There is so much that can be said about our healthcare system and the reform efforts underway. Here is my previous post on the topic from August 19:
There is one special aspect of the current legislation that I would like to comment upon. This aspect is that no member of Congress or the President would participate in the proposed healthcare program.
I find this highly notable, and I am very disappointed by it.
It is a responsibility and obligation of leadership for them to be included in such a proposal. As well, their enrollment in the plan would signal confidence in the quality and benefits of the legislation.
If they have acted in a forthright and dignified fashion, and have fulfilled their fiduciary responsibilities as well as moral obligations in creating this legislation, they would ostensibly have no objection in including themselves in such a plan.
