But what Congress wants for you they don't want for themselves. No "patients' bill of rights" will cover their excellent health care. Why can't the rest of us have what they have? As the Heritage Foundation's Robert Moffitt writes, "This legislation doesn't just provide a broader right to sue HMO's. It expands the regulatory grasp of government to virtually every aspect of private health care, from prescription drugs to clinical trials." If you like the IRS code, which is beyond the understanding of even IRS employees, imagine how much more complicated medical care and its regulations will be if government assumes more control.
Better stay informed on this and don't believe what the politicians tell you. Investigate for yourself. Your health may depend on it.
