John Edwards = Robin Hood

John Edwards has a great idea about how to help pay for his universal health care plan:

Edwards said on the first day of his administration he would submit legislation that ends health care coverage for the president, all members of Congress, and all senior political appointees in both branches of government on July 20th, 2009 - unless universal health care legislation that meets four specific, non-negotiable principles has been passed by that date.
I like this idea because, to me, it shows that he understands that there are some people who are getting the best health care in the country while others are getting nothing. And the people getting the good care are representing the ones who have none.

How is this right? Why are the richest of the rich and elected representatives more deserving of good, quality health care?

They aren't.

This is a moral issue. I believe that Edwards' health care plan is the best one out there so far.

We must do better. We can, it'll just take a President who's willing to do so.
