    GOP frosh: Where's my health care?

    ...


    “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.

    ...

    ...


    Harris hammered [Democratic opponent] Kratovil on health care throughout a bitter fall campaign, despite the fact that the conservative Democrat voted twice against the reform package backed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.), a close Kratovil ally....

    I love the irony. Conservatives don't mind taking the free ride, as long as not everyone gets in.

    seems funny that this guy who is apparently pretty well off (being a doctor and all) need the government to "subsidize" his health care. hahaha ridiculous. im sure hes never had to deal with a probationary period where typically for the first 90 days you receive no benefits of any kind. what a jack ass.

    What we pay for Medicare and Medicaid is already more than what we'd pay for Universal Health Care.

    So do government employees. Their pick of the best for profit plans around.

    Probably less out of pocket than you do.

    Not the same as Obamacare.
