See this from US Rep John Fleming of Louisiana
Congressman John Fleming (Louisiana physician) has proposed an
amendment that would require congressmen and senators to take the
same healthcare plan they force on us (under proposed legislation
they are curiously exempt). Congressman Fleming is encouraging
people to go on his Website and sign his petition (very simple -just
first, last and email). I have immediately done just that at:
http://fleming.house.gov/ .. Please urge as many people as you can to
do the same! If Congress forces this on the American people, the
Congressmen should have to accept the same level of health care for
themselves and their families.
Wish he'd included SS and medicare for the representatives!

I am VERY skeptical of this. Senator Coburn OK has a similar plan and several democrats including Ted Kennedy have jumped on board. Why is that? Here is a link to that article.
But yes, I do think they should have to be on it. If not that, then why aren't they on Tricare like our troops are?
