Democratic Rep. Hahn: Healthcare law will result in fewer ‘bad marriages’ By Jonathan Easley - 05/09/13 02:45 PM ET

Rep. Janice Hahn (D-Calif.) on Thursday said President Obama's landmark healthcare reform law would result in fewer “bad marriages.”

Speaking at a Small Business committee hearing on Health and Technology, Hahn offered the anecdotal example of a friend of hers who got involved in relationship to gain access to more affordable healthcare.

“It’s an interesting angle, to talk about people who really only have jobs for the health insurance as being one angle to that,” Hahn said. “I had a friend who got married to the wrong person just so she could have heath insurance. So, we’ll also have a lot of less bad marriages as a result of this.”

Is it me or are Democrats and stupid synonymous? Or could it be they assume voters are stupid(which is probably true)and believe their BS utterings?

So her friend married just for the healthcare? Hmmm, sounds sorta like fraud to me. Let’s see if some enterprising divorce lawyers determine if current or future clients have a spouse who knows the Congresscritter.

Obama was not only elected; but RE-elected. Of COURSE it’s true!;)

Is this the same congress that wants an exemption from implementation for its own members and staff presumably?

The question is, who gets exemptions and how can I get one?

There is going top be hell implementing this thing.

Enjoy the stock market rally while it lasts, because all this uncertainty and contempt for government will surely spill over.

“She’s a loon.”

And her constituents will happily reelect her the next time she is running.

Wait a minute. I thought curing global warming would result in fewer bad marriages. I wish they’d make up their minds.

I knew a, um, guy who got this Plantar’s wart on his heel.
It was a little gross, but didn’t hurt and went away in a couple days.
I wonder if critter Janice would find this edifying.

Just another confirmation that low-IQ elected criminals make the old suspicions a reality, that some people are capable of saying anything and delude themselves that they can be taken seriously.

With an even dumber electorate, I suppose that anything is possible.

Since Obamacare was passed there has not been a single case of the Earth imploding. That ought to tell you something.
