    healthcare.  The US Congress has probably the best healthcare plan of anybody and the taxpayers pay for it.  Personal morality, courage and integrity are easy when you can get whatever care you need while pretending to care for the rest of us and high jack our chances to get some small help.  I hope the Unions and the WFP get his message and fund a primary challenger.

          I'm fairly sure that once you have been one of the magical 535, you get the health benefits for life.

          I could be wrong though.
