Health insurance favors elected leaders, not citizens

August 26, 2013 

So our leaders here in Florida, like Will Weatherford, only pay $8.34 for their health insurance! How can this be?

As a person over 65, my Medicare costs me $100 -- and that only covers 80 percent; the other 20 percent costs me $150. This injustice has to stop now. We must all speak out. It is just not fair.

Also, our leaders in Washington also got a sweet deal on health insurance. How come that some people are not subject to the same rules as all us taxpayers.

Speak out now.
