A top Republican has proposed legislation that would allow all Americans to enroll in the health plan used by federal employees and members of Congress.
House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), who introduced the bill, said the measure would address some of the nation’s key healthcare challenges.
“This is a free-market approach to healthcare with government playing the very limited role of helping small businesses and individuals come together to get a better price for healthcare — much like larger businesses can already negotiate on their own,” Issa said in a statement Thursday.
I only have one question to hizzonner: Given that this fed-worker plan exists since 1960 (or more than 50 years), why did it take Obamacare to make this proposal?
