The Twitter world was ignited recently when the wife of a South Carolinian congressman (a Democrat, obviously) had the gall to tweet her anger concerning her “gold” healthcare plan.
Her issue was that the plan did nothing to reimburse her for her numerous therapy sessions or marriage counseling to her congressman husband, Joe Cunningham (Dem-S.C.).
From the Washington Free Beacon:
Democratic congressman Joe Cunningham’s wife is furious that their taxpayer-subsidized healthcare plan declined to pay for therapy sessions, according to a rant on an insurance bill she posted on Instagram.
The South Carolina Democrat is currently serving his first term in Congress, where members are given access to Obamacare “gold” plans from Blue Cross Blue Shield and are responsible for paying about a quarter of the premiums. The plan is apparently not good enough for his wife, Amanda Cunningham, who told her Instagram followers she would be urging her husband to do something about it.
“I’m gonna have a little bit of a rant here on social media because I think this is important,” she said on her Instagram story last week. “I’ve been going over my not-a-bill bill here from Blue Cross Blue Shield, and realizing that once again, all of my mental health therapy sessions are denied, in addition to all of our marriage counseling sessions.”
“It’s just mind-blowing to me that these basic well-known needs, that mental health is health care, are still being denied, that we’re still fighting for these absolutely basic things, it’s unbelievable to me,” she said. “So I’m reaching out to my congressman—yes, also my husband—but saying, like, hey, what can we do about this? Let’s go to the House floor, let’s write a bill, I don’t know what you do, but let’s do it because this is ridiculous.”
“This affects us, our family, it affects everyone else who’s seeking mental health and needs support doing so,” she concluded. “I’m just flabbergasted.”

Interesting. So while Mrs. Cunningham is complaining due to the costs associated with what her healthcare doesn’t cover, she is also demanding more services be added to the plan?
Does this make any kind of sense? At what point did people stop learning that money doesn’t grow on trees?
Or is she just expecting that all of the less fortunate blue collar workers should have to foot the bill for her marriage problems to the lucky Mr. Cunningham?
It would be bad enough if it was just this ungrateful Democrat to deal with. The sad state of affairs in the new socialist order is that she is not alone in her hypocrisy.
From the Federalist:
Amanda Cunningham’s comments echo claims by Democratic lawmakers like Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and Rep. Cindy Axne (D-Iowa) about the problems with their health coverage. For many members of Congress that comes via Obamacare-compliant policies sold on health insurance exchanges.
The comments raise one obvious question: If Democrats don’t like Obamacare plans for themselves, then why did they force all Americans to buy this insurance under penalty of taxation? But beyond demonstrating the bipartisan dissatisfaction with Obamacare, Amanda Cunningham’s story illustrates the larger problems plaguing the American health care system.
Methinks the “larger problems” plaguing the American healthcare system is the Democrats who created the monster in the first place.
