FTA - Many sex workers -- a broad term that can refer to a number of services, including sexual massage, prostitution, and escort and dominatrix work...

So strippers are not considered sex workers? Or are the just 'entertainers'?
 
2013-11-01 10:07:50 AM
Well this is a terrible idea, because those filthy whores aren't people, and shouldn't be treated as such.
 
2013-11-01 10:39:43 AM
Does that include young, male sex workers?

That might be just the thing to bring Republicans to the fold.
 
2013-11-01 10:53:07 AM
Well, that makes sense.

Obamacare is all about filling in the gaps ... in coverage.

Seems appropriate that depraved people would be attracted to something created by a depraved administration.

Surely making sure the dude who spits on your cold cut sandwich and the chick that you pay for sexy times have access to medical care is a good thing for the nation.

Technically, they are catagorized as "models who strip", so they can be fired at will.  A cruel practice.

Coverage for pre-existing conditions.
 
2013-11-01 10:57:30 AM
If healthcare is now available, that might actually mean there's avenues for escape(through a physician) for people who have been slaved through human trafficking.  Luckily, we can count on republicans to end protection for "illegals" in the next few years, so unwilling prostitutes can continue to suffer.
 
2013-11-01 10:57:34 AM
I would think just in privacy concerns alone, sex workers might avoid Obamacare. I mean, their biggest customers are usually politicians, and now politicians can know which whores have the herpes...

Wait, I think I just explained why Obamacare was passed...

It isn't terrible for the sex workers that potentially engage in high risk behavior and now have access to healthcare.

Alternatively, dependent upon how risk pools are apportioned, low risk individuals will now have to pay more as a result of those in their risk pool that engage in high risk behavior.

Can't afford healthcare since 2008 because they live in San Fran? Move, you idiots.

Unlike some people, sex workers aren't all judgemental about the obamacare website constantly going down.

maybe with better health care for these ladies I won't keep getting the clap

$400 is too expensive.  get a second job.  I work a nine to five and help run a family business.  Wonder what her monthly expense on clothes and costume are?

Rent is.  San Fran is generally one of the most expensive real estate markets in the US.  And it STAYS expensive way out into the stix.
 
2013-11-01 11:42:08 AM
Not surprising; the whole point of Obamacare was to help the self-employed. Today, if you don't have a day job that offers health insurance (those have been required, by fiat, for years to ignore pre-existing conditions) it's easy to be uninsurable.

Areas with lower rent generally have lower incomes too.  More at 11.

The Democrat party needs to hurry up and make pro Obamacare commercials using these sex workers and make a commercial.

/It could say something like "If its good enough for a prostitute, it's good enough for you citizen!"

Right wing talk radio was all over it this morning. To them, sex workers really aren't people.

Freepers being freepers:

The Whores of Obamylon.

AZT and the other AIDS drugs aren't cheap; because the freaks work for cash, I guess we'll be paying 100% for them...

Alternatively, dependent upon how risk pools are apportioned, low risk individuals will now have to pay more as a result of those in their risk pool that engage in high risk behavior.


They are definitely going to be a hotbed of pre-existing conditions.

I think it's great that they're getting healthcare, but did anyone notice that the pre-subsidy costs were pretty much the same for Obamacare and private insurance? I hate to point out that it's easy to qualify for low income tax credits when you dont report your income.

/Obamacare, affordable for prostitutes so long as prostitution is illegal

So let's legalize prostitution.

Technically, they are catagorized as "models who strip", so they can be fired at will.  A cruel practice.


Almost all states in the US are "hire/fire at will" by default for all employment without explicit contract. Odds are you're under that same cruel practice, read your H.R. policies and employee handbook carefully.
