Republican Congressvarmint Michael Burgess is an old white man who represents north Texas. He is very afraid of the Affordable Care Act. He’s just almost sure that it’s a tool of the devil. So, he got butt cement sucking scared on opening day when a boatload of people went to the website.

“I think if you subtract out members of Congress and their staff and reporters who called in those first 48 hours the numbers will be considerably lower,” Rep. Michael Burgess (R-TX), who is also a medical doctor, told CNN. “We will have an opportunity to dissect these numbers in our subcommittee of oversight investigations later this month or next month.”

Oversight investigations? What the hell?

Okay, I counted the members of congress and members of the press who might give a flip about it and and I didn’t even come up with 5,000, much less 6 million.

And we’ve been trusting this man with our money. He cannot freakin’ count.

Can you help us out?
