    Anyone know the names of key players in this? I'd like to get someone to put an amendment forth regarding this issue.


    :) There needs to be an amendment requiring Congress to be full participating members of what ever healthcare plan they come up with for the rest of us. No exemptions. No special privileges. FULL participating members.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    I read on some blog, a Republican Senator or Rep. is proposing this very idea.

    I'll try finding it.

    Finally found it!

    Congressman John Fleming (R-La) says that any member of congress who votes for a government run healthcare plan should have to enroll in it.
    "Under the current draft of the Democrat healthcare legislation, members of Congress are curiously exempt from the government-run health care option, keeping their existing health plans and services on Capitol Hill. If Members of Congress believe so strongly that government-run health care is the best solution for hard working American families, I think it only fitting that Americans see them lead the way. Public servants should always be accountable and responsible for what they are advocating, and I challenge the American people to demand this from their representatives."
    He has a petition on his website. Sign up here if you believe any member of Congress who votes for a government run health care plan should be forced to participate in the plan themselves?

    That dumb fuck idiot already has a government plan.

    The BIG question is ... "can I have the same plan you have Mr. Fleming ?"

    The answer ...."Sorry son, this plan is ONLY for government employees"

    What a fucking idiot.
