From the “You Can’t Make This @!$# Up” file:
According to Glenn Thrush of Politico, Harris created a stir at the orientation meeting by demanding to know why he had to wait a month after he was sworn in in January for his government-subsidized health care to kick in.
That’s right, incoming Republican Rep. Andy Harris, who campaigned on repealing health care reform, just can’t wait to get his hands on his government health insurance.
After responding in a huff, he even asked if there was some way he could buy into the government care in advance, seemingly thinking there might be a government program similar to the so-called ‘public option’ championed by progressive Democrats in 2009.
Yeah, there are no words.
