Politicians Who Support Government-Run Health Care Should Lead By Example

Guest blog post by Rep. John Fleming, M.D. (La.)

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 what you like, 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 health care 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, and I challenge the American people to demand this from their representatives.
