These words were famously said by Alan Grayson in Congress in the debate leading up to the passage of Obamacare.

Members of Congress have healthcare insurance provided by the taxpayers and members of the 1% are wealthy enough to self-insure. The rest of us must struggle for adequate coverage and if you have a pre-existing condition, forget about it.
