Oh, yeah, "funemployment" is so fun when you have no money to pay for the insurance mandates.

Then why are they so adamant about paying unemployment compensation? Just let them pursue their dreams. The same can be said of the generational welfare groups; let them pursue their dreams. We don't need money as long as we have our dreams.

I know a few people that this very aspect is a plus for them.

One of which has his own business during the day (running local P&D) but had to maintain a part time job at Fed Ex in the sort facility as a package handler just to have affordable insurance for his family.  He quit Fed Ex a couple weeks ago.  He can now be at home with his wife and kids at night, gets a lot more sleep, and is able to take contracts that he normally wouldn't be able to take which brings in more money to his business.  He's hoping by next year to be able to buy another truck and hire another driver.

That's 2 jobs.  The one he quit at Fed Ex that will give someone else the opportunity, and the one he will create by expanding his business.

It's the beginning of the full person movement so well shown on Star Trek:  The Next Generation.  You don't have careers you simply pursue your desires. 
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

you forget, Nazi Pelosi said unemployment compensation is good for the economy.  No one seems to agree with her but that is what she claims.

All of that and you did not mention what the replacement healthcare was. Your story makes no sense because even before the ACA: a self employed person/family could buy health insurance for just as reasonable price wise. Before ACA there was/is COBRA and it is an expensive joke.  Did your friend successfully sign-up and utilize their ACA/Obamacare yet? Many are finding the policy is bogus and no way to render payment.
