Making them face their own music

Robert Cheeks at Postmodern Conservative had a pretty good idea.

I’m not in favor of nationalized health care insurance but it appears the Democrats are going to pass it. In that case I’d like to see two codicils attached to this possibly unconstitutional legislation that declare:

  1. Everyone is required to participate in this program, NO EXEMPTIONS.

  2. And the “NO EXEMPTIONS” include all federal employees and elected officials, including members of the House of Representatives, the United States Senate, the executive, and the judiciary. Additionally these people are specifically forbidden to participate in any auxiliary health care plan or to purchase health care out of pocket.

Though my preference is still to defeat the bill. Schadenfreude is a short-lived titillation.

Gil, as in favor of your propsal as I am, even the guys already against the healthcare bill would never allow it.
I'm afraid our only hope is in taking the power from them.
I don't like the way that sounds either. But it has worked in the past.
