This is pure and total bullshit

WASHINGTON — If House Speaker Paul Ryan comes down with the flu this winter, he and his security detail won’t be screeching off toward the closest CVS for his Tamiflu.

Instead, he can just walk downstairs and pick up the pills, part of a little-known perk open to every member of Congress, from Ryan and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell down to the newest freshman Democrat.

Nearly every day for at least two decades pharmaceutical drugs have been brought by the carload to the Capitol — an arrangement so under the radar that even pharmacy lobbyists who regularly pitch Congress on their industry aren’t aware of it.

    Meanwhile, the rest of us are trying to make the best of this confusing cluster fuck known as “Obama care”, laying awake at nights wondering where in the hell is the money going to come from to pay for multiple medications, you need to take. And experiencing the shock of having to spend a co-pay of $5000 (give or take) before your health insurance kicks in.
    My PO meter spikes out and my blood boils every time I think of that bat shit insane Nancy Pelosi’s comment of (regarding the ACA): “We have to pass this bill, so you can find out what is in it”.

      Yeah, I saw that part where Congress pays $600 a year for insurance. Fuck, if I could afford it mine would cost that much a month which is why I haven’t had insurance since I retired 18 months ago.

        No insurance for me either for the past two years. They can kiss my ass with trying to force this shit on us.

          I didn’t have to pay the fine penalty last year but I figure until it piles up to $6000, it’s cheaper to pay that than buy the insurance that I couldn’t use anway because the fucking deductible is through the roof.

    More of the “Fuck the peasants” Washington D.C. Beltway Politician’s Club. Personally I hope they all die (Republican, Democrat & independent) from anal cancer. The sooner the better. I never fucking never voting again. Voting in America is like trying to inserting your dick into and impregnate your liver filled sock.

  8. FriscoKid says:

    Honest question.
