This Kaiser Family Foundation documentary, "Snapshots from the Kitchen Table: Family Budgets and Health Care," profiles several American families who are struggling to make ends meet. It depicts the narrow financial ledge on which millions of low- and middle- income working households stand even in normal economic times, and illustrates the central role that health care costs and coverage play in a household's economic stability. Some of the families profiled have health insurance, others do not.
