LETTER: Time to eliminate health benefits for politicians and bureaucrats

Too many are taking them for granted

It is upsetting that many of our politicians, senators and bureaucrats take for granted their taxpayer paid extended health and dental benefits.

Meanwhile, millions of Canadians do not have any extended medical and dental benefits and cannot afford to get prescription medication, eyeglasses, hearing aids, dental care and eye and hearing exams.

Time to eliminate the taxpayer paid extended medical and dental benefits for politicians, senators and bureaucrats or that the government give these benefits to all Canadians that do not have these benefits supplied from their employers.
