First of all, Happy Birthday United States.  Second, Wednesday holidays stink.   And now today’s 236th Anniversary jackass:

GOP congressional candidate Chris Collins knows health care is expensive these days, but he argues it’s for good reason: People are no longer dying from deadly forms of cancer…

“People now don’t die from prostate cancer, breast cancer and some of the other things,” he told The Batavian in an interview that was flagged Tuesday by City & State NY. Collins was discussing his desire to repeal Obamacare.

This not dying thing comes as pretty good news for the 68,000 people who died from breast or prostate cancer last year.

But maybe what Mr. Collins meant is that those can afford medical care because they have good insurance do not die, you know like people wealthy enough to run for Congress.

Here’s what I would like Mr. Collins, fewer candidates who proclaim they “love America” but do not seem too crazy about “Americans”.
