The Repubs always talk about finding ways to provide Americans with affordable health insurance, but what is affordable? Back in 2005 when my husband, who was still working, lost his health insurance under which we were both covered. It had to do with his hours with his Union when work was very slow. We paid $500 a month for COBRA for both of us which was still unaffordable since he was out of work and I worked with no insurance plan. At that point, we were bringing in about $3,000 a month through his unemployment and my paycheck. By the time we paid our mortgage, utility bills, other insurances and the cost of living expenses, nothing would be left.
This insurance system for health care is a disaster because it will leave no one, who isn't wealthy, with the ability to save for the future.
