Ive been saying for years now, that they get treated like royalty with their healthcare and retirement and bennies.

I think we should focus more on telling them what we think about this healthcare, etc....but yeah, use that "if it is so good, get it for yourselves, too" viewpoint.

Not sure where it will all go, but a good point.

They could really care less, I think.
