The ugliest lil’ troll in Trolltown

GAH! Jesus Henry Waxman is one fugly legislator. He’s also a maroon:

Victor Schwartz, a tort law expert at Shook, Hardy and Bacon in D.C., said that Waxman sees trial lawyers as positive agents of change.

“He sees tort law as a regulatory engine that’s needed just beyond legislation. He sees trial lawyers as heroic who are there to help the ordinary people,” Schwartz said.

See, Waxman put a provision in Obamacare that allows Medicaid patients to SUE if they don’t get to see a doctor. So states are already struggling to come up with money to pay doctors now, fewer and fewer doctors are willing to take Medicaid patients because they get underpaid for them. Obamacare throws a bunch of new patients into the mix, and Waxman’s solution is for heroic trial lawyers to suck squizillions more out of the system.

I don’t know enough cuss words to describe how dumb that is.

Waxman has been in Congress 18 terms, since 1975 (before he was in government he was — awwww, you guessed it — a lawyer). He represents California, so there’s no chance tea party fever will sweep him out of office. In fact, near as I can tell, he’s running unopposed.

According to his house.gov site, Waxman represents Agoura Hills, Beverly Hills, Calabasas, Hidden Hills, Malibu, Santa Monica, West Hollywood and Westlake Village, Pacific Palisades, West Hills, Canoga Park, Bel-Air, Century City, Westwood, Brentwood, Topanga, Chatsworth, Woodland Hills, Beverlywood and West Los Angeles.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t that serious, SERIOUS Beautiful People territory? I think our best hope is some kind of “Oh. My. GOD! How could you vote for such a hideous little boogery troll? I feel, like, fifty percent uglier just looking at him.”

Eh. Worth a shot.
