Governor Schweitzer Asks Legislators to Give Up Insurance


Governor Schweitzer bullies the poor Republicans in the Legislature:

He is also asking that the 93 legislators who voted for SB 106 give up about half a year’s worth of their state funded health insurance – about $409,000 – to cover the state’s cost of joining the suit.

In his letter to the Senate,  he wrote, “I find it particularly ironic that some legislators are willing to spend Montana taxpayers’ money to challenge the federal health care reform act for symbolic reasons, while at the same time deriving personal advantage from state health care laws and policies that allow them, as legislators, to receive taxpayer-funded health insurance benefits.”

Seems fair to me.
