A: It’s not bad.
Q: No, really it’s not.
A: It’s a rental, though. You know, I rent.
Q: It is a rental, but it’s okay.
A: Yeah. It’s only a short term lease.
Q: But it’s okay.
Q: You’re here. (Chuckle)
A: There you go.
Q: Let’s hone in on the Affordable Care Act. A lot of people are; hey, I don’t know what’s going on. There’s this confusion. I hear one thing, I see another thing. There are ads saying that my insurance will go somewhere, you know, in the deep blue yonder. How do we, and I guess passionately, tell them; hey, if you have insurance, you’re cool. If you don’t have insurance we have a better way for you.
A: Well, you did just describe it, but there’s been a lot of misinformation, most of its political, paid for by either the Republican Party, or various conservative groups. But the truth is the Affordable Care Act, Obamacare, is real straight forward. If you’re already on Medicare, if you’re on Medicaid, if your employer provides you with health insurance, you don’t have to do anything. All it does is it provides you more protection and more benefits. For example, insurance companies can’t impose lifetime limits on you, so if you got really sick, or a member got really sick, they couldn’t just cut you off at a certain point. It allows young people, for example, to stay on their parents’ healthcare plan up to the age of 26. So, you know, for a lot of young people, when they first get out of school, they may get a job that doesn’t provide health insurance. Well, now they’re going to be protected. But if you don’t have health insurance right now, or if you’re buying it on the individual market, meaning you just got to go out there and kind of shop, this is going to give you a better deal. Basically you’re going to be able to go to a website, healthcare.gov, or the states are setting up a whole bunch of websites. And you are going to be able to compare the prices that you can get through these plans, and in addition it will tell you the kinds of help you will get from the government to pay for it. And it turns out that in a whole bunch of states people may be able to get health insurance for less than their monthly cellphone bill, which means not only do you get regular checkups, if you’re a woman, you know, that’s particularly important given the need for ongoing checkups. You also have the confidence and the insurance that if you get in a car accident, heaven forbid something happens, you’re not going to lose your house, you’re not going to have to empty out your back account, you don’t have to go to the emergency room. You go to the doctor. You got health services that are high quality. And, you know, I think that a lot of people don’t have to take my word for it. All they need to do is just go and see what this thing offers, the same way that if they’re buying a plane ticket they just go on the Internet and check it out.
Q: Yeah. Last question; my audience is mainly female, single mothers. What can we say to them that would encourage them to go to healthcare.gov, check it all out, and make sure that it works for their family?

9. Apparently my 260lbs is too much for the actual vines in the Hawaiian jungles to hold me without breaking and me falling hundreds of feet. So for safety purposes, I'm forced to swing thru #Jumanjj on wires strong enough to hold 12 adult buffaloes and 1 adult Rock. #OnSet #Jumanji #IronicallyIEatBuffaloDailyForLunch #MoreManThanNatureKnowsWhatToDoWith
