Republicans Must Disclose Where They Receive Health Insurance Coverage

Republicans obsessed by trying to block the Federal Law to provide health care reform and expand affordable insurance coverage for uninsured Americans, don't reveal how their own health care is paid.  Most Republicans who want to unfund health care reform in the "Obamacare" plan are beneficiaries of state of the art insurance plans.  It's likely they don't worry about paying for "pre-existing conditions", like pregnancy, or coverage for certain medications, whether or not they're listed on an approved Formulary. 

Texas is the state with the most uninsured people. Therefore, it makes virtually no sense for Texas Senator Ted Cruz to filibuster (in other words, waste tax payer time) to prevent his constituents from purchasing affordable health insurance, as provided in the Affordable Care Act (aka "Obamacare").

It seems fair to me to request the Republicans, who insist on obstructing the implementation of health care reform, to disclose to their constituents where they receive their insurance coverage? There's a better than 50/50 chance that obstructionist Republicans, who want to block the implementation of health care reform, are receiving their own coverage from government plans.  

We don't need to ask about how Senator Cruz and his family receives health care coverage. His coverage is paid by taxpayers. 
Nevertheless, Cruz and his selfish supporters don't want taxpayers to help other people to access affordable health insurance. This is unethical and hypocritical.

It makes no sense for Republicans to deny the working poor and those who need health insurance from accessing affordable coverage, without telling us how they receive coverage.  

Republicans need to disclose to America how their health insurance is paid. More important, Republicans must let go of their obsession with health care reform and, instead, figure out how to fix what's wrong with their right wing extremist political party.  

Obviously, hypocrisy is easy to fix when people tell the truth. Unfortunately, Republicans have lost the ability to tell people the truth, or else they would reveal where they receive health insurance before trying to prevent others from the same or similar access.
