This poor woman makes $900/mo. and has $437 in prescriptions yet is trying to save money! She should be running the city and Bing should be on medication.

That woman should apply for medicaid.

Medicaid mostly helps those who refuse to help themselves. This woman is trying to stay off the dole. The big thing is she has her rent down to $175/mo.some how. I'm sure she is resourceful in other ways as well.

She is trying to stay off the dole while Congress, Senate etc. are riding high on the dole, and what about foreign countries and big corporations living high on big US dole?

I could game the system a bit too, but I'd have to look in the mirror.
