Healthcare Reform

Congress Is Exempthouse seal

While not directly related to Anne Arundel County, the current healthcare reform is an issue that impacts everyone.  Congressman John Fleming represents the 4th district of Louisiana. As he reviewed the plans before the House of Representatives, he noticed that Senators and Members of Congress were curiously exempt from the new reform.

He has introduced an amendment requiring that all congressional leaders be covered by the same plan that they ultimately enact for the American people.  This only makes sense, since we elect them to serve us.

Congressman Fleming is collecting “signatures” on his website. It is a simple transaction–first name, last name, email address.  If you believe congress needs to abide by the same rules, please visit his site where you can vote in favor of his amendment and also read a copy of the bill as it currently stands!

The web address is  http://fleming.house.gov/. Scroll down a bit and the form is right there.
