Many folks have decried the fact that our Senators and Congressmen (people) have a gold plated health care package that they don't pay for as they consistently vote against the most minimal coverage for the rest of us. It's SO unfair that the playing field isn't level; it's hypocrisy.
It's so unfair! Senators and Congressmen (people) covered by the Congressional health care plan voting against health care plans and now vowing to repeal Obama Care too. It's so hypocritical.
But one brave man is all about removing that hypocrisy. He's Senator Dick Durbin and he's proposing that the Senators and congressmen (and women) give up their packages. Isn't that GREAT?
But these people are millionaires for whom insurance premiums are mere chump change. So now, they can vote away health care for the masses with a clear conscience; it makes no difference to their bottom line (except for the fact that they get "campaign" contribution$ by the millions from the Insurance "Industry" $87 million last year alone).
There's an old black humor sight gag: A boy with one good hand and one crippled hand wishes that both his hands were the same. His wish is granted and he watches in horror as his good hand withers into a twisted stump.
Be careful of what you wish for.
