Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee Claims Cancellation Notices "Not the Truth"
Christine Rousselle | Nov 15, 2013


Oh, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee.

Despite the fact that thousands and potentially millions of Americans have had their plans canceled due to noncompliance with minimum standards of the Affordable Care Act, that's just no big deal to Rep. Lee.

Speaking to National Review Online (emphasis added):


Representative Sheila Jackson Lee, a Texas Democrat, told National Review Online today that instead of sending out cancellation letters, insurance companies should have told their customers that their coverage was about to get better.

She said she wrote an amendment before the president’s announcement that would require insurance companies to “tell the truth.”

“The cancellation notice was not the truth,” she says. “It should have been: ’We intend to or expect to modify your insurance.’”

Really, Rep. Lee? Really? How else could you possibly describe a letter from an insurance company that blatantly states that their plan will no longer be offered due to Obamacare? It is, in the literal sense of the word, a cancellation letter.

And that's the truth

Constitutions are not designed for metaphysical or logical subtleties, for niceties of expression, for critical propriety, for elaborate shades of meaning, or for the exercise of philosophical acuteness or judicial research. They are instruments of a practical nature, founded on the common business of human life, adapted to common wants, designed for common use, and fitted for common understandings.

Petition to change title from Rep to "Fucktard"
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

You two are just being racist to suggest Rep. Lee is a boneheaded, lying, democratic shill, with the intelligence of a gnat. 000hehehehe

I'm not because I know every bit of that to be true!

She is the state of Texas greatest embarrassment!
