Congressman Andy Harris: Furious about Socialized Medicine
Words like “irony” don’t even begin to describe this. Freshman Rep. Andy Harris (R—ArrogantFuck) is having a hissyfit over government-paid health care. But it’s not what you think. He’s having a tantrum because he just found out that His OWN socialized medical coverage won’t take effect until next February.
What’s a wealthy parasite to do???
Andy Harris is an anesthesiologist. In his congressional campaign, he constantly railed against Obamacare and pledged to repeal it. His Democratic opponent had voted against Obamacare, but Harris trashed him for not being “committed” enough and for not promising to repeal it.
And now that Harris has been elected, he wants to have the same government-paid health coverage that he doesn’t want his lowly constituents to have. And he doesn’t want to wait until next February; he wants it Now. NOW. [stamps foot]
Like they say, you can’t make this shit up.
The whole thing came out at a benefits session for new House members and their families. According to a staff member who was present:
“He stood up and asked the two ladies who were answering questions why it had to take so long, what he would do without 28 days of health care….Harris then asked if he could purchase insurance from the government to cover the gap.”
Wait! You don’t mean — No! — the Public Option?!?!?!? You know, that commie proposal that you voted against? Asshole!
After Andy Harris had gotten the earthshaking news that his health coverage wouldn’t start until February, he sobbed:
“This is the only employer I’ve ever worked for where you don’t get coverage the first day you are employed.”
From millions of uninsured workers to Congressman Andy Harris: “We Feel Your Pain.”
