Congressional excess

Dear Sirs: Now that all of our congressmen have voted to end government funded Medicare and Medicaid, I think that they should practice what they preach. They should stop their government funded health insurance and health care and either self-insure or self-fund their health costs for themselves and their families (including parents). They should shop around when they or family members get sick to make sure they get the best deals. They should go it alone and give up their "free" health plans that are paid for by our taxes. Also they shouldn't steal from us by using their tax-payer funded staff to handle their health plans and visits to medical offices for treatments. They need to take unpaid time off to take care of medical issues just as we do.
