The fact that our Senators and Representatives and President are covered by a comprehensive health care plan designed especially for them and their families gives them a sense of privilege that distances them from the real world experience of living with the nuts and bolts of the average (not the extreme case, as is so often argued) Medicare recipient. ALL Medicare recipients (present and future) deserve representatives who understand as fully as possible the realities of these programs and have no easy temptation to distance themselves from the real live, in the neighborhoods and on the streets living and breathing people.

Here's an attempt to get a sense of what doesn't get seriously discussed on the Sunday morning talk shows. How can they decide if they have no real skin in the game?


Congress and their employees ought to be covered by the same plan as Medicare recipients
