Job-Killing Health Care

Bah. They “won;” the GOP Congress got the votes they needed to repeal health care for 32 million people in our country. It *probably* won’t pass the Senate and I *think* I can trust my president not to “compromise,” but it’s still a major downer.

So, in celebration, we should demand that each and every one of the members of Congress who voted for repeal (including the three Democrats who did, Representatives Dan Boren (OK), Mike McIntyre (NC) and Mike Ross (AK)) also opt out of their government-run health care.

I got a message the other day with a “Proposed 28th Amendment” to the Constitution. It reads:

 
“Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators and/or Representatives; and, Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators and/or Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States .”

I’m not much of one for forwarding e-mails, but this seems like a nice place to leave that thought. Demand it of your representatives. We should have decided against the feudal system centuries ago.
