House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) will be thrilled to learn that, while not many people employed in the fields of “photographer or writer” have come forward to sing the praises of Obamacare, it is very popular among another group of self-employed Americans: Hookers.
“And just think, that you could be a photographer or writer,” Pelosi proclaimed in March, “start your own business, be self-employed, as well as change jobs or start a business and not have to be constrained by whether you had affordable and accessible quality health care.
“That’s what this legislation does,” she said.
According to Nevada’s KRNV-DT, the independent contractors who work as prostitutes at the Moonlight Bunny Ranch are very fond of the Obamacare legislation.
Prostitute Taylor Lee said that on top of her being a sex worker, she had a preexisting condition which also led insurance companies to deny her coverage in the past.
“Having this profession, we aren’t exactly offered group health insurance. It’s hard because I do have a pre-existing condition so I really support Obamacare. I’m excited,” she said.
Another prostitute, Bella Dawn, said that when she pulled out of her previous employment situation to become a legal prostitute, her insurance provider dropped her.
“I switched professions and I wrote it down and they denied it because of the profession I’m in,” she told the news station.
Caressa Kisses, who also works at the Bunny Ranch, agreed that she and her co-workers are hard up for insurance, “They equate us to illegal working girls who have very high STD’s and AIDS rates which we have none of the above. We’re legal, licensed prostitutes.”
Kisses went on to note, “I see the doctor every week because it is state mandated. We’re tested weekly and monthly for blood. We have to be cleared by health professionals and a physician to work in the house.”
Overall, the girls at the Bunny Ranch feel that the President nailed it with his healthcare overhaul.
“I’m very excited about being able to get a health plan now because of Obamacare,” said Amy Page.
Kisses added; “We’re independent contractors. We have to get our own insurance but this is truly a blessing. I hope they work the kinks out and that affordable health care happens for all because it is really needed.”
Their employer on the other hand, believes that the President’s healthcare overhaul is rife with dysfunction.
“I have mixed feelings. I’m glad the girls are going to be able to get affordable healthcare coverage but as a businessman, I’m really concerned,” said Dennis Hof, who owns the Bunny Ranch as well as a number of other brothels, a strip club, restaurants and a truck stop.
He added, “There’s one common thread. I’m the sole stockholder but because I’m the owner for all these different businesses, they lump them together. What am I going to do? I’m either going to have to spend a lot of money on health insurance because the rates are going up or I’m going to have to face severe penalties, so I’m really perplexed about all of this.”
Hof also extended an invitation to the Bunny Ranch to President Obama and noted that he could probably hook the President up with a webmaster who could fix the healthcare website.
