ONE MORE TIME
Comment & Observation
By Joe Lee III
Billions of words have be uttered and written in the past couple of weeks about the failed attempt to correct the flaws in ObamaCare.
The solution is simple.
Congress needs only to pass a law that all citizens are covered by the same health care that Congress has, for the same cost to the individual.
We sent the following letter via U.S. Postal Service and e-mail on March 28.
An Open Letter To
U.S. Senator Thad Cochran
Dear Sen. Cochran,
Please send a copy of the medical benefits package provided to U.S. Senators and U.S. Congressmen.
Please advise as to what the monthly charge is to each Senator and Congressman.
Please provide an estimate of the total cost of this program to taxpayers.
Please consider this an official Freedom of Information (FOI) request. If it needs to be forwarded, please send it to the appropriate person and advise me.
