Freshman Democrat Rep. Katie Porter. Heard of her?
She recently admitted that getting elected to Congress really, really, really helped erase her medical bills.
Must be nice, huh?
From Free Beacon:
take our poll – story continues below
Congresswoman Katie Porter (D, Calif.,) revealed in a subcommittee meeting that a tangled mess of health care bills she was facing was cleared up when a patient advocate told the insurance company Porter had been recently elected to the House of Representatives.
In a Tuesday hearing titled “Protecting Patients from Surprise Medical Bills,” the freshman representative told her personal story of needing an emergency appendectomy last August. She said she was shocked to get a bill for $3,000 because one of the surgeons was out of her provider network.
Porter noted, “As I continued to fight my insurance company, I kept receiving bills from the surgeon. Eventually, nearly five months after I was hospitalized, the surgeon was forced to simply request payment.”
Porter had also claimed in her remarks that some documents she received in the mail had said her surgeon was in-network, but this matter never seemed to ever be fully factually determined.
Moments later, she said how the entire bill became settled.
She said, “Finally, the patient advocate, invoking the fact that I had just been elected to Congress, was able to get the insurance company to agree to pay my surgeon’s bill.”
Joe Biden said illegal aliens deserve to be taken care of by the American taxpayer.
This is what he believes is a winning strategy for 2020, huh?
Biden noted, “I think that anyone who is in a situation where they’re in need of healthcare, regardless of whether they are documented or undocumented, we have an obligation to see that they are cared for. That’s why I think we need more clinics around the country.”

Remember when Barack Obama said you can keep your doctor? How about all the times he said premiums would drop?
Remember when Nancy Pelosi said we’ll have to pass the Affordable Care Act to see what’s in it?
Yeah. How’d that work out for us?
Now, 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden is saying he has an idea for health care but just “doesn’t have the time” to spell it all out for the American people.
Sure is a good thing he had nothing to do with the last administration attempting to fix healthcare.

Biden is a low-functioning, empty-headed layabout, all qualities that have made him a prominent Democrat for almost half of a century.

If we just passed it we’d have enough time to find out what’s in it
