While I don't normally post stuff like this in the main forums as it is "Off Topic", I felt it necessary to do so because this is something that concerns us all. I decided to put it here because the "Off Topic Discussion" section of the board cannot be seen by those that don't log in or by Guests. Please take a moment and go to the site link and sign on. And the next piece of legislation I want to see is Congress with the exact same Retirement Benifits that "We The People" have!

HR 615

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: http://fleming.house.gov/index.html

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!
