FedCare For Thee, But Not For Me

Old Grouch spotted a WSJ article about a vote in a U.S. Senate Committee:
On Tuesday, the Senate health committee voted 12-11 in favor of a two-page amendment courtesy of Republican Tom Coburn that would require all Members and their staffs to enroll in any new government-run health plan. Yet all Democrats -- with the exceptions of acting chairman Chris Dodd, Barbara Mikulski and Ted Kennedy via proxy -- voted nay.

I would like to think that Chris, Babs and Teddy have seen the light, but I fear that it is more likely that they are True Believers.

Good point... Teddy will be dead before this is enacted anyway...
