If it is good enough for us, then why don’t the Democrats in Congress want the same health care coverage? Perhaps, it is due to the fact that they do not want to wait in long lines for preventative, life-saving health care. Or, maybe, they do not want to lose the good quality health care that they are given as government employees.
Whatever the reasons are, it is only fair that our leaders in Congress are subject to the same universal health care mandates as their constituents who elected them to office.
Duke over America has a great piece detailing H. RES. 615, which was introduced by Rep. John Fleming (R-La.). Fleming’s proposal states that our public officials should be required to take the same medical coverage that we would be forced to take through the government. Duke over America highlighted that none of the Democrats have signed on to this bill. Nancy Pelosi, Steny Hoyer, and Henry Waxman, who hail the universal health care have not signed, which leads me to believe that they have “zero” faith that this will be the solve all, end all solution to our health care coverage.
Call your Congressman at 202-224-3121 and urge them to sign onto Rep. John Fleming’s bill. If it is good enough for them to propose universal health care for Americans, then they should sign on.
