On ABC, Obama was asked by Charlie Gibson:
"Mr. President, will you and your family give up your current health care program and join the new "Universal health Care Program" that the rest of us will be on?"
There was stoney silence, with this expression from this "universal health care proponent"...
A number of senators were asked the same question. Their response: "We'll think about it."
The test that we should hold Congress to on any bill they consider passing: Will you agree to forfeit your perk and be covered by what you approve for the rest of us?
If they waffle or say no, KILL IT. If for no other reason to kill the bill, it is because of the special privledge and hypocracy it perpetuates...reducing the health benefits 70% of us enjoy while maintaining the gold plated benefits of the privledged few.
