Aniston's special note to a senator

(CNN) – Sen. Mark Kirk received well wishes from across the political spectrum after suffering a stroke in 2012, but on Thursday the Illinois Republican showed off a 'get well' note from far outside the Beltway.


A spokesman for Kirk said the senator doesn't know Aniston personally.

In January, Kirk returned to the Senate to cheers and applause from fellow senators, who lined up to watch their colleague mount the steps leading to the Senate chamber.

Kirk's return to Washington marked a new milestone for a man who participated in intensive walking studies as part of his physical therapy. He had to re-learn how to walk after suffering a severe stroke to the right side of his brain in January of 2012.

    OK, Obamacare. Up on the table. It's time for your annual physical. Three years old, eh? ... I can see one problem already. Have you seen these tax hikes? Let's see - five, 10, 15, 18 tax hikes in all. ... It all adds up, Obamacare. It's not healthy. Hate to tell you this, but it gets worse. See this? That's the number of people who are going to lose their current health insurance because of you. Not thousands, but 7 million, according to the Congressional Budget Office. ... Wait. Obamacare, didn't you say that nobody who liked his current plan would lose it? Yes. You promised it, in fact - repeatedly. I'd better note that in your chart. You may be getting uncomfortable, but we're not done yet. Over here, there's another serious problem: You're hurting hiring.... There's more. It's a good thing you're sitting down. It turns out you're making it more difficult to access Medicare services. ... Finally, I see that insurance premiums are going to skyrocket under you. It's those coverage mandates you put in place; they're the culprit. ... You can pay the receptionist on your way out. No, I'm afraid we don't accept that insurance plan anymore

    Yeah, how nice for Jennifer.

    I am one of Senator Kirk's constituents. I have sent him two e-mails about upcoming legislation issues and have yet to hear from the good Senator. Guess my problem is that I am not a celebrity.
