Fools Gold: Artists, Photographers and Writers Losing Coverage Because of ObamaCare

Ben Schachter is a professor of visual arts at St. Vincent College writing at the Weekly Standard:
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.
