This will make you crazy....

This ABC news report will make you froth at the mouth. No wonder the assholes in Congress don't worry about health care.

Read this!!


Wow, Stan...

Everyone should have this level of care from their physician...

"A member walked in and was generally walked right back into a physician's office. They get good care. They are not rushed. They are examined thoroughly," said Eduardo Balbona, an internist in Jacksonville, Fla., who worked as a staff physician in the OAP from 1993 to 1995.

"You have time to spend to get to know your patients and think about them and really think about how you preserve their health going forward," Balbona said. "We're not there to put on Band-Aids. We were there to make sure that everything possible that could be done [is done] to preserve that member of Congress."

Vote Democratic! The ass you save may be your own.

Be sure you read the whole's several pages.

Here's another interesting tidbit from the article:

Members of Congress do not pay for the individual services they receive at the OAP, nor do they submit claims through their federal employee health insurance policies. Instead, members pay a flat, annual fee of $503 for all the care they receive. The rest of the cost of their care, sources said, is subsidized by taxpayers.

Last year, Congress appropriated more than $3 million to reimburse the Navy for staff salaries at the office. Next year's budget allocates $3.8 million for the office, including more than half a million dollars to upgrade the Office's radiology suite. Sources said additional money to operate the office is included in the Navy's annual budget.

I wonder if they get their prescription drugs free too?

No surprise no one in Congress has ever mentioned this wonderful perk. So...we not only pay for their health insurance but also for their care. But noooooo....they don't want us little people to even have a public option.
