A blogger with The Faster Times decided to do a rant about liberal members of congress, with our own Raúl Grijalva singled out, who are so far refusing to pass the Senate health bill unammended.
If the blogger, Mathew Speiler, wants to question Grijalva’s tactics, that’s just fine. But, he goes too far when he alleges that Grijalva cares nothing for the millions of uninsured, since he’s got his insurance through the Federal Employee Health Benefit plan.
Speiler’s piece was picked up by The New Republic too, and one of Speiler’s readers went so far as to post a response detailing the benefits that Grijalva gets from FEHB plan.
That’s all fine and good, but Grijalva isn’t on the FEHB plan, he’s on his wife’s plan. Kinda ruins the rant, donnit?
