It's jaw-dropping, inexcusable and reprehensible, and the fact it was published speaks to poor decision making up the line at the Post-Gazette.
Side note: "Bruce Jenner, hunky Olympian turned femme fatale, is the elephant in the room for conservatives, and that’s not speaking figuratively." Yes, it is! Caitlyn Jenner is not an actual elephant.
"Trok, 31, wants health insurance; trouble is, she doesn't know exactly what her income is. That's a common problem for all sorts of freelancers, whose income typically derives from multiple sources and can vary wildly year to year."
I am also self-employed. When I signed up at healthcare.gov, the site judged my income, for the purpose of subsidies, by what I had made the previous filing year, 2012.

It was very simple and now I am covered at a fabulously affordable rate. Socialism is pretty sweet.
