    My dear brother, 55 years old, professional drummer, made an announcement this weekend...

    He's been a drummer all his life- actively on the roster of up to 5 bands at a time to keep steady gigs, getting paid from $50 to 100/night 3 to 5 nights a week (and 5 nights is a good if rare week). Never had health insurance except when he worked in restaurants and that was decades ago... fortunately he keeps himself in excellent shape as he couldn't keep up his job if he slacked off.

    We were gathered at our sisters house for Christmas when he spoke up: "I went on the healthcare.gov website last week and after about 30 minutes filling things out- I HAVE HEALTH INSURANCE (30 minutes huh???)... and because of my meager drummers income- IT'S FREE!!!! And better still- I've decided to dish out $25/month for dental!!!"

    It was high fives all around and a great sigh of relief for all 4 of his sibs! Our baby brother has healthcare/dental starting January!!!!
    No mention of the deductable though...
    May the FORCE be with you!

    or whether or not that the "insurance company" that has his policy actually knows they're covering the DUmbasses brother.

    He probably went on MedicAid. I doubt if most of the income the DUmmie is talking about shows up on the guy's taxes, and the income reported for taxes is what the Obamacrap site uses.

    Over half of all Obamacare signups are for Medicaid, so you're probably right.

    How does the guy survive if some weeks he only earns $150? I assume he is paid cash. So not only is he getting free health care, he is a tax cheat. Be proud DUmmies.

    12. Congratulations to all those who got health insurance for the first time and those


    who saved a bunch of money. I can't understand all the bad press Obama is receiving for this fabulous opportunity for a chance to receive HI even though they had preexisting conditions. No wonder the Rethugs want to destroy it and Obama.

    It really is somewhat hard to believe "these people" are that naive but they prove it every day.

    Honestly, it sounds like a thread that housewife/political operative ProSense would
    throw up on DU but that would be too obvious...

    Old joke...
    What is the difference between a drummer and a pizza?
    A pizza can feed a family of 4.
