Shouldn't Democrats who vote for the health care legislation be willing to live under it? 

If you run into your "representative" (note the scare quotes, because many of those voting for the bill are doing so in defiance of their employers, the voters) while he or she's out on Christmas recess, ask if s/he is willing to forgo the federal employees' health benefit plan in favor of this new legislation being imposed on the rest of us.

That's the acid test.
