What should be a right? Free access to any states benefits no matter where you live?

Have you ever taken an economics class? I recommend twelve.

That's not sacrifice, that's changing your address. Sacrifice means "work".

News flash - I did that 5 years ago, but I didn't expect to get public benefits handed to me while I got settled.

So the answer is no. You want others to pay for your dream, but aren't willing to part with any of your money if you make it big. Got it.

If your experience is minimal, what have you "got" that makes you think you can make it?

Funny voice, great personality, tons of amazing qualities an actor could have.

So it's a right for hard-working taxpayers to subsidize out-of-work actors?

Actors have the highest unemployment rate of any profession in the US: Jobs With the Best (and Worst) Job Security - 24/7 Wall St.

Are you in SAG-AFTRA? If not, a big barrier here.
