Max Baucus submitted a health care bill to the Senate in which he proudly claimed that it would require all senators and congressmen to be part of the plan. It did not surprise me when the bill was rejected. In fact no health care bill with such a provision will ever get passed by the House or Senate. The reason is simple — no senator or congressman would want for himself the Third World type of care that any bill of reasonable cost will impose on you and me.
