    On Tuesday, the Senate health committee voted 12-11 in favor of a two-page
    amendment, courtesy of Republican Tom Coburn which would require all Members
    of Congress and their staff members to enroll in any new government-run
    health plan.

    Congressman John Fleming has proposed an amendment that would require
    Congressmen and Senators to take the same health care plan that they would
    force on us. (Under proposed legislation they are exempt.)

    Congressman Fleming is encouraging people to go to his Website and sign his
    petition. The process is very simple. I have done just that at: .

    Senator Coburn and Congressman Fleming are both physicians.
    Regardless of your political beliefs, it sure seems reasonable that
    Congress should have exactly the same medical coverage that they impose on
    the rest of us

    Please urge as many people as you can to do the same!
