Congressman John Fleming says....

Our hero of the day: Republican Congressman Dr. John Fleming.
Just when you think the Republic is lost and the socialists will be in power forever, up steps a congressman from Louisiana, Dr. John Fleming, to call the socialists out.
He proposed House Resolution 615, which requires those who vote for Obamacare to live under Obamacare.
Congressman Fleming: "If you vote for the health care plan proposed by the Democrats and President Obama, then enroll in it."

Taking to the House floor, he said: Gradually, the details of the Democrat Health Plan are leaking out to the American people. Call it whatever you like this proposal is nothing more than a government run healthcare plan if it has a government run option.

Interestingly it exempts members of congress from having to join a government run healthcare system. As a physician for many years, I amazed at the number of congressman who have enjoyed high quality personalized healthcare in this country, but are now willing to force post office style medicine on our people. In response to this I have offered a resolution that would give members of congress an opportunity to finally be accountable for the decisions we make and how they affect the lives of ordinary Americans. Most Americans feel that congressmen/women who vote for legislation creating a government run healthcare plan should lead by example and enroll themselves in the same public plan. I agree with them. As a result, I have introduced House Resolution 615 with a number of co-sponsors that simply says that if you vote for a government run healthcare option, you agree to choose government run healthcare for yourself and your family. I encourage members of both parties to vote for this. Thank you.
