Health Bill Exempts Certain People

Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa has told us on his web site that he plans on offering an amendment to the recently passed health care bill during it's reconciliation in the Senate.

The amendment will seek "to apply the reform legislation to the President, Vice President, cabinet members and top White House staff."

Yep, you read that right. The health care bill that was passed Sunday night does not currently apply to the POTUS, the VPOTUS, his cabinet, his staff and members of Congress.

If it is so great and won't lower anyone's quality of life then why are they exempting themselves?
They should have to use it if we do. That way if it doesn't end up working (which it will) then they will know about it because they will experience it as well and the changes can be made to correct the problem.

This is not something novel to the democratic party. They have done it with education as well.

Obama keeps his kids in a private school while opposing the voucher program.  

Also remember Al Gore and others flying around the world in their Gulfstreams to tell us to watch our carbon footprint?

There are 2 Americas. The one we live in and the one our politicians live in.
