A conservative Maryland physician elected to Congress on an anti-Obamacare platform surprised fellow freshmen at a Monday orientation session by demanding to know why his government-subsidized health care plan takes a month to kick in.
Really? Aren't you the guy whose website says this:

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.
What indeed? Whatever will you do for health insurance for those 28 days? I would think you would be grateful that at least for those 28 days, you would be free from the oppressive tyranny of government-run socialist death-panel healthcare.
How awful it must be for you! I can't think of anyone else who has ever faced such a daunting. . . oh, wait. I can think of about 51 million people who could empathize.
