Health Care Pledge for U.S. Senators

Powerline has posted a pledge that Virginia's two Senators have been asked to sign. The pledge needs to be placed in front the remaining 98:
My Pledge to My Constituents on National Health Insurance
1. I will not vote to expand the bankrupt Medicare program unless and until it is first placed on a sound actuarial basis.
2. I will not vote for any national health insurance legislation that includes a public plan unless I am prepared to enroll myself and my family in the public plan. If a national health insurance bill with a public plan passes the Senate with my vote in support, then I pledge to enroll myself and my family in that public plan.
Senators Hutchinson and Cornyn, how about it? I am pretty sure neither of them would have a problem doing so. It's so good to be in Texas.
