As President Obama threatens to infect America with pus-filled mandates and a nasty, oozing deficit, Republicans are scrambling to position themselves as authorities on health care. They have facts! And talking points, like "dangerous experiment" and "cabal"!
Of course, they also have RNC chairman Michael Steele…
Asked about his health care coverage at the RNC, Steele told CNN, "BlueCross BlueShield, I believe. Or maybe not. I think it's BlueCross BlueShield."
In fact, two sources say it's Cigna that provides the RNC health coverage.
Now, now. There's a very simple reason why Michael Steele doesn't know the name of his health insurance provider. Just give him a minute to explain…
"I haven't had to use the plan too much, thank goodness – although there are days on this job," Steele said.
I think what he means is, Cigna doesn't cover foot-in-mouth disease.
Especially when it's a pre-existing condition.
