Cross-posted from State House Call

By John LaPlante

Perhaps you’ve heard that a majority of members of Congress (or perhaps it’s just the House) have turned down amendments that would commit them to any sort of “public option” that they create. Such a jarring juxtaposition (some would say hypocrisy) is nothing new, of course. Rank has its privileges.

Now comes a story from Idaho about privilege and power. In brief, part-time state employees now get insurance subsidies reflecting their part-time rather than a full-time status, as was the case until recently.

But there’s one group of part-timers who get full-time benefits. Can you guess? I don’t think you’ll need more than one try.
