.... Misty Navarro, Thomas mother, makes $18 an hour as an office supervisor in a pediatric clinic. In Healthy Families, her premium is $12 a month. Without the program, she could cover her kids through her employer but it would cost $300 a month.
She doesnt have the money. She will barely make the $750 a month rent for the Santa Paula town home the family is moving into thanks to a government housing program.
Essentially, shed be uninsured, scrambling to find ways to continue the treatment Thomas gets to control his weight and minimize his risk of diabetes. If he needed two $1,200 CT scans like he did after jumping off a table when he was 3, shed be cooked.
Youre putting yourself in debt, she said. Its awful to have medical bills.
The proposal is just that. Advocates expect Democratic legislative leaders to fight to keep at least part of the program but predict the possibility of significant cuts

I made a mistake in the reply, I should have said that even during the boom there were plenty of rentals available in the $450-$650 range, not that the mode of the rentals was just over $600. Sorry for the confusion.
Those words are not in the liberal lexicon
Liberals live in a fantasy world where government is responsible for you womb to tomb
The only thing I miss about Cali is the ocean.
Apparently the insurance-paid “treatment” isn’t working — better try some “push-aways.”
Since the article stated “her family moved in” am I to assume she has a husband? If so , does he sit on his a@@ or does he bring in any money? Regardless of the abortion crowd, it does take a man to start the birth process.
Back in 1982 I was awarded custody of my niece; as she was considered “a family of one” even though I had group insurance coverage she was issued a booklet of Medi-Cal stamps.
She what is commonly called “lazy-eye syndrome” and the doctors decided she needed corrective surgery.
When my wife admitted her for surgery at the hospital she handed over a stamp — on the day of release and discharge the clerk said they had no record of having gotten a stamp.
My wife cheerily peeled off a new one and handed it over; she said that was the first she had ever felt like a millionaire.
Careful, you may bruise your little fists and knees on that marble floor...

The first symptom of auto-induced stress is hyperventilation; slowly,... breathe in, breathe out, ummmmm... ummmmm...
That should save on taxi fares to get to the redlight district.

I agree with you. Some folks have no clue.
I am so tired of hearing of these sob stories from people who need to take control of their lifestyle and stop b$&ching. Life is tough for most people; but they shut up and keep going.
I am well past retirement age. I should be enjoying my remaining years with my wife on a beach. Instead, I keep working to pay for a lifetime of raising 9 kids.
My choice; I pay the price.
I won't say it. I've been told on this forum,"just leave", (Illinois). Life is not always so simple.
Seriously.....what planet do you live on?
Did you forget to take your Colace this morning? Sheesh!
And pay for her vices?
I wish I made 18 dollars an hour.
