Should Congress Get Health Care on Our Tax Dollars?
It's simple logic. Members of Congress who are elected to represent the interests of all of us have excellent health care benefits. Why shouldn't the rest of Americans?
Join this petition to send Congress a clear message: if everyone cannot get health care in the U.S., none of them should have it provided by taxpayers either.
By signing this petition, we can start to gather support for ballot initiatives in numerous states to deny (or allow) health care coverage to our representatives and senators in Congress.
We know they will not vote to stop their benefits.
So many of our fellow Americans are one illness away from economic ruin. So many families choose, month by month, between medicine or shelter. Doctor visits or food.
We can change how the American health care system works and for whom it works.
Why should Congress get free health care benefits from us when they won't support health care reform for us?

We the undersigned, strongly urge you to reconsider your positions on health care reform.
Millions of your fellow Americans make daily choices between medicine and shelter, doctor visits and food.
As a member of Congress, you and your families are provided health care coverage on our tax dollars. Why should the American public continue to pay your health care costs when we question your loyalties to ours?
Please, do what is right and not what is best for you politically at the mercy of special interest groups.
Your position on health care reform in the U.S. could save millions of lives.
Isn't our country worth that?
