Why.............

Do members of Congress get to keep their current excellent insurance plan and can avoid any part of Mr. Obama's forthcoming health care debacle.

How is THAT fair?

  • Why?
    Because they write the laws and thus can make sure that new laws don't hurt them.

    Is it fair? No. But then life often isn't.

    What can you do about it? Let the bums who "represent" you know that if they don't pass a decent, fair healthplan that applies to everyone, then you will do your best to get him or her voted out of office.

    I don't have a medical card.


    For you, insurance IS probably easy to keep.


    I pay for mine, thanks.


    I have Anthem BC/BS, which is very good insurance, IMHO.


    Mr. Obama and his cronies want to gut private insurance companies.

    And Mr. Obama and his crew  wouldn't see that coming!


    Why would employers keep paying for quality health insurance for their employees, when they can get cheap, albeit,  stinky, government  health care?


    They won't, and the fines employers face will be small, because they'll be doing just what Obummer wants them to.

  • Idiots can't see that Obama is doing all he can as quickly as he can to turn us into the U.S.S.A.Then there are those who think it will be just wonderful,sure until it directly effects them in a negative way.I did hear the ratings for his communist take over of ABC last night were laughable.

  • Why doesn't anyone find fault with the employers? You get all mad at government that wants to make sure everyone has access to health care, but you say nothing about the character of the employers who would drop you like a bad habit. Can someone explain that?
