No Democrat Reps Want Gov't Health Care for Themselves

Congressman John Fleming (LA), a former naval medical officer and general practitioner, and 43 other Republican members of the House have asked their fellow lawmakers to sign onto the Government single-payer health care system that Obama and his fellow Democrats plan to impose on America's current citizens, largely for the benefit of America's future citizens, today's illegal immigrants.

Although Democrats say that the health care plan is urgently needed, not a single Democrat has agreed to sign onto Obamacare. Instead, they are sticking with the Federal Employees Health Benefits (FEHB) Program, in which "federal employees, retirees and their survivors enjoy the widest selection of health plans in the country." Top-of-the-line PRIVATE health, dental, vision, and long-term care for them (all paid for by you); RATIONED GOVT health care for you (also paid for by you). Top-shelf life insurance for them; "let's see if you live through it" for you. You can read the federal employee health plan brochures here, if you have the time. Lots and lots of choice for them; no choice for you.

As the U.S. Office of Personnel Management tells your Congress about their health care: "When it comes to your health care, the best surprise is no surprise."

By the way, there are no plan brochures for what Congress has in store for your health care. In fact, your Congress isn't even remotely interested in reading what's in store for you and your family. Who has the time? It's over 1,000 pages and not done yet. Obviously, when it comes to your health care, the best surprise is total surprise. Otherwise you'd never let Congress anywhere near your family's health care.

Here, Fleming talks to Megyn Kelly of Fox News:

Faxes are attention-getting methods of getting your message across. Fax machines require maintenance, and, although faxes might not be read, they at least do pile up, leaving some physical evidence that you are still alive on the planet. I'm not so sure about those emails, although they can stress bandwidth at times. The following fax services are free:
