The Internets are melting today, given the post-AHCA punditry traffic. THCB is on it: After the American Health Care Act.
One of my tweets:
Members of Congress get their health insurance coverage through the FEHB, the Federal Employees Health Benefits program. The taxpayers pick up 70% of the premiums tab. So, if you select a plan costing $500 a month, you pay only $150, with the other $350 borne by the public. Sweet. BTW, I don't expect an answer from these House Freedom Caucus anarchists.@freedomcaucus, how many of you take your 70% taxpayer-subsidized FEHB health insurance benefits? #FreedomCaucus #AHCAfail @CNN @ABC @MSNBC— Bobby Gladd (@BobbyGvegas) March 26, 2017
