Oh that wacky GOhP—the Grand Old Hypocrite Party….the ‘h’ is silent—they are just too, too much. Of nothing.
While voting, for the 33rd time to repeal the health care reform law—and voting not once for a jobs creations bill—the Republicans voted to keep their own enhanced medical care.
See, they get healthcare, but many Americans don’t, and the GOhP wants to keep it that way.
Back when Congress passed the health care law, members of Congress were required to get their insurance on exchanges with the rest of the public, but, in voting to repeal that law, the GOhP, and some asshatted Democrats, too, also voted to go back to the old system where the lawmakers get a better health care package than most of the rest of us.
Yup, politics at work, thanks to the GOhP.
And they also voted against a Democratic motion that said members of Congress who support repealing the health care law must also repeal the some of the benefits they already receive, like lifetime care and insurance regardless of pre-existing conditions.
Yup, they get a sweeter deal, while denying many Americans any kind of health care whatsoever.
And the GOhP thought they could sneak in those perks for themselves—while voting yet again to repeal health care reform—but several Democrats videotaped several members of the GOhP—like GOhP budget slashing-goose-stepping, hangdog-looking, Paul Ryan—saying, er, lying by saying, that they didn't vote to protect their own care.
Jesse Ferguson, spokesman for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, referring to the fact that members of Congress are eligible for retirement benefits after just five years, said, “House Republicans refuse to admit they voted to give themselves taxpayer funded lifetime guaranteed health care instead of having the same health care as their constituents. House Republicans didn’t just vote to protect insurance company campaign donor profits this time, they’re even helping themselves to lifetime taxpayer-funded government health care and now they need to be honest with their constituents and admit it.”
Funny, that. The GOhP being honest.
