Health Care in America
The media is full of dire stories about uninsured Americans, or people who are dying because their existing insurance won’t cover the treatment they need. But now there’s some GOOD NEWS.
There’s a benefit plan which provides complete health coverage. This plan also includes a $25,000-a-year retirement pension and a 401(k) account.
AND this plan is fully funded by taxpayers.
Now, the bad news is: This plan is only for members of Congress. Sorry, the rest of you peons will just have to pull yourselves up by your bootstraps and start taking some personal responsibility.
Hmmm, does Congress have any openings? Talk about a nice cushy job. Sit around all day talking about individual responsibility and railing against the evils of Socialized Medicine, while your own health insurance and retirement pension are paid for by those lowly taxpayers.
Is it just me, or is there just a tad of irony here?
