see the story for the poll "results"
More Americans rely on their families for assistance than the government, so federal officials have undertaken an effort to help people to apply for federal assistance.
“Given that only 15 percent of you turn to government assistance in tough times, we want to make sure you know about benefits that could help you,” USA.gov announced today. The ”government made easy’ website has created a “help for difficult financial times” page for people to learn more about the programs.
The government got that statistic from a poll asking Americans what helps them the most during tough times.....

Unfortunately he was probably being facetious. Conservatives typically look at people in your situation and wonder why you aren't dead already instead of sponging off of good hard working Americans. Because to them, anyone in your situation if they want to be good Americans would die with dignity instead of looking for healthcare solutions. To these people, unless you are already wealthy and therefore can provide your own health care coverage, you aren't worth anything, and should probably use your last ounce of strength digging your own grave.
I really hope you recover, your illness goes into remission and you start feeling better soon. If this were a better country, we would take care of our own sick before blowing holes on other countries.
So, because of Obamacare you have no help???

When I was first diagnosed with cancer and had no medical coverage, I was able to get help from medicaid. If it wasn't for the cancer center, I wouldn't have known that I was eligable. I m not working and my husband is on disibility. Once I am done being treated for cancer though, my coverage ends. I'll have to see what I can do after that.edit on 28-8-2012 by Night Star because: (no reason given)
