On Tuesday, the US Senate Committee on Health voted 12-11 in favor of a two-page amendment courtesy of Republican Tom Coburn that would require all Members and their staffs to enroll in any new government-run health plan.
It took me less than a minute to sign-up to a petition that would require our congressmen and senators to drink at that same trough! Three cheers for Congressman John Fleming of Louisiana!
Congressman John Fleming (a Louisiana physician) has proposed an amendment to the Health Care Bill that would require all congressmen and senators to take the same healthcare plan they force on us. Under the currently-proposed Bill they are curiously exempt.
Congressman Fleming is encouraging people to go on his Website and sign his petition.
It is a very simple process - just first, last, and email address. I have immediately done just that at: Web Link
Please urge as many people as you can to do the same!
If Congress forces this on the American people, then those same Congressmen should have to accept the same level and form of health care for themselves and their families.
It's a fundamental idea that we've lost sight of in this country…lawmakers should follow the law.
