  •  Rep. Slaughter, I'm asking again . . . (14+ / 0-)

    When can the American people expect health care benefits as generous as those you give yourselves?

    Or should I say Rolls Royce benefits that the taxpayers allow you to give yourselves.

    Representative Slaughter, I know you are on our side, but you must recognize that we deserve the same benefits that you have.

    The American people are not second class citizens.

    Would you accept health insurance from a corrupt company like Wellpoint?

    Do you think it's fair that your fellow citizens risk losing their insurance simply because they get sick and file a claim?

    Ms. Slaughter the Dems must address this.  They must pound it 24/7.

      •  Maybe the bill looks at it the wrong way (1+ / 0-)

        Instead of giving the American people the healthcare available to Congress, how about giving Congress the healthcare—insurance, yes, but also facilities and talent—available to the poorest American in any given year? That would be a potent incentive to fix the healthcare system...

    •  Exactly....Healthcare for all.. (1+ / 0-)

      Until the democrats have the guts to say they will support universal health and quit selling out with "we will help make healthcare more affordable"..bullshit  how can I respect them either?
