A Tea Party candidate for Idaho’s House of Representatives defended himself against allegations of hypocrisy following an NBC News article in which he admitted to signing his entire family up for Medicaid while running on a platform that calls for the dismantling of all government programs.
"I don’t think that the government should be involved in health care or health insurance," Greg Collett, 41, of Caldwell told NBC News earlier this month.
Collett, a self-employed software developer by trade, went on to note that his ten children — two biological, eight adopted — are all recipients of health insurance through the government’s Medicaid program, and acknowledged that "there are a lot of people out there that’ll cry foul" over the dissonance.

As always my Congressman was awesome. A very powerful and educational moment in history that every household, every organization, every church and simply everyone who love people need to see so they can understand what is going on in Washington DC.

But if for some reason you don’t understand what is going on in Washington and how the Re Re Re Publicans have and continue to destroy this country, then I don’t know what will.
When I think about all that my Congressman said one thing comes to mind, "Ignorance will never end. Even those with money can’t buy SENSE!!" Author: Curmilus Dancy II The Political Agitator
