Credit Where It's Due

Many conservatives are dead set against a national health care plan claiming whenever the government does anything they screw it up.
I got a chance to determine whether that was the case for myself last week as I applied online for Michigan Unemployment Insurance. I found it was quite easy to do: they had an online instructional video that clearly explained the steps and the information you should have handy before applying. This helped the application process itself go smoothly. I applied on Monday and on Wednesday afternoon I had already received a confirmation letter in the mail letting me know what the amount of the payments would be and giving instructions on how to proceed.
I found the process to be efficient, relatively simple and - so far - trouble free.
Maybe government isn't the problem after all! :-)

  1. But of course it makes sense that the one thing the government is good at is doling out money earned by and taken from hard working Americans.

    And yes that was satire... for those who don't know me.
