Ive seen all the "we were better off on PA because my tax return was 3x as much" posts. And I do get it that sometimes if you make a $1 more a day it may throw you over the income guidelines and the $30 more a month dont cover all the benefits you loose. BUT what I dont get is the ones who didnt work and now do. Do you not realize that you are working your social security number? That you wont be this young forever so working your social is a good thing? And if your employer offers a 401k plan you are better off working than not? I mean you can't keep having kids forever. Or that silly little thing called pride that you cant put a price on. What about that?
