HR 3235 seems to be a very criminal by Congress. The bill, which was introduced on July 14, 2017 is at this point an unknown other than the title. Yet, the title alone seems enough that the average American worried that Congress is going to destroy health insurance coverage in the United States should be outraged.

What Is In HR 3235?
Don’t know. All we know is the title of the bill and that it has been referred to the House Administration Committee, the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, the House Energy and Commerce Committee, and the House Ways and Means Committee. Wow. Four committees are now working on this bill. Must be important. What is HR 3235?
A clue may be found in the title:
“H.R.3253 – To provide for the health coverage of Members of Congress to be affected if the rate of individuals without health insurance increases.”
It appears that HR 3235 is a protectionist bill aimed at preventing disruptions to Congress’ health coverage should the Repeal and Replacement of ObamaCare goes wrong.
So, let me get this right. Congress can stumble along, failing to act to protect the heath care coverage of the citizens of the United States, but that can get their act together to make sure they are not negatively impacted by their own failures. Wow.
That is audacious. That takes some major juevos. That borders on criminal.
But then, that is the 115th Congress of the United States of America. I didn’t think a Congress could be worse than the 114th, but this new one is demonstrating every day just how much more incompetent and failure-prone 535 people can be when given the chance. Way to go Congress. You have reached a new low. For that, you deserve your own Meme. See right. Any questions?

It is not there yet. It is in four Committees and because of such effort it is clearly important to Congress, but they are not likely to let the voters know what is in it any time soon. Gee, sounds like most of their legislation in recent years.
