Shame on the reporters and writers of this article! Why didn't they mention the fact that the Democrats and Obama put together a subsidy for Congress' healthcare. And, even though the Republicans in the House have voted to remove the subsidy (better called a "perk") and have Congress subject to the same rules and law as the public, the Democrats have refused! Apparently they think they are better than the rest of us--and apparently the Media, including ActionNews Jax's reporters think so as well!

Lawmakers are still collecting their $174,000 salaries, and they still have free parking privileges at the airports in Washington, D.C. The subway trains that take members of Congress to and from their offices to the Capitol are also running, a trek that on foot, is a two-minute walk. Law makers need to suffer????? And, who's going to make them?????
