More of this, Democrats:
Republican lawmakers who oppose the Democrats’ health reforms should give up their taxpayer-subsidized health insurance and pay for their own coverage, say a group of progressive House Democrats.
In a letter to soon-to-be House Speaker John Boehner and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, the Democrats urged Republicans to stick to their principles opposing government-run health care and give up their own congressional health care plan.
“You cannot enroll in the very kind of coverage that you want for yourselves, and then turn around and deny it to Americans who don’t happen to be Members of Congress,” wrote Rep. Joe Crowley (D-NY). “If your conference wants to deny millions of Americans affordable health care, your members should walk that walk.”
Pathetically, only four House members signed this letter. Every single one of them should sign it. To make things easy for the dimmer bulbs in the caucus, Heath Shuler and company can just put an X where he is supposed to sign.
Additionally, I would like to take this opportunity to invite every teabagger, every protester at the Health Care town halls, and every blue hair who voted for Republicans to take the time to opt out of their Medicare. I mean, if you want government out of your health care, there is an easy way for you to start.
