Congress Lives the Lives of The Rest of Us

We have seen many emails and petition requests that demand that when Congress shuts down the government, they should personally feel the same economic effects that their decisions are forcing on so many people who are losing pay for being sent home from their jobs.

Typical of any hierarchy, the people on the top make decisions that don't personally hurt them, but very  much hurts people in lower levels of the hierarchy.

How about health care? Let members of Congress feel what it is like not to be covered, or to be covered by a less comprehensive policy than they are given as part of being in Congress. We'll see how fast they move to bring health care to them and their families.
