From American Daughter:

On July 15, the Senate health committee voted 12 to 11 in favor of a two-page amendment to the health care reform bill courtesy of Republican Tom Coburn that would require all members of Congress and their staffs to enroll in any new government-run “public option” health plan —A Prescription for the Goose… The Coburn amendment would force members of Congress to use ObamaCare .

In the House of Representatives, Congressman John Fleming (Louisiana physician) has introduced House Resolution 615 urging congressmen and senators to agree to enroll in the same healthcare plan they force on us (under proposed legislation they are curiously exempt).

H.Res.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.

Congressman Fleming is encouraging people to go on his website and sign his petition (very simple - just first name, last name, email, and street address). I have immediately done just that. Please urge as many people as you can to do the same! The form is on his main page, so do this quickly before it changes! Go here:

Congressman John Fleming: Express Your Opinion

It took me less than a minute to sign up to require our congressmen and senators to drink at the same trough! Three cheers for Congressman John Fleming of Louisiana! If Congress forces this on the American people, the senators and representatives should have to accept the same level of health care for themselves and their families.

Here’s John Fleming speaking before the House of Representatives. Watch: Government Run Health Care — You Vote For It, You Use It.
