Irony Isn’t Dead


It is interesting how things work out.

Republican Adviser Faces Health Care’s Costly Bite

Former McCain Strategist is about to lose his health insurance

If history had taken a different course, Doug Holtz-Eakin would be inside the McCain White House driving the Republican president’s domestic agenda, including health-care reform. But now, one year after Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) lost the presidential election, the man who was by McCain’s side as the campaign’s top health-care guru remains unemployed — and his COBRA health coverage is running out.

, it gets worse. Holtz-Eakin, who is about to start shopping for insurance on the individual market, is 51. And he has one of those pesky “preexisting conditions” that insurance companies often cite in denying coverage.

Imagine that.  And how is McCain’s position on health reform?  Ummm…that would be the health insurance companies’ position.  I feel bad for this man’s family, but his party is on the wrong side of this issue and his situation is the status quo that the GOP is fighting to maintain.

Maybe he’ll vote Democrat next time.
