I don't know how we can pay $700 health insurance each month

We used to qualify for Medicaid and we don't anymore. I don't know how we are going to afford insurance that high each month. We think as may cut out Internet and cable but it only helps a little

We get about 2500 a month

But we pay rent ($500) water ($40) sewage ($40) trash ($30) gas ($100) electric ($100) lease payment ($300) car insurance ($100) food ($500) insurance ($600) cable/phone/Internet ($120) loan payment ($88) and gas for the van ($150)

That doesn't even include laundry detergent, trash bags, and other house hold things.

Other than the cable package I don't know what to let go of everything else I kind of have to pay.

Anyone else feel like they're just drowning?

Check into a subsidiary.

They are supposed to have designed plans that will cost almost $0 after the subsidiary if you qualify for one.

I know how you feel. Cable and my gym membership are the only two things I could stop and still be living paycheck to pay check.
Things will get better next DEC 2014. When my car is paid off

Ugh ours is $1100. It crazy. But we don't have any financial issues. If we did there would be few things to cut out but not enough to pay for it.

You went from qualifying for Medicaid to having to shell out 700/mo? Wow. That's assinine. I'd keep looking into it or saying fuck you to ohamacare.

We have been paying that for years. It's life. I have made less than you and still paid our own insurance. Never received a dime of any outside help.

The economy will suffer and have a domino effect.
