Cognitive Dissonance

"Democracy! Bah! When I hear that I reach for my feather boa!" - Allen Ginsberg

A conservative Maryland physician elected to Congress on an anti-Obamacare platform surprised fellow freshmen at a Monday orientation session by demanding to know why his government-subsidized health care plan from the government takes a month to kick in.

Republican Andy Harris, an anesthesiologist who defeated freshman Democrat Frank Kratovil on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, reacted incredulously when informed that federal law mandated that his government-subsidized health care policy would take effect on Feb. 1 – 28 days after his Jan. 3rd swearing-in.

“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,” said a congressional staffer who saw the exchange.

Yes, congressman. Wouldn’t life be horrible without health insurance? Good thing you’re the only one in the country who will have to do without or find an alternative for 28 days.

Cue privilegedenyingdude?

/facepalm

Guess what? I’ve gone almost 5 years without health care I didn’t pay massively out of pocket for, and I haven’t seen a dentist since 2003. I have a toothache and $0.99 in my checking account. 

Fuck you and GTFO. No pity. None.
