Right, when the Lawmakers get inconvenienced or treated like the rest of us, they change the laws (or have the power/connections to get the process started)
Now, let's make them give up their nice cozy pension plans and medical care plans, all taxpayer subsidized, which in many cases includes their Family members, for life. Make them use the same pool of resources the common man has, deductibles, co-pays, waiting periods. Let them see $$$ coming out their pockets, not just for the same cost of the monthly premiums we have to pay, but have them dive into their pockets when they get the prescriptions, like we do. I want to see their reaction after paying their premiums, and they now find out the have to meet their deductibles, otherwise it's *dig into your pockets again* to pay those.
Both the pension plans and the medical plans are taxpayer paid, why can't we all get a sweet deal like that, it's our money?!?!?
You say the Government can't run a good health care program, have a look at the Military. Not saying the men and women who serve our Country don't deserve it, I'm saying we do too, since we pay for it, ON TOP OF OUR OWN COVERAGES.....
Yeah, make 'em eat their own dogfood!
