Healthcare for Americans

Lot of noise from every day Americans (never ordinary or average) about BO's latest attemtps to foist on them a healthcare system akin to their neighbours to the north. Michelle Malkin has a very simple suggestion that would really encourage those policy makers- you know, those with all the rich perks - to ponder the ramifications of such measures:
Congress should be required to enroll in Obamacare

If socialized medicine is good enough to force on American taxpayers, it’s good enough for Congress. I like this House resolution from Rep. John Fleming requiring lawmakers in Washington to enroll in any government-run health plan it decides to foist on the rest of us.

Read and sign the petition supporting House Resolution 615 here:

Over the past few weeks, members of Congress and the American people have come to know the details of the Administration’s proposed health care plan. Call it whatever you like, this proposal is nothing more than government-run health care. As a physician, I am amazed at the number of bureaucrats in this House who are quick to claim a government-run health care plan is the reform this country needs. In response to this, I have offered a resolution that will offer members of Congress an opportunity to put their money where their mouth is, and urge their colleagues who vote for legislation creating a government-run health care plan to lead by example and enroll themselves in the same public plan....

Such a simple, yet brilliant, idea. What is good for the goose is good for the gander. As MM's commenters suggest, this idea of the politicians having to "buy in" to ANY plan they want to load off onto Americans would SURELY make them think twice before they so cavalierly pass laws they haven't even read. Go read the rest here.

Then sign the petition. America, your health depends on it.
