Congressman John Fleming– Louisiana 4th District. Below is from his web site, he has sponsored a bill HR-615; see below for the content!

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, I believe 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.

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.

Together we will work to ensure that any plan that is good enough is for American families is good enough for every member of Congress.

You can go to his website and view the resolution, see who is supporting it, and download a letter to send to YOUR congresscritter…

And I’m going to, since mine is NOT on the list…

In other news, I heard Frankin was really asking the hard questions today… Did Sotomayor REALLY like Perry Mason, and was he her role model?

And Chuckie Shumer actually started “crying” about how good a role model she was…

  1. There is NO WAY Congress will sit still with this.

    Those people won’t subject themselves and their families to nearly non-existent health care, long lines, two to three month waits to see a physician, a limited number of treatment options.

    However it’s a remarkably sound idea.

  2. They expressly exempted themselves, SCOTS and federal employees. Page 16 makes employers pay tax on company provided health insurance or provide ONLY Obamacare.

  3. LL- Hopefully this will help, along with the CBO report, to blow the bill out of the water.

    Fuzzy- Thanks

    Crucis- I know… and that just pisses me off!!!

    WSF- They really need to, and to PAY them something more than .64 on the dollar for services.

  4. After I retired from my 20, because of where I live I elected to buy the best private health care I could afford and went with BC/BS of RI. The very best coverage they had at about 30 grand a year for total coverage for me and my family and empolyees. Well when I turned 65, they shitcanned me so fast it made my head spin. Now they are third on the payers list after Medicare, and Tricare, two providers that I didn’t want anything from! “They” need to do something, but obamacare is just NOT the answer!!
