“My husband lost his job last week, we can’t afford the deductible & premiums for COBRA, so will be paying out-of-pocket for our life-saving medical prescriptions while also trying to make mortgage payments, keep our car, and eat. With the measly unemployment benefits, we will have to spend retirement money to keep us afloat until who knows when as no one is hiring during a pandemic. 16.3 million in US now unemployed and without affordable healthcare.”
