John Boehner Crying 12-22-10

OMG.  House Republicans have voted something like 54 times to repeal Obamacare.  Today, their leader did this:

Boehner Opts for Obamacare Over Medicare

House Speaker John Boehner became eligible for Medicare when he turned 65 years old Monday, but he’s not planning to sign up.

Instead, Boehner is going to keep his “expensive” Obamacare insurance plan.

The Affordable Care Act required members of Congress to get off the federal government’s insurance plan and, in most cases, enroll in an Obamacare policy. When members turn 65, they become eligible for Medicare as well.

When asked at a press conference on Tuesday about his health care coverage plans, he paused and laughed.

“I’ll continue to purchase my expensive health care coverage,” he said in an obvious nod to his Obamacare policy.


In a perfect world this would be front page news all across the country tomorrow.
