U.S. Rep. Chris Murphy Says He's Willing To Switch Health Plans
The Hartford Courant
NEW BRITAIN — - U.S. Rep. Chris Murphy says he's willing to do more than just talk about health care reform: He'll try it himself.

"Everyone should have some scratch in the game," Murphy told a crowd of state retirees Thursday. "I should be willing to put myself at risk."

Murphy, a second-term Democrat representing the 5th District, said that if President Barack Obama's reform initiative becomes law, he'd get off the general health insurance plan that members of Congress enjoy.

Addressing about 60 retirees at the AFSCME Council 4 headquarters, Murphy said that he'll promote that idea to Democrats and Republicans alike when Congress returns from its break.

"I think members of Congress should be willing to come off the federal system, and I'll be pushing to have them go on a health insurance exchange," Murphy said.

The Obama plan would create a government-backed nonprofit insurance option to compete against private insurers.......
