Young Ezra:

My ace reporting reveals that one element of the health reform strategy Edwards will announce today is a bill, to be submitted on his first day in office, ending health care coverage for the president, the Congress, and all political appointees on July 20th, 2009, unless they've passed health reform that accords with four non-negotiable principles Edwards will detail in the speech. If they don't pass comprehensive health reform, they lose their coverage until they do.

Not to get too wanky here, but I'm pretty sure this violates the 27th Amendment to the constitution.
