What can you sell to get off PA?

What is with that question?

You DO realize that even selling something for $2,000 would last a few months right? PA is based on INCOME, not what you can sell that will last a few months. Many people have other bills they owe majorly on.

Just because someone is on PA doesn't mean they spend their money on "bad" things... and guess what... if someone who gets assistance wants to spend their money on something completely pointless like a pair of $200 jeans for their 4 month old who will outgrow them in a month... THAT IS THEIR BUSINESS!

If you're so pissed about people getting assistance then go to your state and lobby their laws.

Until then, stop harassing people for taking what is there to help. Less then 3% of your taxes go towards HELPING OTHER PEOPLE, the rest goes towards other pointless things. Like commercials and planting new flowers in the city park.

You should sell everything - clothes, furniture, purses, toys, cars, boats, hell even the house.  You need to do everything possible to stay off PA.  Just keep 1 outfit and wash it nightly.

Duh, you're supposed to sell your soul to get off the PA and appease the CM Gods...

Ooooh.... good idea. I could borrow the neighbors hose because I'd have to sell the washer right?

Absolutely.  They are already paying for your PA, might as well pay for the water too!!!

I'm pro-PA so maybe this doesn't apply to me. I don't think people should have to sell all of their posessions, BUT I do think that selling what you can is a good idea.

I sold everything I could do without and made enough to keep me off of PA for 3 months. Then I had nothing left that I could do without so I applied for it.
