Petition Background (Preamble):

All members of Congress, especially those opposed to universal healthcare coverage, should individually purchase insurance from private providers (at the same rates as the general public) until a viable and affordable public insurance option is made available to all Americans.

Petition:

We the undersigned, in order to promote equality in healthcare coverage, demand that members of the U.S. House and Senate forgo government provided health insurance through the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program (FEHBP) and instead purchase policies individually through the free market.

Until a viable, affordable and truly universal health insurance option is made available to ALL citizens of the United States of America, members of Congress should be denied access to "government run," taxpayer subsidized healthcare coverage.
