Bunny Ranch Sex Workers Praise Obamacare

-By Warner Todd Huston

The prostitutes of Nevada’s Bunny Ranch love Obamacare. But if a recent interview with them are any indication, they don’t seem to have a clue what it is all about.

The prostitutes appeared on Reno’s KRNV TV full of praise for Obamacare ladled on as thick as their makeup. At least two of the girls were gushing about how great Obamacare is and how they fully support it.

She calls herself Caressa Kisses. No, really.

One girl, amusingly going by the name Caressa Kisses (not her real name. I know, you’re shocked), told the media that she is classified as a sex worker so insurance companies consider her job high risk for sexually transmitted diseases (like, totally) so she can’t get insurance cheaply.

Another girl was excited because she has a “pre-existing condition,” though she prudently didn’t say what that might be. I’ll bet we can guess. Athlete’s Foot, right?

Taylor Lee has a “pre-existing condition.”

But here is something that these girls simply don’t understand. Oh, sure, they will be able to get healthcare under Obamacare, but it will cost them thousands and thousands more than they now pay and they also won’t qualify for any government subsidies, so they’ll have to pay the full boat.

You see, you only get subsidies if you make much less than the average American income (which is just over $50,000 a year).

The official poverty rate for a single person is only $11,500 a year. For a family of four it is only $23,500. Now, Dennis Hoff, the owner of the Bunny Ranch, has said that the Bunny Prostitutes can make $50,000 in a month, much less a year. But even if they did only make the national average they make far too much to qualify for any subsidy as a single person.

So, for all the wonderfulness that is Obamacare, it will cost these girls many thousands more than they think.

Let’s see how great they think Obamacare is when they find out how much it’s going to cost them!
