New Weiner Study Shows 151 Members of House and Senate Get the “Public Option” Now

Weiner Calls on GOP Opponents of the Public Option to Give Up Their Medicare

WASHINGTON, DC—A new study by Representative Anthony Weiner (D – Queens & Brooklyn), member of the Health Subcommittee and Co-Chair of the Caucus on the Middle Class, revealed that 151 members of the House and Senate currently receive government-funded; government-administered single-payer health care – Medicare.

On the list of recipients are 55 Republicans who have steadfastly opposed other Americans getting the public option, like the one they have chosen.

Weiner said, “Even in a town known for hypocrisy, this list of 55 Members of Congress deserve some sort of prize. They apparently think the public option is ok for them, but not anyone else.”

The list of congressional recipients of Medicare who also oppose the public option is below:

Rep. Ralph M. Hall,

These 55 are the ones who need to hear from the public they want the Public Option too.

If it is good enough for them it’s good enough for you.

All Americans should have the same “Public Option” their elected Leaders have.

These of course are probably the ones who get tons of money from insurance companies at election time.

Find you Elected Official

How dare they oppose giving it to Americans, when they themselves use it.

Do check the comment on this thread. The poster  has left some very vital information pertaining to this post.

The Bill is 1990 pages long.  It’s long read. They are attempting to stop the pre-existing condition problem,  insurance companies have been using against people.

The Public Option part is on page 211

  2. Here’s a different angle: I’ve just posted on the alternatives in the health-care insurance reform debate, assessing them with respect to federalism. That is, I suggest that we include an assessment of the likely impact on the system of governance itself. If you want to have a look, here is the link:
