A Note On Healthcare Legislation

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.
