Marsha Blackburn discusses Medicaid expansion

Rep. Marsha Blackburn commented on the idea of Medicaid expansion at a Republican press conference this week reacting to the President's health care letter. Her outfit was fairly unremarkable, but let's have a look at her hair:
The Congresswoman wears her hair with an overlapping part in a style that many of us remember once calling "the Rachel." But something isn't quite right with Rep. Blackburn's version. It's a bit too long in front, leaving too little difference between the length of the layers. The effect is that her hair seems to sit on top of her head, around her face, instead of looking like it's a part of her. Compare to the actual "Rachel:"
This is a great example of why regular haircuts are important even if your style is long. A cut is as much about shape as it is about length.


  1. Prescription Drug Benefit.
    The final version (conference report) of H.R. 1 would create a prescription drug benefit for Medicare recipients. Beginning in 2006, prescription coverage would be available to seniors through private insurers for a monthly premium estimated at $35. There would be a $250 annual deductible, then 75 percent of drug costs up to $2,250 would be reimbursed. Drug costs greater than $2,250 would not be covered until out-ofpocket expenses exceeded $3,600, after which 95 percent of drug costs would be reimbursed. Low-income recipients would receive more subsidies than other seniors by paying lower premiums, having smaller deductibles, and making lower co-payments for each prescription. The total cost of the new prescription drug benefit would be limited to the $400 billion that Congress had budgeted earlier this year for the first 10 years of this new entitlement program. The House adopted the conference report on H.R. 1 on November 22, 2003 by a vote of 220 to 215 (Roll Call 669).
    Marsha Blackburn Voted FOR this bill.

  2. Hi Mickey,
    That's interesting, but did you actually read my post at all, or are you just spamming every blog post that mentions this press conference? The post was about her hairstyle, not the prescription drug benefit. Please don't make me have to start moderating comments already...
