MEDICAL: Walk the talk

Print Article

Could it not be any simpler? Have ALL our politicians forfeit ALL their medical benefits immediately. Stop all the talking and gesturing. Since they are all elected by we the people, then it is time they started taking care of WE THE PEOPLE. Start by writing a medical program for all Americans. That means the politicians participate in the exact same programs they give to us. Nothing more, nothing less. Do you think they would screw themselves?

Then they can start taking care of the SSI, Medicare and veterans. No defunding of health programs. No defunding of Planned Parenthood. Let the politicians participate in retirement programs like they make us. It’s time they learned how we are forced to live on limited incomes.

Time for them to PAY their way like the rest of us. Then after they have to pay the higher medical and pharmacy bills, maybe that lightbulb might light up in their heads and really think something needs to be done for the American public and not just for their own profits and advancements.
