  •  He's probably just too cheap to pay the COBRA.... (0+ / 0-)

    ...it is very expensive, especially if you have a really good plan with lots of benefits as he probably does at Hopkins. Also something else that no one picked up on is the fact that when he said "not my family, I have insurance." he seemed to be implying that he had private insurance which he could keep if he wanted. But he has his employee health care which he will lose when he quits unless he gets Cobra. And this applies to ANY member of Congress who also had employee health insurance. Those with private insurance would just keep what they had until the benefits kicked in. So that too was a weasel answer. He could have only been asking for himself.
