The most important amendment Republicans must propose for Obama’s Medi-Grab bill is a very easy one:

Resolved: that all federal and state employees must enroll in ObamaCare, without exception.

Any violation of this amendment will be punishable by a fine, imprisonment, and/or loss of federal or state employment. Enforcement of this provision will be overseen by a popularly elected commission, whose proceedings will be open to the public via the worldwide web.
 The problem is not that the proposed "reforms" will turn our country into some oppressive socialist state.  The problem is that they will be just another step down the road towards the day when government ceases to be the servant and instead is the master.

In retrospect, it seems obvious that reform proponents could have obtained far greater public support if their reforms had included provisions for private individuals and companies to be able to buy into the same health care "pool" as our elected officials rather than creating a "public option" that would inevitably be far less coverage than our public servants have come to expect.

Read the whole essay.  It is worth your time.
