Congress should first write a Health Care Reform Bill for themselves, and then make it available to the rest of the country. The concept there are two classes of people in the country, a political class and the great unwashed (us) that have separate and distinctly unequal access to health care, is abhorrent. They are the ones who will get treatment at the Bethesda Naval Medical Center, and we will have VA quality care. There is a difference! The Senate bill specifically exempts Congress and Federal employees from provisions of health care reform they are cramming down our throats. And this provision will be what survives in the final bill. We should accept nothing less than equal coverage for all.
