It’s impossible to make this stuff up.
A teabagging Maryland Republican who just won a U.S. House seat ran on a platform against the new health-care law and promised to vote for its repeal in Congress.
But, Andy Harris was all flustered when he found out the government-mandated health care he gets as a congressman won’t kick in until 28 days after he’s sworn in.
As the Politico Web site reported this week, one congressional staffer said Harris, “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.”
This is the entire point of the health-care bill. People are scared of what will happen if they get sick and have no health-care availability. Andy Harris is scared of what will happen if he gets sick and has no health-care availability.
How do people elect these hypocrites?
