The law is only for the little people: The White House has agreed to exempt Congressional staff from the high costs of Obamacare.

    I don’t mind the government acting exactly like any other private employer and paying for part of the employees healthcare.

    I do mind the government giving them extra in order to be bumped up the scale of available healthcare.

    I want them to have the exact same choices we all have at the exact same level of income. Let them eat at the same table they force everyone else to dine at. Not the executive dining room.

    They also should have to go to all the very same hospitals and medical facilities. Except the pres and VP for security reasons of course.
