I am recommending the Same-as-Congress Medical Plan. It is good enough for me. If I can, I will switch from Medicare and Blue Cross, to the SAC Med Plan. The SAC Med Plan should be a one payer system. The payer is the federal taxpayer. We will all be in the same boat.

Body parts do not go to the highest bidder; some are not even for sale. If you are sick enough to need dialysis, that is automatically a federal taxpayer burden. The federal taxpayer pays at least in part for a medical plan for members of Congress. Let us all in the same lifeboat.

You may agree on the principle that all should get medical care, and that all should have equal care, but the socialism factor may stand in your way of supporting a SAC Med Plan. Do not be dissuaded. To each according to her needs is all right, and the right thing to do, in this very important (but limited) area. It is like universal military service to protect the country. All share the burden. Because every baby faces a future of possible service and sacrifice as cannon fodder, every baby has an entitlement, a right to the SAC Medical Plan.

My vote goes for the SAC Medical Plan. I am asking Representative Steve Pearce,
Representative Heather Wilson, Representative Tom Udall, Senator Jeff Bingaman, and
Senator Pete Domenici to vote for SAC Medical Plan.
