1999 Chrysler LHS • 6 cylinder FWD Automatic • 170,000 miles

I have a 1999 chrysler LHS, and the ingnition won't turn when I put the key in. Thinking the key I had may have been worn down from use I tried the spare key wich had barely been used and still nothing. I can eventualy get it to turn if I sit for 5-10 mins jiggling the key back and forth but the problem is getting worse. Is there any temporary fix I can do till I have money to replace the switch? Or is there another problem I need to look at? Any assistance in this matter would be greatly apreciated.
