After narrowly voting to take health insurance away from 24 million Americans on Thursday, do you know how House Republicans celebrated their callous disregard for their fellow man and woman?
With a beer party!
Earlier this year, Speaker of the House and Eddie Munster look-alike Paul Ryan told the National Review that he’s been “dreaming” of capping Medicaid expenses (i.e. healthcare for the poorest Americans) since he used to drink “at a keg” back in college. Hey, I just screwed millions of poor people; drinks are on me!
Cases upon cases of beer just rolled into the Capitol on a cart covered in a sheet. Spotted Bud Light peeking out from the sheet

@ajjaffe Alcoholism is a pre-existing condition but luckily for members of Congress, they excluded themselves from being discriminated against

Thanks a lot, Paul. Hope you get sick and puke on your desk.
