  •  I would bet some good money... (0+ / 0-)

    Even though I know zero about her personal bio, I would bet some good money that Shelly Moore Capito doesn't' care herself about getting the Congressional medical insurance benefit because either:

    a) she already gets insurance through her husband and therefore doesn't need it; or

    b) she's so filthy rich that she won't feel the pay cut of losing the insurance benefit that is part of the pay package for Congresspeople.

    Conservatives love the idea of cutting Congressional pay and benefits, since that will mean that only the independently wealthy will be able to afford careers in Congress.
