    do they? that's a pretty bold statement.

    i'd think it depends on what coverage you'd have. i know that NYC employees have better health care benefits than the u.s. senate.

    Last night, on the news, they listed the section in the health care plan were it says congress can't have a better health care plan than what we get. It was described as a "little known fact" and was a talking point on the poor job Democrats have done selling this package.

    why do you keep saying 'our' and 'we'?

    YOU are going to have the same veteran's health coverage that every military person has. And if i'm not mistaken, that coverage is better than almost anyone's.

    i don't begrudge veterans their health benefits because you all earned it. but still...

    Indeed. If anyone has the 'right' to 'free' healthcare, it is those who risk their lives for ours.

    YOu alreay have healthcare, you are also exempt from this shit sandwich.
    Why is so hard for people with health insurance to understand that they get to keep their health insurance and their doctor?
