No wonder Congress isn’t concerned about a government health care plan implementing rationing: Members have their own medical staff close at hand, according to ABC News.
And why should they worry about costs? “When specialists are needed, they are brought to the Capitol, often at no charge to members of Congress.”
Staffers at the clinic “described a culture centered on meeting the needs and whims of members of Congress, with almost no concern for cost.” Instead, our “public servants” pay about $500 a year. Actually, it’s better than that — about half paid nothing, and were still served with “the best health care on the planet.”
And you thought that Congress was out of touch with reality? Yep.
Rank has its privileges, eh?
