A Ringing Endorsement

The punchlines pretty much write themselves:
President Barack Obama has at least one segment of America behind his health care law: the legalized prostitutes at the Moonlight Bunny Ranch.

The girls who work at the Bunny Ranch tell KRNV-TV that it was nearly impossible for them to get health insurance before because of their profession.

“Having this profession, we aren’t exactly offered group health insurance,” Taylor Lee said. “It’s hard because I do have a pre-existing condition so I really support Obamacare. I’m excited.”
I would imagine that Lee and her colleagues have all manner of pre-existing conditions, but let's not prejudge the pre-existing. A colleague of Lee's warns against such assumptions:
Caressa Kisses said that insurance providers equated them to illegal prostitutes who have sexually transmitted diseases.

“We’re independent contractors. We have to get our own insurance but this is truly a blessing,” Kisses told KRNV. “I hope they work the kinks out and that affordable health care happens for all because it is really needed.”
Independent contractors -- so that's what the kids are calling it these days. And working the kinks out is a specialty of the house, one would imagine.

So now we're subsidizing prostitutes. Nice!

There's always been a certain symmetry and synergy between the oldest and second -oldest professions.
