Why Are Government Members Getting Unlimited Healthcare for Life?

In the U.K., a ten-years-old girl named Sarah Murnaghan is dying of cystic fibrosis and can't get a lung transplant because the government regulations there won't permit it.

That's right, the government in the U.K. decides if you can get medical care or not.

Actually, we have a similar system here, where access to medical care is blocked unless one goes through an endless set of hoops with referrals and permissions and the correct medical insurance coverage.

Of course, our government's legislators and employees have far better insurance and healthcare than the rest of us. Senators, members of Congress and the rest essentially have unlimited health coverage at no cost to themselves, for life.

That's right, YOU pay for these guys pretty much no matter what the costs or problem.

Meanwhile, everyone else dies.

Quite frankly, I don't know of anything more expendable than a member of government. Easily replaced and pretty much not worth the money at any time in their careers.

Unless it's the money paid out by private interests to bribe their way into writing their own legislation.

Time to place the government on the same health system the rest of us DON'T live with.
