    Thanks for that, I need a few laughs.

    I went over my renewal application for SNAP, checked the website, and came to the not-entirely-surprising conclusion that the check I got from my sister puts me over the income limit. When my husband was still alive and his unemployment had run out, it didn't, but now, with just me by myself, it does. Therefore, no more SNAP and no OHP either. Which now makes me an ACA "failure." Too broke to buy any of the insurance, even the cheapest bronze plan and too "rich" to qualify for our state's version of Medicaid. So, I'm now back to doing what my husband was, hoping I survive until Medicare kicks in. I have four years to wait. I think I'll make it; I'm blessed with better genes than my husband apparently was, but it's not exactly a comfortable place to be!

    Feeling a little down about that today.

    What I want to know is, who's going to pay for these crimes against humanity that those b@st@rds are perpetrating against the rest of us?

      but I don't qualify for insurance either, I'm in the "your state didn't expand" gap as well. And I'm only 43.

      I'll keep you in my prayers, maybe our stupid governors will cave.
