The majority on the House Energy and Commerce Committee refused to consider an
amendment by Health Care Solutions Group Chairman Roy Blunt to require all
federal elected officials, including the president, vice-president, and the
Congress, to join the government health care plan.
It was voted down --of course. Blunt has my vote (hat tip Laura). Blunt says,
“If the majority is really so confident that their plan will provide the very best health care for the people we represent, we ought to demonstrate that confidence by enrolling ourselves,” Blunt said. “I’m surprised, given that other committees in both the House and Senate have considered similar efforts in the last several weeks.”
“I, for one, don’t believe that a government-run health care plan will be the best for the people we represent,” Blunt continued, “But clearly the majority has discovered how potent this issue is. After all, if we are going to force this government takeover on the American people, let’s put our money where our mouths are and enroll ourselves.”
If it's good enough for us, why not for the pigs at the trough? Bloodsuckers. America should be outraged. OUTRAGED.
Welcome to the new America: special privilege for special classes.
UPDATE: Welcome to embarrass your congressman.
