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.”
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.
