On being exposed

A newly elected Republican congressman was distressed to find out that his government-funded health insurance policy as a member of Congress won't kick in until February, a month after he is sworn in. He asked: what could he do for insurance in the meantime?

That's an understandable worry. It's a worry that over 40 millions Americans have on a regular basis. The irony is that the congressman, Andy Harris of Maryland, ran as an opponent of the new health care law that will cut the number of uninsured in half. Does Harris have any sympathy for the 40 million uninsured who are exposed to a lot more health worries than he is?
