Care needed for those with limited insurance

Published 10:53 am Wednesday, January 30, 2013

My name is Ron Bandel and I live in Brownsdale, Minn. I’m retired and make $494 a month. I pay $475 a month for rent, so I get Minnesota state health insurance. I’m in need of some dental work.

I called every dentist in Austin and not a one could take state insurance, and I can’t afford going anywhere else to get dental work done.

Thank goodness I have a girlfriend who helps out with rent and other expenses. It’s really too bad this great country of ours is built on so much greed. I’m 64 years old and my girlfriend is disabled; we barely make ends meet the way it is.

It’s too bad the residents thought it was more important to improve the hospital instead of putting in a free clinic for people who have no insurance or state insurance, something like a dental and medical clinic.
