“We are the Obama people,” said Camille Sweeney, a New York writer and member of the Authors Guild. Her insurance is being canceled.

As Matthew Bracken said of the Obama people:

Revel in your angst and regret, I will.

It’s the one upside of the destruction of America.

The destroyers too will be slain.

Good riddance.

Get out the Kleenex tissues. New York “professionals” used to have their own “professional association health insurance.” The hell with everyone else, these professional liberals made sure they were taken care of! But their god Obama has put a stop to that!

Liberal New York professionals lose their fancy health insurance thanks to Obamacare.

Many in New York’s professional and cultural elite have long supported President Obama’s health care plan. But now, to their surprise, thousands of writers, opera singers, music teachers, photographers, doctors, lawyers and others are learning that their health insurance plans are being canceled and they may have to pay more to get comparable coverage, if they can find it.

They are part of an unusual, informal health insurance system that has developed in New York, in which independent practitioners were able to get lower insurance rates through group plans, typically set up by their professional associations or chambers of commerce. That allowed them to avoid the sky-high rates in New York’s individual insurance market, historically among the most expensive in the country.

But under the Affordable Care Act, they will be treated as individuals, responsible for their own insurance policies. For many of them, that is likely to mean they will no longer have access to a wide network of doctors and a range of plans tailored to their needs. And many of them are finding that if they want to keep their premiums from rising, they will have to accept higher deductible and co-pay costs or inferior coverage.

“I couldn’t sleep because of it,” said Barbara Meinwald, a solo practitioner lawyer in Manhattan.

Liberalism doesn’t actually work in practice. Liberals are always demanding radical change; they always always know how to do it better, and racist whites should step aside and let their betters run everything!

Now these spoiled children are getting a taste of their medicine!

It is not lost on many of the professionals that they are exactly the sort of people — liberal, concerned with social justice — who supported the Obama health plan in the first place. Ms. Meinwald, the lawyer, said she was a lifelong Democrat who still supported better health care for all, but had she known what was in store for her, she would have voted for Mitt Romney.

It is an uncomfortable position for many members of the creative classes to be in.

“We are the Obama people,” said Camille Sweeney, a New York writer and member of the Authors Guild. Her insurance is being canceled, and she is dismayed that neither her pediatrician nor her general practitioner appears to be on the exchange plans. What to do has become a hot topic on Facebook and at dinner parties frequented by her fellow writers and artists.

At their dinner parties, they have long told each other how morally and intellectually superior they are. What will they talk about now?

    I figure the libbys will do what they’ve done on negro crime; duck and cover. I think they’ll ignore it rather than face reality.

    …who inflicted this in Massachusetts on a smaller less malignant scale.

    Mitt Romney would not have repealed ObamaDontCare.
