Health Insurance Afordability for retiree's

Dear Mr. President:

I am age 64 and retired. I am not eligible for Medicare, and apparently cannot get MediCal as they say I make too much money. I don't make enough money to afford $500.00 plus a month, or even $200. I realize my personal woes are not yours. The fact remains that I am unable to comply with signing up for Obama Care within the deadline. I find myself in the likely position of having to wait until I turn 65.

I am hoping for some enlightenment, and it would be nice to find out if those of us in this position can find help. Please advise me.
