I liked your post. telling it like it is for you and your walk thru 'life on finances' and as it has to work as you maneuver thru it. No flack from me on that one LOL
I ain't living on 700 either but if I HAD to, darn right I would do just that cause if I HAD to then it is what it is
but MANY here are not this low of monthly income at all so?
One thing on subsidy and healthcare options etc is IT IS available if one qualifies and if one even has money in the bank it means one can still thru 'low income' get a great subsidy for a great healthcare plan..........so in a way the human right you kinda are saying is trying to be given but of course so many shades of gray out there on qualifications and what subisidy one gets and still can afford on what plan.
like take a 60 yr old lady widowed with some health issues. has a home and land in big pricey location. property worth 3 million. she ain't selling but she has 'no income' really thru SS etc that can get her decent medical insurance at a real affordable price. The healthcare thru govt requires no 'finances' thru assets owned. It is based on what is your income for the year and then a subsidy can hit. and make healthcare affordable to one 'who is a millinaire' on assets but is cash poor per month truly. SO I think there is a sad but doable round about way to help many but ya know, like you said, hmmm, on it all as the world has to be manuevered thru crazy requirements and more at all times but some can benefit to a good degree on who we are.
If I posted what we do and what we get and what assets we own and how we work the system people would go bat crazy on what I post but I won't do that cause I also know that for over 40 yrs we paid big into the system also so we paid our dues. Now we take some dues back
all legally thru the govt as how it rolls of course
they allow it, I am taking advantage of it. Like I said, we paid so ......
