I notice that all Republican members of Congress seem opposed to “Obamacare” and to increasing taxes on the wealthiest Americans.

Could it be that they are opposed to granting us this basic need because they are among the health-care insured and among the wealthiest Americans?

As a working stiff who purchased private health insurance for 25 years, only to be priced out at every billing cycle, I counter that no public servant should receive health insurance coverage paid for with taxpayer money until everyone has health insurance.
