The royal ‘we’ in healthcare, USA

[Update 10/5/10Bob Herbert follows the money for would-be Mr. Speaker.]

Republican troglodytes in Congress, like their fearless leader, John Boehner, often say things like this:

Here in the United States, we have the best healthcare system in the world.”

Perhaps what they mean is “I have the best healthcare..,” because they certainly do.  They get it for life, whether  in or out of the U.S. Congress.

And those 30,000,000 of you who have no health insurance because of pre-existing conditions or premiums you can’t afford, too bad.  And the rest of you, say 265,000,000 who can loose your insurance anytime you lose, or just change your job, too bad for you.  That leaves the congressmen, the millionaires, and a few lucky folks with a secure footing in the best healthcare in the world.
