Obama exempts himself from ObamaCare
Obama promised everyone would get the same health care as Congress. But Congress excepted its members and most of its staff from what they are forcing us into. Also the president and vice president. Are we surprised?
... The new health care law exempts the president from having to participate in it. Leadership and committee staffers in the House and Senate who wrote the bill are exempted as well. A weasel-worded definition of "staff" includes only the members' personal staff in the new system; the committee staff that drafted the legislation opted themselves out. Because they were more familiar with the contents of the law than anyone in the country, it says a lot that they carved out their own special loophole. Anyway, the law is intended to affect "ordinary Americans," according to Vice President Joe Biden
