Hypocrisy Alert: Marino, Barletta To Accept Same Government Health Insurance They Railed Against and Will Vote to Deny Their Constituents

Hypocrisy Alert: Marino, Barletta To Accept Same Government Health Insurance They Railed Against and Will Vote to Deny Their Constituents

Harrisburg, PA- After months of silence and side stepping questions, The Daily Item reports today that Representatives Lou Barletta and Tom Marino will take the government issued health insurance available to Members of Congress, the same insurance they railed against on the campaign trail and pledge to deny to millions of their constituents. 

“After months of refusing to answering questions, Representatives Lou Barletta and Tom Marino have finally come clean,” said Democratic Party Chairman Jim Burn. “They will accept the same government health insurance they are eagerly awaiting to deny millions of their constituents. Health insurance reform gives tax credits to small businesses, helps older Pennsylvanians pay for preventative care and prescription drugs, keeps insurance companies from denying coverage for children with pre-existing conditions and reduces the deficit by $143 billion over the next 10 years – but Tom Marino and Lou Barletta want to take all of that away while taxpayers subsidize their own insurance. Tom Marino and Lou Barletta’s hypocrisy is disturbing, but unfortunately not surprising.”

Taxpayers kick in approximately $700 a month for the health plans of members of Congress.

Barletta and Marino plan to take taxpayer subsidized insurance plans.

Lou Barletta pledged to repeal health reform that would give Pennsylvanians access to similar quality insurance as members of Congress.

Tom Marino said he would repeal health reform. “Marino called for a repeal of the health care reform bill…He noted that members of Congress should not receive any better health care coverage than average citizens.”
