Strip Congress of their Socialized Medicine

We the people pay for a national health service plan for our employees in government from the local level up to the national level. Government insurance is paid for by taxpayers to those we elect to represent US. They gladly take it. People who work in government are given their health insurance by US, the taxpayers, as part of an incentive to do a good job for US. People who are "civil servants" are eligible for government insurance WE provide. They gladly take our socialized medicine for themselves yet deny it for the rest of us as "socialism" and anti-American. For the rest of us they advocate that we buy insurance from for-profit companies who deny us care when we need it most. They accept large campaign contributions from insurance companies and pharmaceutical companies. WE mean nothing to them because we're not big donors.

I'd love to hear Congressional members' stories (including all their staffers) about how they were denied health care by "the government". I'd love to hear how they were forced to have abortions and forced to appear before death panels. I'd love to hear how they couldn't get the medications they need by their taxpayer funded insurance. I'd love to hear why they don't believe that WE are worthy of the same coverage we provide for THEM.

Why don't these folks support the insurance industry they love so much instead by buying for-profit insurance? Most of the people in Congress are wealthy enough to afford what we can't, yet they take welfare from us.


Senate Finance Committee:

Max Baucus - age 68 Chairman - 39 years with taxpayer funded insurance
"Chuck" Grassley - age 76 - 51 years with taxpayer funded insurance


Jay Rockefeller age 72 - 32 years with taxpayer funded insurance
Kent Conrad age 61 - 35 years with taxpayer funded insurance
Jeff Bingaman age 66 - 31 years with taxpayer funded insurance
John F Kerry age 66 - 37 years with taxpayer funded insurance
Blanche Lincoln age 49 - 25 years with taxpayer funded insurance
Ron Wyden age 60 - 31 years with taxpayer funded insurance
Chuck Shumer age 61 - 35 years with taxpayer funded insurance
Debbie Stabenow age 49 - 28 years with taxpayer funded insurance
Maria Cantwell age 51 - 17 years with taxpayer funded insurance
Bill Nelson age 67 - 33 years with taxpayer funded insurance
Robert Menendez - age 55 - 23 years with taxpayer funded insurance
Thomas Carper - age 62 - 34 years with taxpayer funded insurance

Orrin Hatch age 75 - 33 years with taxpayer funded insurance
Olympia Snowe age 62 - 34 years with taxpayer funded insurance
Jon Kyl age 67 - 23 - years with taxpayer funded insurance
Jim Bunning age 76 - 32 years with taxpayer funded insurance
Mike Crapo - age 58 - 26 years with taxpayer funded insurance
Pat Roberts - age 73 - 42 years with taxpayer funded insurance
John Ensign age 51 - 13 years with taxpayer funded insurance
John Cornyn age 57 - 24 years with taxpayer funded insurance

If Congress believes that government insurance is socialism why do they accept it for themselves? They say they detest socialism in any form. If they hate it so much, why don't they refuse the socialized medicine we the taxpayers provide for them?

Why don't they stand up and fight for their beloved insurance companies instead by getting their insurance from THEM instead of from US? They do what the insurance companies want them to do, they refuse to do what WE want them to do. They even want to TAKE Medicare away from our older population. They take it for themselves, though. They need to be punished by US and handed over to the vicious insurance companies for their own medical needs instead. They need to put their money where their crooked mouths are and support K Street right back, buy their own health insurance just like the rest of us.


It's time to strip Congrss of the same insurance they deny their constituents. Perhaps then and only then will they start to show some justice for all instead of only for themselves and their rich friends.
