Default HR 615 Bill forcing house and senate reps. to take the government run health care.

I looked on snopes and didn't find any thing

Over the past few weeks, members of Congress and the American people have come to know the details of the Administration's proposed health care plan. Call it whatever you like, I believe this proposal is nothing more than government-run health care. As a physician, I am amazed at the number of bureaucrats in this House who are quick to claim a government-run health care plan is the reform this country needs. In response to this, I have offered a resolution that will offer members of Congress an opportunity to put their money where their mouth is, and urge their colleagues who vote for legislation creating a government-run health care plan to lead by example and enroll themselves in the same public plan.
Under the current draft of the Democrat healthcare legislation, members of Congress are curiously exempt from the government-run health care option, keeping their existing health plans and services on Capitol Hill. If Members of Congress believe so strongly that government-run health care is the best solution for hard working American families, I think it only fitting that Americans see them lead the way. Public servants should always be accountable and responsible for what they are advocating.

Together we will work to ensure that any plan that is good enough for American families is good enough for every member of Congress.

Texted of bill from govtrack http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill...bill=hr111-615

I don't see this making it out of committee. If a public option is used congress won't want it, really why would they screw themselves. Its different for us, as they feel more important then the rest of the nation.

Funny thing is, if Congress were to actually take what is in place now they would have nothing.

It's not funny, just a reality. We have no public healthcare option and they have an awesome set of benefits.

I think you see the picture as well as I - this isn't a debate about whether or not to create public healthcare, it is a move to link the people responsible for pushing the bill to it.

I think it makes all of us feel a bit better about the potential quality of a system (whether it be healthcare or social security) if our political leaders need to depend upon it also.

Not that there wouldn't be plenty of loopholes for them to take advantage of if it actually happened, but it still would go a long way to making me feel better about the votes they cast.

FEHB-Federal Employee Health Benefit is just a group plan with a big muthafukkin group. Twenty insurers with different bids. I always laugh when people say put everyone on the FEHB. All they are saying is eliminate all competition.
