I got an email from MoveOn.org that prompted me to submit an answer to this question. After I spewed forth my frustrated rant into the space provided I decided to share it with all of you.
It would mean I could put money in savings, start to pay off credit cards, and maybe, just maybe, afford to be able to actually GO to the doctor since I still have a deductible and co-pay to worry about.
The ~$1440 I would save could mean I could fix my roof, put new tires on my vehicle, start paying off my student loans, do something about my damaged driveway, eat less hamburger helper, go out with friends occasionally, buy textbooks, buy gas, or buy new glasses since these are several years old. It’d be like a raise since I’m not going to get one this year because the economy tanked.
