Dem Congressman: Thanks to Obamacare, Getting Shot by a Madman in a Movie Theater Will No Longer Render You Uninsurable!

One of the tragedy vultures using the Aurora shootings for attempted political gain is Colorado Rep. Ed Perlmutter.

Having previously used the crime that took place in Aurora to call for more gun control, Perlmutter, whose district includes Aurora, is now comforting his concerned constituents by reminding them that if their lives are ever affected by a motivated mass murderer, Obamacare will be there for them:

PERLMUTTER: Affordable Care Act is in place. The Supreme Court approved its terms a couple, three weeks ago. And it will do some things that, in my opinion needed to be done. It will stop the discrimination against people with prior illnesses or injuries, or say some of the folks who were shot in the theater, they would be uninsurable now that they’ve had that wound, but under the affordable care act they can’t be discriminated against starting in 2014.
