The Perils of Gold-Plated Health Insurance

Bill Moyers, commenting on the failure of Democrats to back their President, observed,
"too many Democrats have had their spines surgically removed."
Ironically, I understand that spine removal is a covered benefit under the health plans offered by the federal government. Had Democratic Members of Congress, for example, been struggling under the inadequate coverage given to tens of millions of Americans, or had they been uninsured and had to cough up their own money to pay for their spine removal surgeries, the reform debate would probably be over by now.
