People are surprised when they learn that congress critters has better medical coverage than Obamacare.
The last person to mention that fact expressed outrage.
Now it appears as if President Donald Trump is threatening to remove that very special privilege.
The Hill is reporting that the President is contemplating playing that trump card.
“If a new HealthCare Bill is not approved quickly, BAILOUTS for Insurance Companies and BAILOUTS for Members of Congress will end very soon!”
Governor Bruce Rauner could put similar pressure on Mike Madigan and the pals he allows to fly to and from Springfield with him by simply threatening to sell the state fleet.Speaking from about 20 years of experience, driving to and from Springfield is brutal.
If the Governor wants to fly, let him buy his own plane, the same way the billionaire Florida governor does.
Of course, all the partisan leaders that their friends would face the same prospect of driving or taking the train.
Illinois state legislators, by the way, are in the same health care plan as all other state employees.
Not that it is not a Cadillac plan, but legislators receive no special health benefits.
