Insurance used to be better

I am one of the millions of Americans who cannot afford insurance. And yet, I was a single parent during the ’70s and ’80s working as a secretary. I had insurance during that time. It was a godsend. It was included as a part of my benefits package. Now, people with the same jobs, have to pay out of pocket and it is usually too high for them to maintain. There is something terribly wrong with this situation. Please help. Colleen Marshall, El Dorado Hills
