Texas hold em Tea Party Republican Louie Gohmert will not take that Socialist, Kenyanist shaking hands Communist insurance, he'll do it old fashioned way Pray(that someone takes his ass to a hospital).

From Mother Jones
"I've pledged that I'm not taking the subsidy," he told Politico. "Too many people in my district have lost their insurance because of Obamacare…and because of Obamacare, the remaining insurance is just too expensive. So I'm not going to have insurance, it looks like."

Will Gohmert really forgo the top-flight medical care and become one of the uninsured, crazy question huh?

For a mere $503 a year, members of Congress can get top-flight medical care without a wait, and without ever having to deal with an insurance company. The OAP has on-site primary care doctors, nurses, a pharmacist, and medical and x-ray technicians. When a member needs one, a specialist is brought in from military hospitals and provides services at no charge (except to the taxpayers). Members of Congress also have access to free outpatient care at DC-area military installations, including the Bethesda Naval Hospital and Walter Reed Army Medical Center.
Louie Gohmert is really willing to play GOP ObamaCare syndrome roulette, betting on his health that he can prove people move faster when you fall down and grab your chest. Stay healthy Louie and chant:

I will not get sick,
I will not get sick please
don't prove Obama right God,
it's a political thang God,
for Christian America God,
don't let me get sick God,

Oh my God!

So stay healthy Louie G

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
