But, John, Don’t You Have Anything to Say About the Government Shutdown?
Oh, I’m pretty sure most of you know how I feel about it. At this point, saying anything about it feels almost redundant. For those of you who don’t know, just imagine me rolling my eyes at the House GOP so hard that I’ve bruised my optic nerve. That’ll do it. I might say more about it later, but for now: Dumb. Just dumb.
I will note, however, that healthcare.gov, the site to go for the latest information about the ACA and how you can participate in it, is actually up and running just fine. If you’re curious if (and how much) money it will save you on medical insurance, you should go check it out. I’ll note we are fortunate enough to have pretty good insurance through Krissy’s work, so this isn’t something that affects us directly. But I know lots and lot of people — freelance writers in particular — for whom this could be a useful thing. Whatever your politics, consider your financial bottom line. It’s worth seeing if it will work for you.
