No Obamacare, no Second String Music

SHERYL WAS INTERVIEWED for a Herald-Whig story about Obamacare being repealed. The reporter, Matt Dutton, did a good job providing two different views. Click here to read the story.

I'm going to give Sheryl some credit - she doesn't like doing interviews and hates having her picture taken. But she sucked it up and presented her side of the story very well, and it's a point of view people need to know about.

What it comes down to is this - without the Affordable Healthcare Act. however flawed it is, Second String Music would cease to exist. Let me make this a little more clear - We. Would. Not. Be. Here.

Not amusing at all.
If you are going to repeal it, please come up with something that makes our health insurance affordable. Right now, there are several plans floating around out there but nothing that seems to work. And yes, we WORK for a living, Mr. Trump. Just so you know.

It is a complicated topic. Solutions need to fit the needs of 20 million people. Sheryl believes that nutrition is key to good health and level blood sugars. Many medical visits could be reduced if people would eat lower carb, healthy fats, and moderate protein diets instead of the high carbohydrate recommendations of the federal government and dieticians. Ask Sheryl for details if you are interested. She lives it every day.

We are signed up with ACA for another year, so short-term we are fine. But the Republicans will ditch the program as soon as the new regime takes over, and it's anybody's guess what will eventually happen.

And there's nothing we can do but wait, and pray we can still afford to stay in business.


  1. So if we don't subsidize your health care, you can't afford to work? Is that what you're saying?

  2. You were subsidizing it before but just didn't know. But if we don't have affordable health care our music store will not be able to afford to stay open. I can still work, just not as a small business owner supporting your local economy and all the benefits you receive from that kind of local business.
