Reading the Resolution, it's not all of congress, just the people who've voted for it, and not required either. Not only that, but it's only the voice of 9 congressmen saying this.
I think it makes more sense if it's all of congress; can't make a pot of soup and not eat, can you? Would keep the public option from going to hell if Congress had to use it; in fact, it would probably be quite good then.

They should do the public option. I also believe they should do something about some of these health care cards that some businesses mostly temps. Those things are basically worthless, you pay $50 a week for two people when you only make $350 a week and it doesn't cover anything. You get one free physical and 20% off of medical expenses, but not hospitalizations. I am hoping when they do legally require business to give out benefits those things will not be counted as their health benefits.
I'll try and mount some sort of defence for my much maligned nation by providing the counter argument to the 2 stories cited in this thread. First of, the letters to criminals is clearly only something being tested in one region.
