A new study by New York Rep. Anthony Weiner shows that 55 GOP members of Congress who steadfastly oppose the public option get
Medicare - ie: government-funded, single-payer health care. And
probably like it. Weiner has called on them to give up their Medicare.
The list is here.

"Even in a town known for hypocrisy, this list of 55
Members of Congress deserve some sort of prize. They apparently think
the public option is ok for them, but not anyone else."
