    I know you not trying to blame the victim, but I'm going to sick with what I said above, even two or three hundred dollars a month for insurance is still a steep step for many.  I know a lot of people find it hard to believe that such amount is difficult for people to pay out monthly, but it is.  I went to a gathering for people with MS and there was one woman there that had MS, but was not getting medical care because she couldn't afford the insurance premiums.  I sent her the whole website about getting insurance for as little as two to three hundred dollars, but she still couldn't afford it.  And I don't think a lot of people understand how little extra money others have for insurance especially for what it costs just to keep a roof over you head and you home heated (and I'm not talking about keeping your themo at 72).  

    This last cold spell we had I kept my themostat at 65 and I still had a $175.00 heating and electric bill.  And now my car is in the shop which will be $500.00 and there goes the money I was saving for an eye exam and glasses.  Even Medicare B is costing around $200.00 and I would love to drop that and pay for other things I need.  But, that extra two hundred bucks a month just kills.
