Retired stripper Scott Brown does not care for Nobummercare, no-siree-bob he does not, voting to deathpanel it three (3!) times. But until the Roberts Court finishes having its way with the Affordable Care Act in their basement sextorture clubhouse before leaving its abused and battered body in a roadside ditch, Scott Brown is making sure that his daughters gobble up as many pills, elective surgeries, and inexpensive co-pay office visits as possible:
Senator Scott Brown, who won office vowing to be the 41st vote to block President Obama’s health care law and who has since voted three times to repeal it, acknowledged Monday that he takes advantage of it to keep his elder daughter on his congressional health insurance plan.
“Of course I do,’’ the Massachusetts Republican told the Globe.
Brown is insuring his daughter Ayla, a professional singer who is 23 years old, under a widely popular provision of the law requiring that family plans cover children up to age 26.
Brown said the extended use of his congressional coverage is not inconsistent with his criticism of the federal law, enacted over his objection after he won a special election in 2010, because the same coverage could be required by individual states.
On the campaign trail this year, Brown has said he still wants to repeal the law, which he argues is inferior to the health care law enacted by Massachusetts in 2006.
“I’ve said right from the beginning, that if there are things that we like, we should take advantage of them and bring them back here to Massachusetts,’’ the senator said.
As to whether the federal law should be repealed or rewritten, Brown replied: “I’ve already voted to repeal it. You know where I stand on this. This isn’t news.’’
Seems like someone was getting a little pissy about being asked questions… Free diabetes screening, stat!
To be fair, since Brown is a Commissar from Communist Taxachusetts, his daughters were already eligible for socialist healthcare until they were 24, but since he is a federal employee paid by taxpayers, from the poor states his daughters get extra bonus years of coverage. Suck it, Poors!
The Obama law extended the coverage cutoff for the children of federal employees from 22 to 26, and in Brown’s case will allow him to keep covering his daughter, who graduated from Boston College two years ago this month.
The former “American Idol’’ contestant has worked as a correspondent for the CBS “Early Show’’ and is a professional singer.
Brown’s younger daughter, Arianna, is 21 and graduating after just three years at Syracuse University. She, too, will be able to keep her coverage under the congressional plan through the Obama law.
After Obamacare is buried in a shallow roadside grave and the Brown girls healthcare withers away, they will probably land jobs on HBO’s Girls because they’ll have something to whine about and also because their father is someone famous, which apparently is a job requirement, or so I have heard…
