” Sen. David Vitter took his campaign against federal employer-provided health benefits to a new level on Monday night.
The Louisiana Republican appeared on the Fox News program “Hannity” along with David Bossie of the conservative group Citizens United to launch a new advertising effort in favor of the Vitter amendment that includes a fundraising effort for Citizens United.
“We’re really excited about this, being able to take it to the American people so that they can rise up and say look, enough is enough. Congress, you can’t pass a law that by the way is so bad it can’t be rolled out in a competent way for anyone but themselves,” Bossie said. “That’s just plain wrong.” “
Here is a radical idea … how about we designate all politicians as self-employed , since it isn’t supposed to be a career choice anyway , and cease providing anything to our elected officials other than a salary and a 1099 form at the end of the year ?
Let them shop around for their own health insurance and invest in their own retirement funds . Why should the taxpayers foot the bill for such largesse ? With perqs like they have now it’s no wonder they treat the jobs like sinecures. We’ve only ourselves to blame is we allow this madness to continue .
