Letter: Benefits for the politicians?

The new federal health care law took another hit from a federal judge saying government cannot require Americans to have health insurance.

I don't know if the new law is good, bad, some of each, or all of the above. This same judge is probably getting free health insurance and does not appreciate what he is getting. I think all federal and state officials and workers should pay for their own health insurance.

Our one political party wants to cut programs and the other party seems to think that they should hand out money like it's paid for by them. If we cut health insurance on these jobs, it would save millions on both state and federal budgets.

The people with these jobs will be the last ones to vote to cancel this and many more perks that we are not aware of. I would really like to know what some of these officials are getting for benefits.
