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.
Why is this important? In the last 2 weeks there has been a flood of posts about Rathergate and issues with the National Guard story, which for better or for worse has become a major issue in the media.
