Dem Rep: ObamaCare will totally prevent bad marriages, or something

Via both RCP and my brother Jason Mattera, who played this for me last night while guest-hosting the Jerry Doyle show. Now that people can get their own health insurance through ObamaCare, Rep. Janice Hahn (D-CA) says in a hearing, they don’t have to marry badly for their health … or something:
“It’s an interesting angle, to talk about people who really only have jobs for the health insurance as being one angle to that. I had a friend who got married to the wrong person just so she could have heath insurance. So, we’ll also have a lot of less bad marriages as a result of this,” Rep. Janice Hahn (D-CA) said at a Small Business subcommittee hearing on Health and Technology on Thursday.
So, ObamaCare cures stupidity. Is there no end to its brilliance?
By the way, Jason and I had a lot of fun during the show in recalling our bachelor days, when we used to impress women at nightclubs by talking about the size of our health insurance plans. Unfortunately, that ended up with us arguing about who had the biggest pharmacy coverage, and that just never ends well.
