GOP Amendment To Require Congress, Obama To Enroll In ObamaCare Voted Down

Congressman Roy Blunt, Republican from the 7th District In Missouri did his bit to reveal the fiction behind Obamacare by proposing an amendment to require all federal elected officials, including the president, vice-president, and the Congress, to join the government health care plan.

It was voted 'bout that?

“If the majority is really so confident that their plan will provide the very best health care for the people we represent, we ought to demonstrate that confidence by enrolling ourselves,” Blunt said. “I’m surprised, given that other committees in both the House and Senate have considered similar efforts in the last several weeks.”

“I, for one, don’t believe that a government-run health care plan will be the best for the people we represent,” Blunt continued, “But clearly the majority has discovered how potent this issue is. After all, if we are going to force this government takeover on the American people, let’s put our money where our mouths are and enroll ourselves.”

Well done, Congressman. Anyone want to bet that most of the votes against came from Democrat 'progressives'?
