(Snippets from the frontline)
Skin in the game
Our nightmare has begun again as lawmakers are going at it in Washington, D.C. to develop healthcare legislation for the American people. We all know though Congresspeople have their own insurance plan allowing total coverage and benefits, with small deductibles and minimal drug costs.
For us, you can expect a complicated, special interest written, high cost version of what we have had in the past.
Instead, let the special interest group led by American citizens demand our legislators live under the laws they make. Force them to have “skin in the game” from the onset, as this will provide impetus for better healthcare legislation.
Americans will sleep better at night.
