I want to thank all you taxpayers for supporting my new career as a Slumber Artist

I just saw Nancy Pelosi's explanation of Obamacare and it was a revelation:

“We see it as an entrepreneurial bill,” Pelosi said, “a bill that says to someone, if you want to be creative and be a musician or whatever, you can leave your work, focus on your talent, your skill, your passion, your aspirations because you will have health care.”

Golly! Now that I understand what Obamacare really means, I plan to give up working and follow my muse - I am going to become a full time Slumber Artist! A slumber artist is a type of performance artist where the artiste (Moi!) snoozes in various public and non-public places as an artistic statement.  As a matter of fact the rocking chair on the front porch is calling me right now and all I have to do to go professional is put out a basket for contributions with a little sign saying that I am focusing on my talent, skill, aspirations, and passions so toss some spare change my way. Of course, you'll have already paid for my medical care so it's only polite that I also say, "Thanks suckers fellow citizens!"

The only downside of this plan is that I will have to convince the wife, but if she has any complaints, I will just refer her to Nancy Pelosi.
