    She was laid off about a month ago and has two toddler daughters.  She carried the health insurance for the family as her husband's job didn't offer any.  She looked into medicaid or CHIP but alas her family was "too rich" to qualify in Virginia.  

    Now they are talking about moving to Colorado hearing that the job market for the husband might be better out there but I worry about them moving away from the parents who are their last resort safety net.
