Taking the tougher road

How is it equitable in this society that people I know have no trouble receiving government assistance, either honestly or through deceit, yet my wife and I are struggling with the specter of me losing my state-provided health insurance because we make too much money? Of course the state says our income is over the threshold for the Oregon Health Plan, but how do they expect us to exist in this society when my medicine costs upwards of $1500 for a month's supply, and our combined incomes are in the vicinity of $2000? I am doing all that I can to talk to my congressional representatives to pass Obama's health care reform.

Gathering notes

Hello again everyone, or lack thereof. I am gathering all of my notes that I scribble down for more blog material.
