Vitter Amendment, Good for all?

Most of us, Republican, Democrat, or Libertarian, would agree with the amendment proposed by U.S. Sen. David Vitter, R-La, the so-called Vitter amendment, which would make the Affordable Care Act applicable to senior executive branch officials, including the president and vice president. It means simply, that what is good for the ordinary tax paying citizen would also apply to the leaders of this government. I believe many are beginning to understand that Obamacare, while giving the appearance of having value, is in fact extremely questionable. But, (yes but), if Obamacare is all it is made up to be, should not its namesake, President Obama, sign on to the plan? Should not the illustrious members of Congress jump on that band wagon and walk the same path we peons tread? No sir! Mr Obama has said he will veto the Vitter Amendment! Not he, nor the majority of the Congress are willing to give up the perks they receive through the tax paying efforts of “we the people.” They would continue seeing their own doctors, while we lesser beings will be forced to take a number to see whomever is available, at the behest of government regulators (they will come) who will deem whether what ails us is important enough for treatment. It is time to speak up and make our voices heard. There is still time. As a concerned population frustrated by a government which even has the nerve to attempt to keep “we the people” from our national monuments and sites made sacred by the blood and sacrifice of heroes, we can still win this fight. With that in mind, we would do well to take heed of these words by that great British Bulldog, Winston Churchill: “If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without blood shed; if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.”
