House Of Hypocrisy

October 26, 2009 12:00 pm ET

Rep. Anthony Weiner recently released a list of Members of Congress who benefit from Medicare, which is in effect, a government-run, public option, health insurance plan.  On the list are 55 Republicans, 36 of whom sit in the House of Representatives.  All of them oppose, and some virulently so, proposals to create a government-run, public option, health insurance plan that would be available to all Americans.  They deny their constituents the peace of mind that they themselves comfortably enjoy. As Rep. Weiner put it, "they apparently think the public option is ok for them, but not anyone else."  We think that is hypocrisy.
