Marsh ‘Cheap Shoes’ Blackburn (R-TN) – ‘GOP Moron of the Day’


Via: Raw Story

Rep. Marsh ‘Cheap Shoes’ Blackburn (R-TN) (the NEW, Michele ‘bat-shit insane Bachmann) warned on Thursday that President Barack Obama could soon TAKE AWAY the FREEDOM to PURCHASE CHEAP SHOES if his health care reform law was allowed to stand.

At a House Energy and Commerce Committee on Wednesday, the Tennessee Republican had grilled Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius because the Affordable Care Act had forced insurers to upgrade some policies that did not meet new MINIMUM government standards.

“Some people like to drive a Ford, not a Ferrari,” Blackburn had quipped at the hearing. “And some people like to drink out of a red Solo cup, not a crystal stem. You’re taking away their choice.”



personal thought:

Imagine that, insurance companies having to conform to ‘MINIMUM government standards’.

My Gawd, what will be next, the ‘banking industry’?
