    Thank you, Obamacare.

    Nancy Pelosi waxed rhapsodic in 2010 as she imagined the benefits of Obamacare: "Think of an economy where people could be an artist or a photographer or a writer without worrying about keeping their day job in order to have health insurance."

    Well, that was the economy we used to have. But as Obamacare begins to kick in, artists, photographers, writers, and other members of the "creative class" who have access to health insurance programs through numerous professional organizations will lose that coverage.


    The Entertainment Industry Group Insurance Trust (TEIGIT) website posts the following notice: "All individual and/or Sole Proprietor Health Insurance will terminate January 1, 2014. This includes plans acquired as Members of our Affiliated Associations & their groups." Those affiliated associations include the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists, the Dramatists Guild, the Graphic Arts Guild, NY Women in Film and Television, and many others.

    Interesting how nobody cares about all their gay brothers in the creative and craft industries who are about to have their insurance cancelled and instead are more interested in debating whether Rachel Maddow is "dumb" or not.
