    Under a Republican amendment approved Tuesday in the HELP bill, every member of Congress and their staffs would be required to enroll in the public insurance option. Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) authored the measure, which has become a rallying point for conservatives opposed to the public option.

    This is something a democrat would propose, not a republican.  I think it's a great addition; I thought I had misread it.
