Republican Health Care Hypocrites

How is this for outrageous hypocrisy?

One incoming House Republican freshman is already complaining that the affordable health care coverage he gets as a Member of Congress — the same coverage that Republicans want to repeal for hardworking families — doesn’t start soon enough!

That’s right. Despite having his own health care paid for by the taxpayers, this incoming House Republican wants to tell hardworking Americans who are struggling to make ends meet that they’re on their own when it comes to affording coverage for their own families.

How many other Republican health care hypocrites do you think there are? Let’s find out.

Voice your outrage against Republican Health Care Hypocrisy. Sign our petition asking House Republicans if they’ll forgo their taxpayer-funded health care coverage before trying to repeal health insurance reform for hardworking Americans.

Our petition is simple. It asks whether House Republicans will stand by their words by refusing the tax-payer funded health care benefits they get before trying to repeal health care reform and make it harder for all Americans to get affordable coverage.

Let’s hold the Republicans’ feet to the fire by exposing all of the health care hypocrites in their ranks. Sign our petition today so we can hold them accountable starting right now.
