    . . . Enroll in the healthcare plan they want to force on us.

    On Tuesday, the Senate health committee voted 12-11 in favor of a two-page amendment, courtesy of Republican Tom Coburn, that would require all Members and their staffs to enroll in any new government-run health plan. It takes less than a minute to sign up to require our congressmen and senators to do as they require us to do! Congressman John Fleming (Louisiana physician) has proposed an amendment that would require congressmen and senators to take the same healthcare plan they force on us (under the proposed legislation they are curiously exempt).

    You can sign the petition here:

    Oh, if the gov't were to pass anything, you bet your sweet bippy that they should take the same healthcare plan as the rest of us.  Anything else would be Animal Farm.

    They also should be under scrutiny of the "PAY CZAR!"

    From what I've heard Congress already has a health plan for their members.
