GOOD ENOUGH FOR THEE
This should indicate how much quality Democrats really think they're going to offer us peons
On Tuesday, the Senate health committee voted 12-11 in favor of a
two-page amendment courtesy of Republican Tom Coburn that would require
all Members and their staffs to enroll in any new government-run health
plan. Yet all Democrats -- with the exceptions of acting chairman Chris
Dodd, Barbara Mikulski and Ted Kennedy via proxy -- voted nay.
In other words, Sherrod Brown and Sheldon Whitehouse won't
themselves join a plan that "will offer benefits that are as good as
those available through private insurance plans -- or better," as the
Ohio and Rhode Island liberals put it in a recent op-ed. And even a
self-described socialist like Vermont's Bernie Sanders, who supports a
government-only system, wouldn't sign himself up.
I think Congress should be required to use the public system that they
created. And I'm on board with Instapundit's idea
of requiring Congress to always pay the highest marginal tax rate as well.

Sherrod Brown turns my stomach. I wonder when the citizens in my state will wise up--it's doubtful it will ever happen given the 'quality' of our educational system we have. But, it is quite telling how they are handling all that, isn't it??

I agree with you 100%. The old "Do as I say, not do as I do" should definitely not apply here. This makes me even angrier over the health care issue.
