Subject: HR 615 please act!
HR 615 – If you agree, please forward to everyone you know. On Tuesday, the Senate health committee voted 12-11 in favor of atwo-page amendment, courtesy of Republican Tom Coburn which wouldrequire all Members of Congress and their staff members to enroll in anynew government-run health plan.
Congressman John Fleming has proposed an amendment that wouldrequire Congressmen and Senators to take the same health care plan thatthey would force on us. (Under proposed legislation they are exempt.)
Congressman Fleming is encouraging people to go to his Website andsign his petition. The process is very simple. I have done just thatat: http://fleming.house.gov/index.html . Senator Coburn andCongressman Fleming are both physicians. Regardless of your politicalbeliefs, it sure seems reasonable that Congress should have exactly thesame medical coverage that they impose on the rest of us.
