Over the weekend, Nancy Boyda announced she would forgo the health care plan available to Members of Congress (and every other federal employee, yep, they all get the same health care plan). She was hailed as a "breath of fresh air."
Not only are Members of Congress' health care options no better than other federal employees, BUT it's easy to forgo a health care plan when you and your husband are worth between $1.3 million and $3.8 million, and your husband is a trial lawyer. Yep, according to Nancy Boyda's financial disclosures, the Boyda's are pretty well off. They made somewhere in the neighborhood of $100,000 just in interest from their investments last year.
Spread the word, don't believe the hype.
Dedicated to the proposition that Nancy Boyda is a one termer.
