Healthcare for Congress not the same as rest of US, they get drug delivery
Healthcare for Congress is much different from what the rest of America’s receive. If Congress was forced to live under Obamacare they would have moved very quickly to replace it.
An example of the perks Congress receives is their prescriptions are hand delivered to them. Mitch McConnell or John McCain the killer of both attempts to end Obamacare come down with the flu their drugs are delivered right to them.
Prescriptions are delivered daily to the secretive Office of the Attending Physician. Congress pays $600 annually to have access to emergency and basic healthcare including providing prescriptions.
Mike Kim, the reserved pharmacist-turned-owner of the pharmacy, said he has gotten used to knowing the most sensitive details about some of the most famous people in Washington.
“At first it’s cool, and then you realize, I’m filling some drugs that are for some pretty serious health problems as well. And these are the people running the country,” Kim said,
“It makes you kind of sit back and say, ‘Wow, they’re making the highest laws of the land and they might not even remember what happened yesterday.’”

Congress’s only pharmacist, Rep. Buddy Carter (R-Ga.).“It’s a great opportunity for us as pharmacists, also, to showcase what we do, because that’s exactly what we do is take care of patients,” Carter told STAT. “This is another example of how we go above and beyond our call of duty to help people in health care.”
“If you have a vote and you can’t get home to your personal physician, you need to see somebody, and I’ll run over between votes and be able to keep my personal responsibilities going,” said Sen. Bill Cassidy, a Louisiana Republican. “It’s a convenience that definitely allows us to be more productive.”
If Healthcare for Congress was the same as Obamacare the epic failure of a Government Insurance program would already be replaced. But as long as Congress has perks such as drug delivery why worry about the rest of us suckers.
