As it turns out, some people in Congress really are honestly that disconnected from the concerns of the average citizen of the United States; suggesting as such isn’t just a figure of speech.
With the House of Representatives set to vote on the latest incarnation of their plan to repeal and replace Obamacare this Thursday, all eyes are on the Congress, and what the nation is seeing isn’t pretty. Congressional Republicans, as led by Republican Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, have shown themselves willing and happy to potentially cut the health coverage of tens of millions of Americans.
Suggesting that Republicans are happy about what they’re doing isn’t just conjecture.
Speaking on C-Span early Thursday, GOP Rep. Ann Wagner of Missouri cited the movie “Braveheart” to reporters, literally shouting “Freedom!” as she walked into the House.
Watch the video below.
Rep. Ann Wagner’s comments are reminiscent of the recent comments from Paul Ryan about how he’d “dreamed since college” of stripping down the healthcare system.
The fact of the matter is that, no matter how giddy these delinquents want to get, their bill is going to take healthcare away from tens of millions of people should it pass.
That’s not something that a normal human is happy about.
