Elyse Siegel at HuffPost has a new story about Anthony Weiner in his campaign to humiliate Republicans into supporting, or at least not sabotaging, a robust public option.

His most recent tactic has been to publish the name of 55 Republicans–in both the Senate and the House– who are on Medicare themselves, and yet oppose making a public option available to either the uninsured or those with insurance they can hardly afford now.

On Thursday, Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) called on 55 Republican adversaries of the public option to give up their government-funded health insurance. The congressman argued that it is hypocritical for Senate and House members receiving “government-administered single-payer health care — Medicare” to oppose making such coverage available to the American public.

“Even in a town known for hypocrisy, this list of 55 Members of Congress deserve some sort of prize,” Weiner wrote. “They apparently think the public option is ok for them, but not anyone else.”

And from Rep. Weiner’s home page, we have the complete list:

Rather than term limits, perhaps we should be considering age limits.

Update: Apparently their former colleague, Chuck Hagel, agrees that the Republican Party is acting irresponsibly on the health care issue. Read and/or watch here.
