Weiner Calls on GOP Opponents of the Public Option to Give Up Their Medicare


WASHINGTON, DC—A new study by Representative Anthony Weiner (D – Queens & Brooklyn), member of the Health Subcommittee and Co-Chair of the Caucus on the Middle Class, revealed that 151 members of the House and Senate currently receive government-funded; government-administered single-payer health care - Medicare.


On the list of recipients are 55 Republicans who have steadfastly opposed other Americans getting the public option, like the one they have chosen.

devoish - thanks for putting the answer to my question in a separate blog post. I haven't been ignoring it, but have been insanely busy and think it deserves a thoughtful response. I will answer in that blog.
