Ce que j'adore l'ironie...

Ainsi, politico.com nous apprends qu'Andy Harris, un nouvel élu au Congrès américain, un Républicain qui s'est opposé à la réforme de la santé, dans sa séance d'initiation hier, s'est plaint du fait qu'il ne serait pas couvert par l'assurance qui est offerte aux élus fédéraux. Donc, pas d'assurance pour lui, c'est un scandale. Pas d'assurance pour des milions d'Américains qui n'ont pas les moyens de se les payer, pas de problème!

Quelques extrait de l'article de politico.com: GOP frosh: Where's my health care?

A conservative Maryland physician elected to Congress on an anti-Obamacare platform surprised fellow freshmen (...) by demanding to know why his government-subsidized health care plan 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. (...)

Harris, a Maryland state senator who works at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore and several hospitals on the Eastern Shore, also told the audience, “This is the only employer I’ve ever worked for where you don’t get coverage the first day you are employed,” his spokeswoman Anna Nix told POLITICO.

Ah, ce que j'adore l'ironie...
