    So many on this list are going on a junket to Germany. Cut out the junkets and save big bucks. Any opting out of their health care coverage or other tax payer supported benefits. Hey guys (and gals) put your money where your mouth and opt out. I doubt if one will opt out — they’ll all wring as much benefits and junkets out of the government but want the tax payers (not their corporate sponsors) to foot the bill. How you you spell HYPOCRITE — easty REPUBLICAN.
