There's a family of five who cannot afford healthcare insurance. Who cares?
Here are the details. Dad works. Mom stays at home. Dad pulls 70k per year. Healthcare insurance costs $500 a month. They have a negative amortization loan on a half-million dollar house in Orange County California, one of the wealthiest counties in America. Their son can't play football. Too much risk of injury.
There is a government program for which they cannot qualify because their income is too high. And yet they scrimp and live simply just to afford their mortgage payment. They have been without health insurance for over a year.
Is this a problem?
