Obama: Would you be satisfied if every member of Congress just had catastrophic care–you think we’d be better health care purchasers? I mean, is that a change you think we should make?
Barrasso: I think actually we would. We’d really focus on it. We’d have more, as you say, skin in the game. And especially if they had a savings account–a health savings account–they could put their money into that, and they’d be spending the money out of that.
Obama: Would you feel the same way if you were making $40,000? Or if that was your income? Because that’s the reality for a lot of folks.
