this is good I think




HR 615
 
On Tuesday, the Senate health committee voted 12-11 in favor of a two-page amendment, courtesy of Republican Tom Coburn which would require all members of Congress and their staff members to enroll in any new government-run health plan.
 
Congressman John Fleming has proposed an amendment that would require Congressmen and Senators to take the same health care plan that they would force on us.  (Under proposed legislation they are exempt.)
 
Congressman Fleming is encouraging people to go to his Website and sign his petition.  The process is very simple.  I have done just that at:
 
www.fleming.house.gov/index.html
 
When you click on the above link, if it doesn't open the site, copy and paste it on Google.  That will make it open.
 
Senator Coburn and Congressman Fleming are both physicians.  Regardless of your political beliefs, it sure seems reasonable that Congress should have exactly the same medical coverage that they impose on the rest of us.
 
Please urge as many people as you can to do the same!

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

It's like voting for an independent. Won't win, but will send a message. I went to the link and signed it.

Same here. It is about the principle. Then we should start putting them on the same Social Security program as us.
