Congressman Takes Credit for Health Reform Project

Three months after voting to repeal the Affordable Care Act, Rep. Scott DesJarlais (R-TN) sent a staff member to a "groundbreaking ceremony to hand over nearly $4.5 million in grant money -- entirely funded by the Affordable Care Act -- for the construction of a community health clinic in Cumberland County, Tennessee," ThinkProgress reports.

The staffer even posed for a photo-op with a giant ceremonial check to local officials.
