True Story At Local Car Dealer (Colorado) From Tom Selkis' (Latham Ford)
One of my salesmen here had a woman in his office yesterday wanting to lease a brand new Focus. As he was reviewing her credit app with her he noticed she was on social security disability. He said to her, "You don't look like you're disabled and unable to work."
She said "Well, I'm really not, I could work if I wanted to, but I make more now then I did when I was working and got hurt. (a non-disabling injury)
She said that the government sends her $1500.00 a month in 1 check, she gets $700.00 a month on an EBT card (food stamps), and $800.00 a month for rent. Oh yeah and 250 minutes free on her phone. That is just south of $3500.00 a month.
When she was working she was taking home about $330.00 per week.
Do the math and then ask yourself why the hell should she go back to work?
If you multiply that by millions of people you start to realize the scope of the problem we face as a country. Once the socialists have 51% of the population in that same scenario we are finished.
The question is when do we cross that threshold if we haven't already.
By the way, she didn't lease a Focus here because the dealer down the road beat our deal by $10.00/month.
Glad to know she is so frugal with her (our) hard earned money."
WHAT A COUNTRY!
