How much money does Health Care nationwide lose in a year? If you are on a fixed income of about 850 a month, your medicine is about 300 a month, rent 325 a month, electricity about 100 a month, telephone about 65 a month, car about 150 a month, cable 45 a month. What is not there is food and gas. I had to get a part time job just to pay my bills. Now if I get ill and have to go to the hospital, what happens. You do the math and tell me or other like me that we don't need a national health care program. Clinton's seems to cover more people.
