Oh, the humanity!
Surely gym towels are covered under Obamacare, aren't they?

Apparently not. And that’s bad news for congressmen like Iowa Dem Bruce Braley, who revealed the worst casualty yet of the Obama/Reid Shutdown:

“There’s hardly anybody working down there. There’s no towel service, and so we’re doing our own laundry down there. And we pay a fee to belong to the House gym! So, you know, this is no different than if you’re working at an employer that offers a wellness program. You pay a fee to belong. That’s what we do there.”

Out of touch? You’d better believe it.
Dem Congressman whines that shutdown stops towel service at the Congressional gym. Cry me a river. http://t.co/1dBa785p2c

@kesgardner Don't cry too hard – there are no towels to wipe away your tears.

Uh I pay a fee to go to a gym and I wash my own towels. Derp. Holy out of touch, Batman.

Yep. The government is also withholding death benefits from the families of fallen troops. Will Rep. Braley cry for them?
