Wasserman Schultz says she "earned Cadillac" healthcare coverage

Jay Schorr reports: When asked if average Americans should receive the same quality health insurance as that of their elected officials, Florida Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz told a group of South Florida healthcare workers that she “earned” her benefits, implying that her constituents had not.

“Yes, she really said that,” related Dr. Norman Palgon, a Hallandale Beach-based internist who was in attendance at a forum the Congresswoman conducted last year to garner support for ObamaCare.  The good doctor was none-too-pleased with what he clearly felt was the congresswoman’s imperious attitude.

Wasserman Schultz, 45, who also is Chair of the Democratic National Committee, is a career politician who has never worked a day in the private sector.  She has become a ubiquitous congressional proponent for ObamaCare, appearing on network television news shows extolling the President’s healthcare plan, in addition to serving as chief cheerleader for Obama’s re-election. . . .

The Congresswoman, who faces a reelection battle this November, once again finds herself in a maelstrom of controversy concerning her remark that she “earned” her healthcare benefits. With congressional job approval hovering at a paltry 12 percent, some of Wasserman Schultz’s constituents are asking if she “earned” her annual salary of close to $200,000, along with perks including lucrative retirement benefits, use of luxury government jets, and other congressional accoutrements.

“Politics is the only career this woman has ever had. Her callous comments indicate that she feels her elected position is an entitlement program,” said Jose Rodriquez, an out-of-work, uninsured South Floridian. “Reality check, Debbie. There are 43 million hard working Americans without healthcare insurance who deserve the same coverage you have – for which they’re paying.” . . . [Read Full Story by Jay Schorr]

Editor's Comment: Wasserman Schultz currently represents the Florida's 20th District but redistricting has her re-running for office in the Florida's 23rd Congressional District. If you are tired of "Debbie's" lies, distortions and arrogance as the mouth piece of the Obama controlled Democratic National Party, you may wish to check out conservative Republican opponent Juan Eliel Garcia. Florida's filing candidate deadline was May 7th so additional candidates may be approved upon verification of their signature petitions. However, Juan Garcia is fired up and ready to go.  By the way, I called the Garcia campaign and was pleased to be able to talk directly with candidate Garcia.
