Health care alert – Congress you first!

When you think about good solid politics, Louisiana doesn’t come to mind. However, Congressman John Fleming, a practicing physician, has proposed an amendment to the health care bill that would require members in the House and Senate to receive the same health care coverage Washington D.C. is proposing for all Americans.
“Under the current draft of the healthcare legislation, members of Congress are curiously exempt from the government-run health care option, they will be keeping their existing health plans on Capitol Hill,” says Fleming.
“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 (politicians) lead the way. Public servants should always be accountable and responsible for what they are advocating.”
The Congressman is encouraging all Americans to visit his website fleming.house.gov/ and sign his petition. The more people who sign the petition will hopefully result in Congress stepping up and enacting real change.
