"Despite being part-time workers, every NC legislator qualifies to receive completely free tax-payer subsidized health coverage for themselves through the NC State Health Plan. No other part-time state worker has that right .... NC legislators also uniquely qualify to buy into the State Health Plan at the basic rate after they leave the General Assembly." (NC Policy Watch)
Well taken-care-of themselves, Soucek and Jordan will vote with the rest of their Republican brethren to quickly pass a promised resolution opposing the federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act ... because (hey!) just because they get free insurance doesn't mean they have to support your right to a shot at affordable coverage.
If they were honest, God-fearing politicians, and not towering hypocrites, they would voluntarily give up the free perks that we pay for and which they can enjoy for the rest of their lives.
We ain't holding our breath.
