Closing Note:

HR 615

Doesn't it make sense that the public option - the one our elected officials in Washington are trying to ram down our throats - should also apply to those who vote for implementing it?


Rep. John Fleming (R-La.) is doing his part in the House by nudging his colleagues into doing the right thing. Ninety-six House members have recently signed on as co-sponsors to his non-binding H.R. 615, “Expressing the sense of the House of Representatives that Members who vote in favor of the establishment of a public, federal government run health insurance option are urged to forgo their right to participate in the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program (FEHBP) and agree to enroll under that public option.”

Bottom Line:

This amendment would require Congressmen and Senators to take the same health care plan that they plan to force on us. (Under currently proposed legislation they are exempt.)

Congressman Fleming is encouraging everyone to go to his Website and express their opinion/sign this petition. The process is very simple - even I (not quite the sharpest knife in the drawer) was able to complete it in ~ 15 seconds.

Express your opinion here: Congressman John Fleming

Look up HR 615 at thomas.loc.gov. I don't believe it does any such thing.

Excellent gathering Randy. I especially loved the Milestone funnie. The don't break any real news was also a dandy. Obama is not agonizing over whether to send more troops. He is just waiting for his marching orders. That pipeline is vital to say the least. The hypocritoc oath was another good one. The dollar on the shrinks couch lmao. And quite possibly my favorite, "Ok this time let's have a convincing show of legitimacy. Terrorists Sanctuary at FOX news....RFLMAO Boy oh boy and the last one......GEEEEEZ

Ha!, I'm glad someone is finding humor in all of this. Sometimes it's the best response one can give.


Laugh on, b/c soon it won't be so funny...not funny at all.

Ciao belli
