Congress: If you voted against Medicare/Medicaid you shouldn't accept taxpayer-funded health insurance

Post by jculp49 on Mon Nov 21, 2011 6:21 pm


Hi,

In April, the Republican-controlled House of Representatives has voted to cut Medicare and Medicaid. And now even Democrats on the so-called Super Committee are talking about cuts to Medicare and Medicaid.

Essentially Congress is telling senior citizens and the poor that tax cuts for billionaires and millionaires are more important that providing a health care safety net for our most vulnerable.

But did you know that members of Congress get great taxpayer funded healthcare? In fact, they get one of the best health care plans in the world.

It strikes us as the height of hypocrisy to be accepting government-provided, taxpayer-subsidized health insurance while denying seniors, the disabled and the poor the basic coverage that Medicare and Medicaid provide.

That’s why we’re circulating this petition demanding that members of Congress who voted to cut Medicare and Medicaid stop accepting taxpayer-subsidized health insurance for themselves. If they believe our most vulnerable citizens should buy insurance on the corporate, for-profit market, shouldn’t they do the same?

Sign the petition. Tell Congress: If you don’t believe in publicly-funded health coverage, don’t accept it.

That's why I signed a petition to The United States House of Representatives, which says:

"If you voted to cut Medicare and Medicaid, you must stop accepting taxpayer-funded healthcare for yourself and your family."

Will you sign this petition? Click here:

Thanks! Shocked
