Why did Congress exempt themselves from being included in the healthcare they want for the rest of Americans?
Maybe it's because Congress members don't want themselves and their families to be at the mercy of bureaucrats about whether they can receive quality of life treatments, or even treatments for their very life or death; rationing; long lines; or when they become senior citizens, be forced to have counseling every five years, or more often if they are sick, regarding alternatives for end of life care.
Rep. John Fleming, (the 2007 Louisiana family physician of the year), put forth a bill, HR615 to urge congress members, who vote for the healthcare reform bill, to lead by example and enroll themselves in this public plan. Visit his website, www.fleming.house.gov, and see if your congressperson signed on as co-sponsor of Rep. Fleming's bill. If they did not, ask them why.
It is past time that we disabuse them of that notion.
The do not want to live under the same health provisions that they prescribe for the rest of us. Neither does Obama.
Here is a link to the full House Democrat Health Care Plan in PDF. In Section 1233 E & F, pages 426-433, you find the part about mandatory end-of-life counseling for anyone over 65 years of age. Section 152 Page 50: All healthcare services will be provided without regard to "personal characteristcs" which is not defined within the document as is understood to include immigration status.
A lot more provisions now being documented at that site.
Also, here's a large image of the Democratic (Obama) Health Plan chart-another Obama empty promise. This is the one the House democrats are censuring. Email these links or the image to everyone you know.
Obama and all those pushing his radical agenda are abject marxist ideologues. Their "fundamental; change" is nothing more than a destruction of the American free market and fundamental republican principle.

...and on the lighter side, take your mind off the Obamanation for a few minutes and enjoy some beautiful Western US scenery slideshows.
same reason they vote themselves raises, ....they can
reminds me of that joke about a dog......
It is unconsitutional under the equal protection clause of the constitution. We must bring this to the SCOTUS as soon as this monstosity is passed and signed into “law”.
It’s because they TRULY believe that they deserve the BEST and we, the masses should all divide a generic, marginal system that THEY can control.
They’re better than us, mind you...
I think its unbelievable that someone had enough guts to come out & say it! Thats exactly how it is...congress & senate knows that it is a deathcare bill.
I say we demand that if they pass it, they have to be on it too! The potus too - if one of our children dies from a curable illness because they won’t allow treatment, then by God, Zero’s children better face the same fate...is that what he wants? Has he even thought of that? Would he allow his own children to die when he knows there are treatments available?
No...of course not. But he’ll let us & our children die!
It might also be a good idea to pass along Fleming’s website link
I agree :)
Thanks for all that great information, and I’ll repeat this because it is so chilling:
“In Section 1233 E & F, pages 426-433, you find the part about mandatory end-of-life counseling for anyone over 65 years of age. Section 152 Page 50: All healthcare services will be provided without regard to “personal characteristcs” which is not defined within the document as is understood to include immigration status.”
They can and do because the voters are to lazy or care and therefore keep returning the same arrogant corrupt slugs to office.
Simple. Even your garden variety congress-critter (as stupid and venal as they are) knows that obamacare is a steaming pile of sh*t.

Expressing the sense of the House of Representatives that
Members who vote in favor of the establishment of a
public, federal government run health insurance option
are urged to forgo their right to participate in the Federal
Employees Health Benefits Program (FEHBP) and
agree to enroll under that public option.
Here is the Blue Cross which is (and will remain) available to all Federal Employees, Congress included:
stay on this and obamacare will die.....demand that THEY be included. period.

Is plastic surgery and Botox included in DeathCare? If not, SanFranNan would have nowhere to go for a touch-up.
