When she was initially asked the obvious question that should have been asked of candidates months ago--namely what, if any, kind of health coverage she has--2nd C.D. GOP nominee Marilinda Garcia sounded like a deer in the headlights. She hemmed, hawed, swallowed and basically told the NHPR reporter it was none of our business.
A day later, her campaign issued the statement that she indeed had health coverage--a short-term, non-Obamacare exchange catastrophic plan that her campaign manager, Tom Szold, said is in place while she runs for Congress. But if she wins, Szold added, she'd be eligible to be covered by the congressional health plan.
Which raises a question: If Candidate Garcia is opposed to government-sponsored health care, as she deems Obamacare, why would it be OK for Congresswoman Garcia to accept government-sponsored health care?
