HR 615: Sign the Petition

[Bratnote: This one suggests what I have also been saying all along. If any of the proposed healthcare reform bills being hoisted on the American public are so great, according to the politicians, then THEY also should be required to sign on for the same plans. Pretty simple, to me.]

From CJ:

This one is worth signing - link goes directly to survey on Congressman John Fleming's website.

Subject: HR 615 - Please forward to everyone you know

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:

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!
