Openly gay comedian and Belmont, N.C.-native Fortune Feimster, along with her fabulous PFLAG Gaston County mom Ginger, were featured in an MSNBC clip with commentator Jonathan Capeheart, who also has family in North Carolina. Capeheart was out and about interviewing folks on their understandings of the Affordable Care Act, or “Obamacare.” Fortune and her mother are featured at the beginning of the video, but be sure to keep watching; near the end a man (oddly) claims that his taxes went up and that the IRS sent him a bill for $4,000 and said it was to help fund Obamacare. Anyone else receive an Obamacare bill? We’d love to see it!
