Lords and Ladies, Revisited

About six weeks ago, I sent out a letter about Obama's plan to "reform" health care. In that letter, I asked this question: "Have you ever noticed that there is a tendency by the Lords and Ladies of Congress to apply certain laws and regulations on the serfs (the people) but exempting themselves?"

I went on to opine that perhaps we should send letters to Congress insisting that they go first with signing up for a new National Health Care plan.

Ted KennedyWell, it didn't take a genius to figure it out, but as reported in the Wall Street Journal by John Fund, "wait till you hear about the version of the Obama plan prepared by Senator Edward Kennedy, which would specifically exempt Members of Congress from many of its provisions." You can read the entire article in the Journal here. Let me issue the same challenge to all of you that I gave you six weeks ago...

Why not send a note to your member of Congress, Lady Speaker Pelosi, and Lord Leader Reid suggesting this idea. Tell Congress, "you think it such a great idea, give up your own gold-plated plan and sign up for National Health Care!"
      Pelosi                                                                                                            Reid
    E-mail the Speaker                                                                                                          E-mail Senator Reid

As always, I welcome your feedback. Feel free to post a comment or send me an e-mail.
