Rep. Joe Courtney on Congressional Hypocrisy

"In 2006, Courtney promised not to accept taxpayer subsidized health insurance, a privilege offered to all Members of Congress, until all Americans have access to affordable and quality coverage." Congressman Courtney is to be commended for setting a good example. I think they should all have to take that pledge. If it's not good enough for the American people, then they should cancel it for members of congress and their families as well. Let them get out on the street and try to buy an individual policy like the rest of us poor bastards not fortunate enough to have a government or corporate job with paid insurance. They might all decide that reform is in order after all if they got a little taste of what we have to deal with.
