Hot Damn - Someone is thinking. I have not confirmed this as yet, but sounds promising.

Hot Damn - Someone is thinking. I have not confirmed this as yet, but sounds promising.

On Tuesday, the Senate health committee 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. Yet all Democrats - with the exceptions of acting chairman Chris Dodd, Barb ara Mikulski and Ted Ken nedy via proxy - voted nay.

It took me less than a minute to sign up to require our congressmen and senators to drink at the same trough! Three cheers for Congressman Jo hn Fleming of Louisiana !

Congressman John Fleming ( Louisiana physician) has proposed an amendment that would require congressmen and senators to take the same healthcare plan they force on us (under proposed legislation they are curiously exempt).

Congressman Fleming is encouraging people to go on his Website and sign his petition (very simple - just first, last and email). I have immediately done just that at: http://fleming.house.gov/index.html Please urge as many people as you can to do the same!

If Congress forces this on the American people, the Congressmen should have to accept the same level of health care for themselves and their families.

Right now, congressmen have their own healthcare plan that includes the best of the best in coverage. Under the current Healthcare bill, they would be able to keep the plan they have right now, so no matter how badly things get fucked up because of the government-run program, they would never have to deal with it. The proposal above would require congress to have to use the exact same system they are forcing on the American people. The result of that is congress will try much harder to come up with a much better plan because god forbid Nancy Pelosi has to wait five hours to be seen for the sniffles.
