Bangor, ME --Area woman Nancy Drew, 51, was relieved when President Obama gave her a chance to go back to her National Health Alliance plan of 50 dollars. She carries the card with her, has for years. It had never paid for anything. She gets minor problems taken care of at the Walgreens walk in clinic.
"I do have a job and income and I do not qualify for many of them complicated plans. And I don't have a computer to sign up."
Friends and neighbors say she spends most of her extra cash at the casino. She goes there with another hairdresser. They work at an independent salon that has no benefits.
