Why are necessities, such as food, clothing and shelter mostly affordable, but not health insuarnce?

Can’t figure it out. Here in Tempe if a man were to work 80 hours a week and earn minimum wage with no benefits (remember, we have nine-percent unemployment now, higher than Belgium, Australia and Norway, mind you), he could bring in about $2,000 per month before taxes. He can get a studio for under $500 or a rented room for a little less; one month’s worth of groceries, if purchased at the 99 Cent Store or Food City, could run him $250 per month, and a week of clothing purchased at Goodwill might run him about $100. All affordable, many options for the low-wage earner. Now, this guy actually works for a living maximum hours, so he doesn’t qualify for state aid (I’ve looked into it, that salary is too high), and many jobs don’t offer benefits, particularly low-skilled ones, so what’s he to do? Let’s say he has a pre-existing condition, therefore, he is either denied insurance outright or charged well over $1,000 per month (look at Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Golden Rule, Aetna, Cigna and United). So, he works for a living, doesn’t smoke, no woman will have sex with him, he has no children, he doesn’t do drugs, he has no gadges (iPod, computer, stereo), no car (he takes the bus), even after all that, he’s still screwed. He needs preventative care, not emergency ward treatment as that’s not financially viable for America long term, so what does he do: job offers no benefits, is denied or overcharged for health insurance, can’t find a job with benefits, state won’t provide the working man with state insurance…shouldn’t he just quit working and become the welfare leach that conservatives revile because hard work is getting him nowhere?

NY car insurance question for a new driver?

Okay, I’ve had my permit for like a year because I didn’t have a car to care if I had a license or not. Now that I’m getting a car. I was wondering how about how much insurance would cost. I have to wait a couple weeks from the car insurance place so please no get a quote” I just want an approximate estimate of about how much it would cost. I don’t have drivers ed or anything. Just a license at 17 on my parents insurance. I would have my own car but it’d be on their insurance so that’s 3 cars on 1 insurer. The car I am going to get is a 84′ Volvo wagon. Please just a month average price of how much more my parents insurance would go up. ( like they pay 100 and it’d be 250/mo. So i pay 150 a month.) something like that. I just want to know if my job will cover my own difference Thankyou.”

I can’t afford insurance in Ontario. The basic rates for males under 25 are the highest in all of north america.

Advice on teen car insurance ?

I’m 18, from Ontario and have had my G2 for over a year now. I was in a deathly car accident in january on the highway because of really bad weather conditions, I’m lucky to be okay. The cop didn’t charge me because the weather was so bad and there were a number of car accidents that week. However the insurance company faulted me because I spun out first. Its been 2 months and my dad has done nothing but complain about his car being wrecked. He blames me 100% for the accident even though I hit black ice and there was nothing I could do, and he wasn’t even there… For my 18th birthday my grandad (his dad) is giving me $10,000 for a car. My dad is making him wait to give it to me and he won’t take me car shopping ! And when I do get one he’s not putting me under his insurance ! I have to insure my own car at 18 with only a part time job. Is this unfair? Not being able to drive has been a huge hassel. What are the cheapest cars to insure ? I can drive standard so there’s no limitations. What’s the best insurance companies ? How much do you think it would be ? Also I’m going to college in Florida next year on an athletic scholarship so what is insurance like down there ?

Looking for a fast, reliable, good quality and low insurance group hatchback.?

I’m 24 and at the moment have a fairly low Saxo VTR with a couple of other performance mods, it handles like a dream on nice roads and has good acceleration. It’s starting to fall apart with things going wrong left, right and centre, due to French engineering I presume? I have a DR10 on my licence from 4-5 years ago, so my insurance is a bit pricey. I just paid for a year so I can swap it straight over. I’m looking for something as fun to drive as standard and NOT French. Thanks Oh and please spare me the lectures, speed is for safe overtaking and I’m not driving too fast, you’re driving too slow!

Auto Insurance??

I was just wondering what people thought is a good price to pay monthly for auto insurance? I went to Progressive.com and saw they have different plans available…I went with one that looked like it had a bunch of things and was around 94ish dollars a month…couple of questions though What is the average you think I should pay? (No traffic violations in the last x amt of years, not since 98, fyi) Also, do you think its worth it for more fuller coverage if I’m going to actually own the car outright and not make payments? Is it worth it to select the rental insurance as one of the options? I don’t know anything about what I should get, any help is appareciated!

Insurance rates for 2004 Pontiac GTO?

I am almost 18 and looking for a new vehicle. Currently I am driving a Mitsubishi Eclipse Gt (5 speed) and am paying $200 a month! They messed it up so I need to call them back it should only be $120 a month. Anyhow, I am looking to upgrade. I have been looking at Srt-4’s which are quite high on insurance, Ion Redline’s aka Cobalt SS which is cheaper than the Srt-4, and have currently spotted a 2004 Pontiac GTO (6 speed) , sticker price $12,000 I will try to talk them down to 9 or 10k which might be pushing it even though the car is almost 8 years old. Anyway for the minimum amount for full coverage I only want to be paying no more than $250 a month. Do you think this can be achieved? I have the good student discount and have taken driver’s ed. Thanks Guys
