Republican Hypocrisy at its finest

So in addition to repealing healthcare for the masses the republicans in congress are attempting to give themselves better healthcare.

If true as reported here, I'm not surprised.  If they want government out of healthcare, they should give up their gov't healthcare and buy it in the "free market" like so many have to do.  I believe latest stats say half of Congress are millionaires.  They shouldn't need that gov't healthcare--especially after they leave Congress and make millions being lobbyists.  If they really walked the talk, they wouldn't take healthcare or a pension.  After all, that is an entitlement program.  It causes them to by lazy and not pull themselves up by their bootstraps.

Well if Congress loses its right to VIP healthcare, they can always "retroactively" claim benefits that will no longer exist.  Since they are of course VIP.

I really want Obama to get reelective, but i'm a little nervous mainly because folks aren't 'fired up' like they were in 2008.  the election is gonna come down to whom they can get out to vote.  here in Texas i don't have much leverage to do much to get  out the vote being in republiic territory, but i sure hope those in the swing statss are doing all they can to get their comrades convinced to get off their ass this time and get to the voting polls

I shutter the fact of what a Romney prescidency would do to the gay/lesbian/women community.

My brother fixed a couple weeks of holiday to go campaign for Obama in swing states in the fall. Since he felt he was not needed in NY. 

Isn't the whole point to meet the undecided and yes why not even Republicans.  My grandmother was a lifetime Republican until W. Bush, and then she voted Dem and again Dem for Obama!  Don't you think you could reach young people or anyone really, who knows, in Texas and win a few minds over to Obama?
