Obamacare Jokebook

Tim Barry was floored after learning the health insurance plan he had for 20 years was being cancelled because it didn’t meet standards of the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.

Barry figures his co-pays and out of pocket expenses will cost him an extra $3,000 annually, Now, he’s using humor as a form of therapy.  Barry, a former stand-up comic, has written “The Totally Unauthorized Obamacare Jokebook.”  It’s available on Amazon.

He says he’s sold several hundred copies.  Barry believes if he can sell five hundred, it’ll cover his increased health care bills.

Barry owns a Vancouver-based company, “I T I web stores.”   He says he’s also published books poking fun at Microsoft and Enron.
