"Members of Congress are afforded top-notch, well subsidized health plans, but they’re nothing compared with those provided to the people who make the real decisions in the U.S.

Top Wall Street executives get some of the best health coverage on the planet. Cruz’s wife, Heidi Nelson Cruz, is a regional head of a Goldman Sachs division.
