain't gonna make anyone independently wealthy. I'm all for government aid for the disadvantaged, but my sympathy goes only so far. You can buy a house in Michigan, and a car, and eat very well with a half-million bucks. This woman needs a really good smack upside the head.
