In regards to health insurance, I think most people are in a position to afford it, they just choose not to.

I grew up in a poor family, where any pocket money I received was from a job of my own. My mother was sick from when I was 11 until she died. We had no health insurance and certainly not enough money to afford my college. Luckily in Australia university is paid up front by the government, but is repaid with taxes through your life. Health insurance is a bit of money but worth it, from all the horror stories I hear and see.

By the time I was old enough and wise enough to realize, I put money into health insurance every month with at least the peace of mind to know it would save me a lot of money if the time came, even if nothing happened to me. That in itself is worth the money.... and you know what? If someone can afford a Friday night of drinking each week, they can afford health insurance. Simple as that. I'd give up beer altogether if I knew I'd be covered (for the most part) if anything happened to me.
