Fleming on Reintroduction of H.Res. 615: "Any health care law should apply to Congress, too."


Location: Washington, DC

Congressman John Fleming, M.D. (LA-4) issued the following statement after introducing House Resolution 615 today, legislation he first drafted in 2009 to urge Members of Congress to use the same health care that they require for the American people:

"I am hopeful that the Supreme Court will find Obamacare unconstitutional and overturn it, and that's why I have reintroduced H.Res. 615. If Obamacare is overturned, Members of Congress are likely to put forth new health care proposals, and when they do, the principle of H.Res. 615 must be preserved: Congress must live with what it creates. Any health care reform that is crafted for the American people must apply equally to Congress. I first wrote H.Res. 615 in 2009, when the Members of Congress who were writing Obamacare tried to exempt themselves from all of its requirements. They were unsuccessful, and I want to ensure that future efforts also require that Representatives and Senators must lead by example and be bound by whatever health care reform they create for the American people."

Dr. John Fleming is Chairman of the Natural Resources Subcommittee on Fisheries, Wildlife, Oceans and Insular Affairs and is a member of the House Armed Services Committee. He is a physician and small businessowner and represents the 4th Congressional District of Louisiana.
