Should i buy health insurance instead of providing food clothing heat and shelter for my family,?0zax for Mrs.SUE2012-08-06 08:02:46
or should I opt for the fine not be able to pay . Go to jail, lose my job , passing the burden of myself and my family in that the citizen who pays his taxes? Should we force all homeless people in the purchase of mansions.
Why are necessities, such as food, clothing and shelter mostly affordable, but not health insuarnce?1helly2012-07-26 08:40:03
Can't figure it out. Here in Tempe if a man were to work 80 hours a week and earn minimum wage with no benefits (remember, we have nine-percent unemployment now, higher than Belgium, Australia and Norway, mind you), he could bring in about $2,000 per month before taxes. He can get a studio for under $500 or a rented room for a little less; one month's worth of groceries, if purchased at the 99 Cent Store or Food City, could run him $250 per month, and a week of clothing purchased at Goodwill might run him about $100. All affordable, many options for the low-wage earner. Now, this guy actually works for a living maximum hours, so he doesn't qualify for state aid (I've looked into it, that salary is too high), and many jobs don't offer benefits, particularly low-skilled ones, so what's he to do? Let's say he has a pre-existing condition, therefore, he is either denied insurance outright or charged well over $1,000 per month (look at Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Golden Rule, Aetna, Cigna and United). So, he works for a living, doesn't smoke, no woman will have sex with him, he has no children, he doesn't do drugs, he has no gadges (iPod, computer, stereo), no car (he takes the bus), even after all that, he's still screwed. He needs preventative care, not emergency ward treatment as that's not financially viable for America long term, so what does he do: job offers no benefits, is denied or overcharged for health insurance, can't find a job with benefits, state won't provide the working man with state insurance...shouldn't he just quit working and become the welfare leach that conservatives revile because hard work is getting him nowhere?
Do food pantries ask for income /family size, etc when needing food?1icelocsgirl2012-08-11 22:04:59
Therefore, I live alone and I can make decent money . The problem is that now I'm totally wiped out the savings and the best of my credit card only for urgent family emergency . I'll be totally fine once I get paid for more than you need for bills, and then when back on track I can add to my savings account again. But until they are paid within 8 days, I literally do not have a dollar to my name until then. I posted a few adds on Craigslist to sell some items, but you have to get my car insurance and electricity to be very soon. If someone answers yet .. I was thinking of going to a food pantry to pick up some items. Do you verify income , I am NOT low income is only a temporary solution. After receiving the money , I would donate some items to the bank just for my own conscience. I know there are families with children who are low income.
What would cost the country more? Providing affordable health insurance or not providing it?0JMS2012-09-19 07:45:05
This week I have had two experiences where having health insurance has saved the lives and livelihoods of two of my family members. They both had procedures to remove cancererous growths before they had a chance to spread. Without health insurance, they would not have gone to the doctor regularly and the cancer would not have been detected in time. So instead of a $3000 procedure, it would have meant long term care and treatment, loss of income, perhaps bankruptcy. I spend $2000 a month on health insurance for my family. The average person cannot afford this. I think it is unfair. I also think it is bad economics. What's your opinion?
