BARRETT TO OFFER AMENDMENT REQUIRING MEMBERS OF CONGRESS, SENIOR ADMINISTRATION OFFICIALS TO ENROLL IN NEW GOVERNMENT HEALTH CARE PROGRAM
“If it is good enough for American families, then it’s more than good enough for Washingtonbureaucrats.”
Washington, DC—Congressman J. Gresham Barrett (SC, 03) issued the following statement in regards to his intentions to introduce an amendment to H.R. 3200, America’s Affordable Health Choices Act, which would require all Members of Congress, Congressional staff and Senior Administration Officials to enroll in the government run health care program that will be defined under H.R. 3200:
“If Members of Congress and the White House Administration truly believe that a government health care option will provide the same timely and quality care that private sector health insurance does—then they and their staffs should be required to enroll in this option.
“If it is good enough for American families, then it is more than good enough for Washingtonbureaucrats. Therefore, I intend to introduce an amendment to H.R. 3200 that will require all Members of Congress, Congressional staff and Senior Administration Officials and staff to enroll in the government run health care program, if the legislation becomes law.”
